Meet with an Advisor

ECS has shifted to a hybrid delivery model, allowing for both in-person and virtual appointments. All appointments will be conducted in accordance with Ohio State efforts to keep students, staff, faculty, and our partners safe during COVID-19.  The ECS website and Handshake include up-to-date event information.  You may also send quick questions or resume reviews via Ask ECS.  We are excited to help you with your job search needs!

  • Resumes: Content, appearance and strategy advice in a one-on-one session with a career advisor.  Much more than just proofreading!  Start by creating a resume using an ECS template—look in your Handshake account for resume template options
  • Job Search Documents: Stand out from your competition, by using cover letters, reference pages, and thank you letters!  We’ll help you tailor your documents to specific postings and ensure you are including relevant material.
