Lancaster – The Ohio University Career and Leadership Development Center at the main campus in Athens has developed a video to help regional campus students learn about the services and opportunities available to help them find a job.
"The video highlights the resources and services we offer to all students, but shares the best ways for regional campus students to access and utilize them," said Graduate Assistant for Regional Campus Outreach Jodi Wildermuth. "The intention of the video is to make regional campus students feel informed and confident in utilizing the Career and Leadership Development Center."
The five-minute video has been posted on the Ohio CLDC Youtube Channel. In the video, different officials at the CLDC are interviewed about the many ways regional campus students can access the services they have to offer.
"We can do everything we can for our Athens campus students, which includes doing mock interviews, preparing your resume and cover letter, prepping for the job search or getting some more leadership skills," said Assistant Director for Outreach Lindsey Marx.
Regional campus students often say one of the reasons they do not use the CLDC services is because Athens is too far of a drive. But, Marx said regional campus students can make phone appointments with CLDC workers. Sessions with a CLDC advisor can even be scheduled over Skype or via e-mail.
The video also talks about the career fairs that are held each year in Athens.Even though it may be a bit of a drive for a regional campus student, there are many networking opportunities for those who attend.
"I encourage regional campus students to get involved with the career fairs," said Associate Director for Employer Relations Kim Blue.
Approximately 10,000 students attend Ohio University's five regional campuses.
