Working as an office assistant at the Career and Leadership Development Center gives me access to learning about the options it has for students. Bobcat CareerLink is a great resource for finding jobs and internships for current students and alumni.
Using Bobcat CareerLink
When I first logged onto BCL, I was not sure how to use it, but after clicking the links and discovering how it could help me, it is easy to figure out. It’s a resource worth using for all students. Students register for an account and upload their resume to BCL to get it approved here. After getting approval, they can search and apply for jobs and internships.
Students can favorite jobs to keep track of ones they like and apply for them directly through BCL. All jobs and internships available are listed. Students have the option to search for keywords to find a job in their field. Clicking on the job gives the company’s website, a description of the job, its location, pay and compensation, duties, requirements and contact information for the employer. For many internships and jobs posted, students can apply directly from BCL or be directed to the company’s website.
Every student has a profile to put their academic information such as major, minor and GPA, as well as personal information, experience and talents. This provides extra information about students if employers are actively seeking someone for, a position. All CLDC events regarding the Career Fairs, workshops and employer visits are listed on the events page. Bobcat CareerLink is easy to use and an important resource for all Ohio University students to use.
