Schedule through Handshake
Students and alumni can use Handshake to schedule appointments with the career and leadership team. Handshake is a modern career development platform, that connects you with employers, career events and one-on-one services. Login with your OHIO ID and password. For extra guidance in scheduling an appointment, see Handshake's useful guide.
CLDC offers one-on-one services Monday–Friday between 8am–5pm. Drop-in services (offered Monday–Friday 11am–4:45pm) do not require an appointment.
Appointment Cancellation Policy
If you cannot come to an appointment, please cancel your appointment at least 24 hours prior to its start time through Handshake so someone else can schedule in this time slot. If you do not show up to your appointment or cancel within 24 hours of the appointment, we will note this a “no show" on your Handshake account. After two “no shows" you will be suspended from scheduling appointments for the remainder of the semester.
Avoid Job Scams
Anytime a company is seeking a monetary transaction, this should be a red flag that this is a scam. Never deposit checks sent from a company or give personal information, such as bank accounts, to a company during the interview process. Emails from companies that ask you for money or want you to deposit checks before doing any work are scams.
If you receive a message similar to this, “We received your resume from your career services for a possible job placement. Please respond to this email if you are still job hunting or you are looking to earn additional income,” this could also be a scam.
If you receive any emails or paperwork from a company that may not seem legitimate please forward the information to the Career and Leadership Development Center.
