Internships and Research
A Career Advisor will be assigned to the COF community in the University-wide Career Exploration and Development services unit. COF students will participate in required career advising (group and/or 1:1) with the Career Advisor assigned to this career community. The team leverages an industry-focused career community approach, matching career advisors with students based on their career goals and post-graduation aspirations by industry. The career advising team creates a career community by establishing relationships and partnerships with early talent recruiters, alumni within organizations, and organizational leadership to create pipelines for our students from exploration to graduation. COF scholars will receive a variety of career services from each of these career services units like:
- Career information and counseling about career paths in Ohio
- Identification of career-related internship and options and opportunities business partners
- Career preparation, including mock interviews, resume and CV writing support
- Follow up with career counselors after internship completion for further optimization of preparation for job placement
Research internships will be provided by three university-wide programs at Kent State that will be open to all COF scholars.
