The post I am writing today is about the job I currently have at OSU. I am the Risk Management Assistant for OSU’s Risk Services. I have held this position since February of 2019 and I learned of it through the COB’s This Week in Business newsletter. For me, the job description was hugely important. The job description laid out major duties of the position, key functions, and requirements. I met all minimum qualifications for the position and nearly all preferred qualifications. After seeing this, and reading the job description, I believed I would be a great fit and was encouraged to apply.
After holding the position for over a year, I would say the job description very closely matches up with what I actually do. I would say it is 85% accurate. The other percentage that deviates is likely because I have exceeded the “normal” time most students hold the position, so I have been challenged to take on additional tasks, which has been great for my learning. I have attached below the Position Summary from the original job posting, so you may get an idea of the work I am writing about.
