      Career Services wants to invite you and your students to attend the Winter Career Fairs. The Fall Career Fairs had over 200 employers in attendance, and we anticipate as many or more will attend the winter fairs. Career fairs are a great opportunity for faculty and staff to develop and foster their own relationships with some of the nation's top employers, as well as for students to network, explore career options and find internships, part-time and full-time jobs. Over and over again, students tell us they look to faculty and staff for career information and advice, so we want to encourage you to let your students know about these events.

      New this year is the OSU Nonprofit Career Day on Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007 from 3:00-6:30 in the MU Ballroom. Explore non-profit and socially responsible career options. Co-sponsored by OSU Career Services and the student Biodiesel Initiative, and made possible by generous contributions from ASOSU, College of Business, and Departments of Biology and Geosciences.
