Summer 2021 Plans

Remote Availability

The Career and Leadership Development Center (CLDC) is open year-round and all staff are working remotely until further notice. 


The CLDC will host events virtually during the 2020-2021 academic year, including all CLDC career fairs. Please visit the Career Fairs page on Handshake for event information. Employers are encouraged to contact Aaron Sturgill, Associate Director for Employer Relations, with questions. Students and alumni can also access a list of CLDC events coming on on the Calendar of University Events or the Handshake Events Calendar. More information about events for 2021-2022 is coming soon.


All coaching services are available during the summer by telephone and Microsoft Teams for students and alumni. These services include mock interviews, career coaching, and leadership coaching. Please schedule all appointments through Handshake. For more information about how to log in to Handshake and how to schedule, visit our About Handshake page. If you have difficulty scheduling on Handshake, call us at (740) 593-2909 or email careerandleadership@ohio.edu

Career and Leadership Workshops

Our career and leadership workshops will not be available after spring semester concludes as we review and revise our outreach plans. Through the end of spring semester 2021, you can still access our pre-recorded sessions. For any questions about workshops, please contact Lindsey Ward, the CLDC's Associate Director for Leadership, Inclusion and Staff Training.

Career Closet

Schedule a 30-minute career coaching appointment to discuss how to dress for interviews or virtual career fairs, how to dress for work, and any other professional dress-related questions. All appointments are being held through Microsoft Teams or telephone and scheduled through Handshake. Learn more on our Career Closet page.
