Career Fairs

Knowlton hosts two career fair events each year. The Planning Internship + Career Connections Fair is hosted in autumn semester and our the Knowlton School Career Fair, a school-wide event, is hosted in spring semester.

Planning Internship + Career Connections Fair

Held in Autumn Semester, this event focuses specifically on City & Regional Planning students with the aim of introducing students to both public and private sector opportunites. The next event will be held Friday, October 25, 2019, from 2-4pm in Knowlton Hall. Employer registration is open now.

Knowlton School Spring Career Fair

Traditionally held in late February, this event is an excellent opportunity to gain visibility for your organization with interested and highly qualified Ohio State architecture, landscape architecture and city and regional planning students, as well as those in closely related disciplines, seeking internship and career employment opportunities. Registration for the 2020 fair will open in November 2019.

Email Angela Beer to be added to the contact list for either event.

Job or Internship Postings Using Handshake

The Knowlton School and Ohio State use Handshake, a comprehensive, web-based career services management platform for sourcing, engaging and hiring talent for internship and career employment positions.

The Ohio State University closely follows guidelines for professional conduct set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Please review the NACE Principles for Professional Practice.

We do not accept positions or programs that charge a fee for participation, positions that are hosted at a residential address, or employers without a corporate domain. The Knowlton School reserves the right to deny other positions on a case-by-case basis in order to protect the best interests of our students.

Posting Policies for Private Home and Business Owners

The Knowlton School does not provide architectural or landscape architectural professional services or consulting to private home or business owners, nor are students able to complete such work for free or for course credit. Architecture and landscape architecture students are just that—students, and as such are not licensed professionals. Therefore, they are unable to take on the work of an experienced, licensed professional without the necessary education, training and supervision that would typically be required. Knowlton is unable to supervise (student) employees on behalf of external entities nor is the school able to “sign-off” on drawings or provide legal advice. In consideration of this, we do not post "positions" for private home or business owners seeking design assistance.

Office Associateship Program

The Knowlton School partners with the design and building industries to attract and retain exceptional students through the Office Associateship Program. The program fosters collaborations between the school and the profession through a student sponsorship plan that provides outstanding graduate students with cash stipends and direct exposure to practitioners. By becoming a partner in the program, you and your firm can have a direct, positive impact on the Knowlton School and, in turn, on the design and planning professions.

Mentor Program

The Knowlton School Alumni Society also plays a role in preparing students for professional practice through its Mentor Program. The Mentor Program along with other alumni events like portfolio review sessions and mock interviews provide current students with access and exposure to professionals in the areas that they are studying.
