Attendee Eligibility

Employers attend the SWE Career Fair to meet Ohio State students and students attend to meet employers and learn about career options related to their majors.

Who can attend?

Employers come to this event primarily seeking engineering talent; however, any Ohio State student with a current BuckID and the required nametag is welcome to attend.

Although it's sponsored by SWE, this event is for ALL engineering students, not just SWE members!

Who should attend?

If you are looking for an internship, co-op, or career opportunity, or if you just want to learn more about companies that hire your major, you should definitely attend!

Can OSU engineering alumni attend this career fair?

Yes. If you still have your BuckID, bring it. If not, be prepared to show your resume, indicating your OSU degree and graduation date. However, please note that employers at campus career events are typically looking only for recent graduates (no more than one or two years from graduation).

I am not an OSU student or alum. Can I attend the SWE Career Fair?

No. Employers conduct follow-up interviews through Engineering Career Services at Ohio State and such interviews are only open to OSU engineering students.

Do I need to be registered with Engineering Career Services to attend?

You can attend the SWE Career Fair even if you are not registered with Engineering Career Services.  However, it's very beneficial to have an active job search account with ECS since most of the employers conduct interviews through ECS because they like to use the ECS CareerEngine system.

Of course, there are hundreds of additional opportunities available all year around to help students with job search accounts. To register with ECS, visit: http://ecs.osu.edu
