Career and Job Fair

Despite the cold and blustery day, the 41st Annual Career and Job Fair brought over 1100 Ohio State students – upcoming and recent graduates from all majors – to the Ohio Union on January 29, 2014 for a chance to speak with representatives from over 85 different companies as varied as Land O’Lakes, Inc. and the United States Department of State. Presented by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) and the Job Fair Student Association at The Ohio State University, the fair was open to all students and is the largest such event at Ohio State and one of the largest in the region. The format of the Job and Career Fair allows organizations to meet students on the first day then invite promising candidates back the next day for an interview.

For some companies, this is the first year they participated in the Career and Job Fair; many other organizations have returned year after year, stating that at each fair, they always find highly-qualified candidates to fill positions within their organizations. Students who attended this year’s event said that they were happy to be able to talk to so many different organizations in one place and that being able to interview the next day with companies who wanted to see them was invaluable.

Next year’s Career and Job Fair will be held on January 28 and 29, 2015. For a list of other 2014 Career Fairs at the university, click here.
