Attendee Eligibility

When can I attend?

The 2020 SWE Career Fair will be held on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 from 1:00pm-6:00pm.***


The first hour of the career fair is ONLY OPEN to BS students within one calendar year of graduation, OR students actively pursuing a MS or PhD degree, OR alum who graduated within the last 12 months.


Open to ALL students with a valid BuckID

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.

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 the SWE 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 ECS.  However, it's very beneficial to have an active job search account since many employers conduct interviews through ECS after the SWE Career Fair.

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