It’s spring and companies are beginning another round of campus recruitment efforts. The SWE Career Fair is just around the corner and ECS wants to make sure you are a part of the many ways to connect with employers. Intern Week(January 22nd – 29th) was developed for students seeking internship experiences and looking for ways to connect with professional skills and engineering employers. The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) reported that a majority of companies discover new hires through on campus resources, activities, and clubs. So, while your resume is important, it is just as critical to begin building relationships with recruiters in person.
Attending networking events can be intimidating—especially if it’s your first one. Intern Week purposefully includes unique ways to engage with employers in a less formal setting; so no matter your comfort level there’s something for you! These are just a few of the … Read More

Adam Jacobwitz and NeuroLife project team at Battelle Memorial Institute
Each year, ECS hosts our Cool Co-op Contest, and a winner is chosen in each of the following categories: Perk, People, and Projects. Last year, Biomedical Engineering student Adam Jacobowitz won the Project contest for his incredible experience working on the NeuroLife project at Battelle Memorial Institute. Below, he describes what made his internship so unique and special.
In the interview, I remember saying “sci-fi” so many times that to this day, two years later, I’m still surprised I was selected for the NeuroLife intern position at Battelle. To me, as an outsider, the work that was being done on the NeuroLife project at Battelle Memorial Institute looked like it really did come straight out of a science fiction movie. The NeuroLife project is a joint study between Battelle and the Ohio State Medical Center that allows a quadriplegic … Read More

Today's blog is written by MaryKate Wintz, 2017 Chemical Engineering Alumna currently working as a Process Development Engineer with The Lubrizol Corporation.
Buzz words during the job search almost always include “transferrable skills”, but what does that mean? How can something that you do when you are in high school relate to your college school work, let alone an internship or entry level job in a technical career? How can you find those skills that will allow you to move seamlessly from the classroom to workplace?
I started working when I was 14 years old as a cashier in the gift shop at a historic B&B. From there, I held jobs ranging from receptionist to leasing agent to coach before finding my 5-term co-op with The Lubrizol Corporation. As a graduate of Ohio State, I moved to Cleveland to work full time as a Process Development Engineer with Lubrizol … Read More
