The College of Education and Human Sciences Career Services team facilitates career exploration and professional development for all students -- undergraduate and graduate. We collaborate with program area in support of internship and professional practice experiences as well as graduate, professional, and medical school applications.
Ready references are a series of handouts that provide an overview of information about career exploration, professional development, and job/internship search. These references cover details to get you started -- we then encourage you to follow up with a career consultant who can provide additional and more personalized guidance. Topics covered include resumes, cover letters, preparing for graduate school, networking, interviewing as well as many others.
Individual consultations are another resource available to students within the College of Human Sciences. Our college career consultant, Dr. Brecca Farr (LinkedIn: Brecca Rhea Farr), is available to meet one-on- one or in small groups to assist students with their career preparation needs. For example, Dr. Farr regularly works with students to review resumes and LinkedIn profiles, brainstorm internship or job search strategies, and provide feedback for cover letters and personal statements. Dr. Farr is also GCDF certified and can provide assistance with several career assessments available to OSU students as well as with general questions about careers.
OSU Career Services coordinates several career fairs each year. These events are excellent opportunities for students to learn about prospective employers, gather industry-related information, network with company representatives, and apply for a range of opportunities -- including internships, seasonal employment, and full-time positions.
