Employer Recruitment Information

The CoF Student Services Office provides employers an opportunity to schedule general information sessions and interview rooms (or provide appropriate referrals for alternate locations).

On-site Interviews

Employers are welcome to schedule interviews in College of Forestry meeting rooms. Please contact Brooke Harrington to help coordinate an interview space. Sign-up sheets (provided by employer) can be made available to students. In addition, we are happy to post the positions you are hiring and interviewing for to the Student Employment Opportunities web page.

Employer Information Sessions

Employer information sessions are a great way to connect with students in a more casual setting.

  • Meet students who are interested in finding out about your organization.
  • Share current and upcoming career and internship opportunities.
  • Talk about your company culture.
  • Describe what a typical day at your company looks like.
  • Answer student questions. 

When should I schedule an Employer Information Session?

  • Information sessions can be scheduled anytime, but generally late afternoon or early evenings are a better fit for student schedules.
  • Session times can vary, but planning for at least an hour will allow time for your presentation and student questions.
  • You don't have to attend a career fair to schedule an Employer Information Session. They can be beneficial anytime during the academic year.

How will Student Services help you prepare?

  • Post materials (bulletin board flyers, monitor slides and Fernhopper blog announcements) provided by you announcing the event (date, time, location).
  • Make interview sign-up sheets (provided by you) available for students. Upon your request, sign-up sheets will be emailed to you the day before your campus visit and a hard copy will be provided upon your arrival on campus.
  • Be available upon your arrival to ensure that your information session runs properly and campus media equipment is set-up for presentations. Presentations can be loaded from a USB drive or Google drive.
  • Please send promotional materials to Brooke Harrington via email.

The OSU CoF Student Services will NOT be responsible for:

  • Coordinating, ordering, or paying for food and/or beverage (F&B) service. You are welcome to bring refreshments or arrange for delivery. You are responsible for clean-up of all F&B. We are unable to provide plates, utensils, napkins or cups for any F&B you provide. (Please note that not all classroom space allows food and drink. Please let Student Services know about refreshment plans ahead of time so appropriate space can be reserved).
  • Rooms should be returned to previous set-up and all media should be logged out and shut down at the conclusion of your event.
  • We prefer if you provide marketing and outreach material. However, we can assist with creating some flyers and slides if necessary.
  • Collecting resumes and/or pre-screening resumes or applicants. If you require resumes prior to your visit, please request that students submit them to you directly via email or mail.
  • Student Services will not provide parking permits. Parking permits are required for all labeled zones (A, B, C) Monday - Friday between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm.. Guest parking permits can be purchased on the OSU Transportation website

We look forward to working with you in the most effective and efficient way to benefit our students, the operations of the College, and employer recruiters. Thank you.
