Ohio State University is always hiring someone for something. Have you checked http://jobs.osu.edu/ ?

Columbus is the state capitol. The state government should have a web site of jobs. Google around. How about the Columbus Chamber of Commerce with your background? Also, Honda has a big plant north of Columbus.

Umm, Considering he ran AGANIST the current administration...
There is that little issue with Politics.

Besides that He would end up pulling his hair out with the insanity of state workers.

I am now submitting my resume to companies for post graduation employment, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any Columbus area firms that are hiring.
I am graduating with a degree in International Business, with a minor in Economics... I have 2.5 years of experience in government administration, over 5 years of farm management experience, and brief non-profit experience....

I am open to working in almost any field, and my salary requirements are relatively low (I am hoping for at least $9 an hour to start as that is what I am currently making)...

Any thoughts on who might be hiring? (Yes I have already went to all the websites, I am just trying to find some word of mouth openings :) )

Best wishes. :thumbsup:

I.M.O. Columbus's government has become a bastion of socialist power. If you like firearms I recommend any city over Columbus, Ohio. Anywhere out of Ohio would be preferred. :shocked: :sad:

Some people working for the City of Columbus have opinion quite different from the mayor's and the council's. If you are able to get a job in the city, take it.

I'd do a web search of the largest Columbus employers(Chase, Nationwide, etc), then check their websites. Some of the better personel agencies, ie Dawson) have temp to hire positions.

I'd increase your salary requirements, at $9/hr is a bit too low and might cast you in an bad light with such a nice sounding degree.

agreed. people don't get degrees to make 9 bucks an hour. the MINIMUM starting wage you should be looking at is probably $15/hr.

hop on monster, or career builder, and check out what YOU WANT to do and what it is paying in your area. then GO FOR IT.

what i've learned recently is that good jobs are gotten one of two ways. by knowing someone, or by the internet.

more good companies are accepting resumes by internet, hiring by internet, etc...

if you can't find anything through monster, pick a few companies you would like to work for and go to their websites, like anyplainjoe said. biggest thing with that is, make sure you apply, and then contact them in a few days to "follow up" on your resume/application. that will put you WAY ahead of the 100 other applicants who simply sent their info in and forgot.

I work in the HR field, so maybe I can add some input.

In today's society only 4% of the jobs landed are from the internet. (Monster, CareerBuilder and Yahoo's Hotjobs.)

86% are from NETWORKING, you have to know someone to get a job. Sad but true!!! Tell everyone you know that you are on the market. (Cousins, neighbors, friends, church members, old high school buddies, or any one else that will listen.)

10% are still from the good ole Sunday classfieds.

Shocking, but these stats are from a 2005 survey so they are very recent. The thing about the internet is that you're competing with a huge audience for the same job.

Recent college grads should expect to make between $28K to $35K depending on your field, education and location.

Hope this helps and if I can help, just let me know.

Huh, I would have thought the internet figure would have been much, much higher.
