  • Ohio State Newark students can access the site and register for event through the “Community Resident” tab.
  • Job seekers are strongly encouraged to upload their resumes prior to the event so that they can share them with employers.
  • Only job seekers who have been selected by employers will be able to schedule individual meeting/interview times.
  • When a job seeker has been selected by an employer to schedule a meeting/interview time, they will receive an email notification and an Alert! item on their COTC Job Board (CCN) Dashboard. Job seekers are able to schedule times by selecting “Check Interview Status.”
  • If the employer has elected not to link their calendar and video conference account and the job seeker has been selected to meet with the employer, the job seeker will be able to select a “Contact” button, reach out to the employer via email, and schedule a mutually convenient outside of the COTC Job Board (CCN) system.

In collaboration with the Licking County NAACP – organizations identifying as Black-owned businesses will be encouraged to make this notation within their company description.
