Services for Students
On-Campus Job Interviews
On-campus Interviewing is available to College of Education and Human Ecology (EHE) students and alumni. They will have the opportunity to schedule interviews with employers that contact our office and schedule on-campus interviews.
All sign ups are first-come, first-served and candidates must meet the requirements of the position description and have a résumé posted in the Handshake.
Throughout the year, Career Development sponsors job fairs. The office also supports job fairs sponsored by other departments at The Ohio State University. For the complete list of career fairs go to https://careers.osu.edu/students/career-fairs-and-preparation
Advising: Career and Internship
The professional staff of Career Development will meet with those in need of career advice by appointment. To schedule a career advising appointment, call 614-292-9261 or schedule through OnCourse with Katie Moore (Education Majors) Derraya Miller (Human Sciences major) or Nancy Dugan.
Job Search Documents Assistance
The job search requires candidates to produce documents such as the cover letter, résumé, portfolio, and follow up correspondence. View the Résumés and Letters webpage for a guide to writing these documents. The Career Services professional staff can provide guidance and offer reviews of these documents.
Job Listings (online)
Handshake is an electronic job posting bulletin board. While many electronic job search engines are available on the internet, Handshake posts positions upon the employers' request to target candidates from the College of Education and Human Ecology. This free service allows students and alumni to search job postings, receive campus recruiting notices, and register for job fairs.
Workshops or Class Presentations
The Career Development professional staff would be happy to meet with a group or class to discuss career related topics. To arrange for a Career Development professional staff to meet with your group. Contact Nancy Dugan (email@example.com).
The final step in the hiring process is the interview. The interview may involve meeting with one person or it may involve meeting with several different people. It may take place on one day or it may be spread over several days. Sometimes the interview process will take place in a social setting (dinner or a party), and other times it will be strictly in an office setting. In other words, no two interviews are exactly alike and you must be prepared for anything. For more information about interviewing check out the Internship tips (link below) and schedule an appointment with our office and set up a mock interview, call 614-292-9261 or schedule through OnCourse (go.osu.edu/oncourse) with Katie Moore (Education), Derraya Miller (Human Sciences) or Nancy Dugan.
