Finding Employment

Finding Employment:

There are several opportunities to find student jobs on and around campus:

Handshake:Handshake is Ohio State’s new university-wide position posting system where students have access to search and apply for part-time jobs, internships, co-ops, and full-time career opportunities. Thousands of jobs, internship and career opportunities are posted in Handshake as well as information on upcoming career fairs and on-campus recruiting events.

Student Job Board: Here you will find jobs posted by Ohio State University departments, local businesses, and members of the community looking for student help. These jobs will be part time or seasonal and specifically intended for current Ohio State students who need employment in proximity to campus.

Work Study: The Student Financial Aid office offers information about work study positions that are a part of the students’ financial aid package.  Some employment opportunities listed are open to all applicants, not just work-study.

  • The Student Services Office hires work-study students once or twice per year.  Students interested in this opportunity should contact an HRS advisor as close to the start of the academic term as possible.

Wexner Medical Center: Students interested in applying for jobs at the Wexner Medical Center should check this site often- new positions are usually posted on a Tuesday or a Thursday.  There are many applicants for each job posted and students may need to apply to several positions before they are hired.

Networking Opportunities:

Network with fellow HRS alumni via LinkedIn and other social media.

The OSU Alumni Association, which all graduating seniors receive one free year of membership with the option to continue renewing their membership, has many career management opportunities including networking, job fairs, resume writing webinars, etc.
