Are you looking for a chance to meet with top OSU employers and learn more about being an engineer? If so, consider signing up for the 2016 Job Shadow Program! The Job Shadow Program is a one day commitment over Spring Break (March 14-18). You can sign up for more than one shadow if you’d like.

You may have heard that no career fair programs are being printed and sold this year. Is this true? It is! Paper programs will no longer be printed and sold for any engineering career fairs! The complete program information is available via the OSU Career Fair Plus app and the app is free. Search for the OSU Career Fair Plus app on the App Store or Google Play Store.
Prefer a paper version of the program? We understand that some students might still like having a hard copy of the program, so we are making the full version available for you to print. Please check the swefair.engineering.osu.edu or ecs.osu.edu websites after January 25th.
In the past, the paper program has served as your admission ticket. Going forward, your BuckID and a printed name badge will serve as your admission ticket. … Read More
