The OSU HIRE System is an internet resource for employment. The online database is OSU Career Services' way of publicizing job announcements for full-time career positions and internships as well as part-time and work-study positions. The HIRE System also manages on-campus interview opportunities, including student applications and sign-ups, and archives student resumes for employers to search and view online.

In short, students receive five basic benefits from maintaining an active HIRE System account:

  • Access to full-time, internship, part-time and work-study job postings.
  • The ability to apply for on-campus interviews with employers.
  • Resumer referral service.
  • A secure site through which to post a resume for employers to view online.
  • Access to and the ability to RSVP for upcoming Career Services activities and events, including employer information sessions and mock interview days.
