Not only is it a new semester, it’s FALL semester! And fall semester means seeing your college friends again, football games, changing leaves, cool weather… the list could go on!

Welcome back to campus! I took a walk the other day around the stadium and heard the percussion section practicing nearby —so I know the time is near.

Have you heard of the Ohio State Engineering Job Shadow Program? Are you debating it, but not sure you want to spend your spring break doing “professional stuff?” Let me try to convince you that job shadow is totally worth your time—plus each job shadow event is only ONE day, so it’s not like you have to spend your whole break being productive.
- Unlike almost every other job search related event, YOU choose companies you interact with rather than waiting for them to select you.
- You’ll be doing something useful over Spring Break that will further your career.
- In ONE day, you can find out if you like a particular industry/company/job type…much quicker than deciding during a full summer internship or co-op.

They have maintained solid GPAs and have completed multiple co-op or internship rotations. Most importantly, they have a desire to help other students be successful too!
What they do:
Career Fair Coaches are assisting ECS in preparing students for the upcoming fair in two main ways:
- Career Fair …
