Job Resources

To most effectively pursue a job after graduation, become familiar with the resources that will help you land the position you want, prepare materials for your search, and develop a timeline.

Resources

The Russ College Office of Cooperative Education and Career Programs provides job search resources and coaching.

At Ohio University’s Office of Career Services, a $5 fee gives students access to job search engines with geographical and topical searches. (The Russ College covers this fee for students who register within two weeks of the first day of fall quarter classes.) Registering is highly recommended. Career Services also provides resume referrals and organizes career fairs that bring employers to Athens.

Materials

Creating an effective resume and cover letter is a key step in the job search. The resources above or your academic advisors can help review proofread these documents.

Timeline

Registering with Career Services with plenty time to develop your job search is recommended. Students unsure of job preferences can benefit from Career Services’ self-assessment survey about career goals.

  • Register with Career Services
  • Prepare a resume
  • Attend career fairs
  • Identify companies
  • Apply for jobs/make contacts with companies
