Ohio Technical College offers employment assistance to each student successfully completing the curriculum as an integral part of its mission through the College’s Career Services Staff. This service is divided into two areas: part-time and career placement. While the College makes no guarantee of future employment, the placement process has been designed to make the most of a student’s energy and abilities.
Prior to graduation, each student participates in a mandatory job-seeking skills meeting with the Career Services Staff. This meeting covers resume writing, communicating with potential employers, interviewing skills, and an after interview follow-up. The student and Career Services Department then build career leads in the cities the student is interested in after graduation. It is through such interviews that students receive the job offers that lead to career employment.
As a part of each student’s initial registration at the start of class, he/she participates in an initial placement interview and completes an information form. It is through this form that the Career Advisor learns whether or not the student is interested in part-time employment while attending OTC and if so, what kind of work the student is qualified to do. The Career Services Advisor will then assist the student in finding part-time work.

A conviction for any offense under any federal or state law involving the possession or sale of illegal drugs, during a period of enrollment when receiving federal aid, will result in the loss of eligibility for any Title IV, HEA grant, loan, or work study assistance. A conviction that was reversed, set aside, or removed does not count, nor does one received as a juvenile, unless tried as an adult.
The chart below illustrates the period of ineligibility for FSA funds, depending on whether the conviction was for sale or possession and whether the student had previous offenses. (A conviction for sale of drugs includes convictions for conspiring to sell drugs.)
|Sale of Illegal Drugs|
|1st offense||1 year from date of conviction||2 years from date of conviction|
|2nd offense||2 years from date of conviction||Indefinite period|
|3+ offenses||Indefinite period of ineligibility||Indefinite period of ineligibility|
To regain eligibility, a person must successfully complete a drug rehabilitation program recognized by a federal, state or local government agency and the program must include at least two unannounced drug tests OR if the conviction was reversed, set aside or removed from the student’s record. If a student is denied eligibility for an indefinite period, the student can regain eligibility after completing a drug rehabilitation program as described previously or if the conviction is reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record so that fewer than two convictions for sale or three convictions for possession remain on the record. In such cases, the nature and dates of the remaining convictions will determine when the student regains eligibility
