Career Services

Our goal is for all students to graduate and begin successful careers they enjoy and are well-rewarded for. Job Placement Services is the key bridge between our students, our alumni, and current and potential employers.

Job Placement

Ohio Technical College offers career placement assistance to students and alumni of our training programs. Common sense and Ohio state law specifically prohibit the guarantee of any kind of employment. However, our placement process is designed to make the most of your energy and abilities.

Prior to graduation, each student participates in a job-seeking skills seminar that covers:

  • Employer research
  • Resume writing
  • Communicating with potential employers
  • Interviewing skills and after-interview follow-up

After creating self-developed leads and then combining these with referrals from the Job Placement Services department, students can contact the companies to schedule interviews. It is through such interviews that students receive job offers that lead to employment.

On-Site Recruiting Visits

Employers from all over the United States visit the college on a regular basis with the intention of interviewing and usually hiring several soon-to-be graduates. They will present the career opportunities in the field and the benefits their company offers.  This recruiting is done right on campus grounds and affords students who are interested an opportunity to discuss career possibilities with a company representative.

Career Fairs

The college offers several career fairs a year in which employers from all over the country come to inform and interview our students.  Many of these employers provide tuition reimbursement plans and scholarship opportunities for students.

Part-Time Job Assistance

We understand that a large number of our students will need to work in order to afford their education and living expenses while enrolled. Our Job Placement Services department maintains a substantial list of local part-time and full-time job opportunities and will assist students in contacting these companies as well as with resume writing, interviewing techniques and more.
