Blazing the Trail for your new talent
Career Services bridges the gap from students to employers. We encourage students to begin preparing for their career journey, in their first year of college, continuing over the course of their academic careers. We encourage them to explore themselves and the world around them. And, along the way, we hope they will gain real-world experience through summer employment, shadowing, internships and study abroad programs in order for them to be prepared to implement their educational experiences in the professional world.
Career Services offers job postings, an Annual Career Fair and networking opportunities throughout the academic year to increase your brand and recruit top talent. The third week in February is our Business Exploration Week. The third week in March is our Health and Education Exploration Week and April is our Arts and Science Exploration Week. Our Annual Career Fair is held in the fall each year. There are also numerous opportunities inside and outside of the classroom for students to meet and hear from U of O alumni who are successful in a wide variety of careers. In addition, the University hosts business, industry and government leaders in an assortment of events and programs throughout the year.
We are a PurpleBriefcase school. Purple Briefcase allows employers to post and manage an unlimited number of jobs and internships, and conduct student searches for qualified applicants.
Note: PurpleBriefcase is intended for the exclusive use of Ozarks students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as by legitimate employers seeking to hire Ozarks candidates. Registrations, profiles and postings by persons outside of the Ozarks community or for illegitimate, illicit or illegal purposes is strictly prohibited. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
Log in or register to get started on PurpleBriefcase.
If you would like to participate in any of these events, please contact Career Services.
