How can you become QUIC?

  • STEP 1: Gain admittance to your major within the Fisher College of Business

    Current Ohio State students are either directly admitted to a Business major or may apply to the Business major program by submitting an online application through the Undergraduate Programs and Advising Office.

  • STEP 2: Create a professional resume ready for employer review

    Resume examples are available via the Office of Career Management (OCM) website. If you would like assistance, stop by 150 Gerlach Hall to meet with a Peer Career Coach during walk-in hours or make an appointment with a Career Consultant through Handshake.

  • STEP 3: Stand out to employers with a completed profile on Handshake

    Go to OCM’s website and click on Handshake. Log in using your OSU name.# and OSU password. Complete your Handshake profile and upload your resume. The more completed your profile, the easier it is for employers to view your information.

  • STEP 4: Learn about interviewing techniques, Handshake, and Office of Career Management policies through the Carmen QUIC Modules

    On CARMEN, under “My Courses” you should see the “Office of Career Management QUIC modules.” If for any reason you don’t see this listed, click the check box next to “Other” on the right side of the screen under “Filter.” There are 6 modules with a quiz at the end of each, including a video answer to an interview question. When you have completed all six modules (which will take one hour, on average, to complete), you will have a better understanding of the services we provide, know how Handshake works, and understand OCM policies.

    **Note for international students: Learn about unique aspects of the job/internship search by additionally completing the Carmen International Student Workshop Modules. This workshop requirement can be completed online via Carmen. To access the online version of the workshop on CARMEN, under “My Courses” you should see the “Office of Career Management – Undergraduate International Student Workshop.”

  • STEP 5: Practice interviewing skills and pass a QUIC interview

    Once you pass your QUIC modules, you will be able to sign up for a QUIC interview in Handshake. To sign up for a QUIC interview, log into Handshake. Be sure that your school year (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior) and school/college are filled in on your profile. Go to the Career Center tab at the top, click on Appointments, then click on Schedule a New Appointment. Once you select your Category, you will see a list of Appointment Types - click on FCOB: Undergraduate QUIC Interview and follow the instructions from there.

    When you schedule your QUIC interview you will be asked to select a company and job description. You are expected to:

    • Do company research and infuse your knowledge into your interview answers, just like you would in a real interview.
    • Arrive 10-15 minutes early for your QUIC interview.
    • Bring a paper copy of your most updated resume.
    • Wear a suit (business professional attire is required).

    QUIC interviews will be 1 hour long, and will be conducted by a staff member of the Career Management team. The video you submitted as part of QUIC Module 6 will be included in the feedback portion of your QUIC interview. To prepare for your QUIC interview, review the QUIC Preparation web page.

  • STEP 6: Gain access to on-campus interviewing opportunities through Handshake

    QUIC helps you develop skills in interviewing and prepares you to do well in on-campus interviews conducted by employers who come to recruit at the Fisher Office of Career Management. All students must pass their QUIC interview (become QUIC certified) before they can participate in on-campus interviewing.

    Resume submission deadlines for on-campus interviews typically end 3 to 4 weeks before the interviews. There is no on-campus recruiting during summer term. Good Luck!

What if i need to cancel my QUIC Interview?

First, consider how delaying your progress to become QUIC by cancelling your interview will impact your search for an internship or full-time position.

Second, are you cancelling more the 24 hours prior to you QUIC Interview? A last minute cancellation is a violation of our policies under “Interviewing” and then “When you need to CANCEL or Request and Interview”.
