Community Events

On-Campus and Virtual Interviews

Each year employers come onto campus to hold interviews with students who seeking jobs and internships. We encourage you to take full advantage of these opportunities. Even if you are not actually hired through an on-campus interview, the experience in itself can be valuable in preparing you for interviews you may later obtain off campus.

On-Campus Organizations

In doing so, Ohio Wesleyan students who join the club will become tutors, bettering their communication skills and understanding of finance while giving back to the greater community.
