  • Refer a Student


    We invite you to refer students to the Career Network. To refer a student, email the Career Network at career@ohio.edu with the student's contact information, or show them how to schedule an appointment on Handshake

    When to refer students to the Career Network (though any career-related topic is appropriate for referral to our team):

    • Exploring industries or networking within a particular industry
    • Uncertainty about how to find a job or internship
    • Deciding whether graduate school is necessary 
    • Developing skills for effective interviewing
