Make sure to keep up-to-date with job and internship postings on Handshake! To meet with a career coach, you can attend drop-in times or schedule an appointment on Handshake today!

Featured Employer Fridays

Career Development is pleased to offer a virtual series called, Featured Employer Fridays, where we highlight one employer over Zoom Webinar. We are focused on a specific career field each month. Students can ask questions and have them answered during the live webinar. Some previous participating employers include Cartoon Network, Hulu, Alliance Theatre, and New Story.

Past Featured Employer Fridays can be viewed on Oglethorpe University’s Career Development YouTube playlist. If you are an employer interested in participating, please contact Nicole Kang at [email protected].
