We take your career seriously.

        Here’s how:

        An Oregon State University degree will help you develop the critical thinking, communication
        and leadership skills necessary for success in any career — and in life.

        Plus, there are lots of resources to get your future off to a good start. Every Oregon State
        college has a dedicated career development advisor who will give you individual attention.
        The Career Development Center hosts more than 10 large career fairs, networking receptions,
        panel presentations and other career events each year. They’ll help you:

        •  Identify your career strengths, values and interests

        •  Write a winning résumé
        •  Set up mock interviews

        •  Find jobs and internships in your field

        •  Use social media to advance your career

        •  Learn to negotiate a salary

        Top employers come to campus, 500+ a year. Employers like Nike, Intel, Samaritan Health
        Services, Union Pacific and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
