Preparing students who are ready to contribute

Companies look to Ohio State to find the best and brightest talent – and many are now taking notice. 

Ohio State alumni are among the best-prepared college graduates in the world, according to Times Higher Education, which compiles data to rank higher education institutions internationally. In March 2019, the publication recognized Ohio State graduates among the 20 "most employable" in the United States and in the top 60 in the world. Wall Street Journal has listed the university No. 12 in the nation for sought-after graduates, and Ohio State consistently ranks in the top 20 public U.S. universities listed by U.S. News & World Report overall.

We work with centralized and college-based career services offices throughout the university. We’re here to help you connect with the right talent from around the university to develop your workforce.
