Dear Colleagues,

There are several updates from the Career Development Center. We are thrilled to partner with you on students’ career success for the 2017-2018 academic year and beyond.

Student Drop-In Appointments

The Career Development Center now offers 15-minute drop-in appointments for students seeking career assistance Monday – Friday, 9 A.M. – 4 P.M., in-person at the Career Development Center (B008 Kerr Administration Building).

Fall 2017 Career Events for Students

The Career Expo is only a few weeks away. This is an entire week of events for students to develop their professional skills, culminating in two career fairs where students will get to interact with hundreds of employers who want to hire OSU students!

Please join us in encouraging our students to invest in their futures by participating in these events. Please note, the entire OSU community is invited to attend! We would love to see you at the career fairs to chat with employers who may be hiring your students, and of course, we welcome anyone who would like to volunteer.

Please encourage your students to volunteer for this event; benefits include volunteer experience (which is great on a resume!) and face time with employers! Interested volunteers can sign up here for various shifts to accommodate your schedule.

Oregon State is on Handshake

Handshake is Oregon State’s new hub for everything students need from college to career. The Handshake platform was designed by students, for students with one goal in mind: to help college students find their way to their dream careers.

The more students use Handshake, the smarter it gets. When a student inputs their interests, preferences, and outcomes, the Handshake platform delivers content and jobs tailored to them.

If you want to get in the system and see what students see, please use our fully-functional student demo account, Betty Beaver.

Note: this account cannot be used in different places simultaneously. Please contact us if you get an error.
