Transportation Information

We encourage you to utilize the bus we have chartered for AU students to ride to and from OFIC CareerFest!

The transportation requires a $10.00 refundable deposit. The deposit will be returned to those who register to ride the bus and who follow through by riding the bus. Bus transportation is limited to the first 40 who register, but there are still seats available!
  • The bus will depart from College Avenue, in front of the Dauch College of Business & Economics at 9:15 am, and will leave Columbus at 1:30 pm for the return trip to campus.
  • Registration for the bus is required along with a $10.00 REFUNDABLE deposit (cash or check only).
  • Bus registration will close on February 5th or when the bus is full. 
Please note registration for the event is required (whether or not you plan to ride the bus).

Professional dress is required. You should also have professional resumes printed on resume paper for each employer you plan to speak with at the event. Resume paper can be purchased in the Ashland University Bookstore or in Career Services.

Still not convinced?

Just think how long it would take you to obtain a face-to face conversation with these employers if you were to contact them individually. A contact at this event might just lead you to the job opportunity you have been seeking.

Please contact the Career Services Center if you have questions!
