Day 23:

“Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we’re going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time.”

-Frank from Old School

3 reasons to come to the career fair instead of running errands (like Frank), updating your Facebook status, golfing, or watching Jersey Shore:

  1. It’s a down economy, yes; however you can get tons of exposure to awesome companies who are specifically looking to hire YOU, OSU students.  Invest a little time now and it will pay off.
  2. Employers want YOU. Most recruiters that come to the career fair realize you’re still in school.  Yet they are recruiting you in anticipation that you might need a summer job, internship, or maybe you’re going to graduate in the spring and need a full-time job.  Wherever you’re at in your college career chances are there’s an employer who is looking to fill those spots now and will reserve a place for you when the time is right.
  3. There’s always lots of time to update your status, blog, shoot hoops, or catch up on all your DVR’d shows, but make sure you allot a little time to investing in your future.  Don’t miss a golden opportunity to network in person!
