Career placement after collegeLife after graduation can be an overwhelming and scary time for some graduates. Many wonder: “Is my resume good enough?” “Are my interview skills sharp?” “When will I land a job?” “Where will I land a job?”

Transitioning from the academic realm to the workforce full-time holds several uncertainties, but none that you won’t be prepared for as an OBC student.

At Ohio Business College, we make it our mission to help every student prepare for his or her future career and feel confident and ready to enter the competitive job market upon graduation.
