Fisher students can schedule phone, Zoom, or in-person 30-minute appointments via Handshake. Once you log in to Handshake, click on "Career Center" and then "Appointments".
For Fall semester 2021, all QUIC Interviews will take place virtually only (no in-person QUICs will be offered).
Peer Career Coaches are providing feedback on resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles via Zoom drop-ins and in-person drop-in hours on Tuesdays during fall semester. If you would like feedback from a Peer Career Coach please visit the Peer Career Coach webpage for the Zoom link and drop-ins schedule.
Thank you for your patience as we work together to ensure health and safety at Ohio State and beyond.
To provide opportunities for students to continue developing themselves personally and professionally during the summer, the Office of Career Management has compiled a list of online resources for students to explore on their own! The list connects students with materials to build their knowledge in various skill sets with accredited online entities, including Tableau, Udemy, Adobe Creative Cloud, and others. It is the Office of Career Management’s hope that amidst these uncertain times, this resource list can be a useful tool for Fisher students.
Visit our Frequently Asked Questions web page for answers to most questions concerning QUIC, internships, job search training, appointments, career fairs, Handshake, and more.
Our services to undergraduate students
The Office of Career Management provides many services and resources for our undergraduate student population. Our mission is to provide highly personalized services to develop the best prepared job seekers and be every employer's favorite place to recruit.
Our commitment to helping our diverse student population
The Office of Career Management is committed to providing job search assistance to all of our students. We recognize that everyone’s needs are not the same and that diversity is something to be celebrated. Because each student has a unique background and set of qualifications to offer potential employers, not everyone will have the same path to obtaining employment.
