OhioLINK opportunity helps Ohio State student succeed at work and on campus

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Jun 26, 2023) — 

After moving from India to attend graduate school at The Ohio State University, Anuja Dixit started a new job as a member services student assistant at the Ohio Library and Information Network (OhioLINK) about a week before classes began in fall 2022.

This head start allowed her to adjust to life at Ohio State and learn how to use university resources such as the Campus Area Bus Service with the help of her supervisor Tasha Bryant-Willis. At the same time, Bryant-Willis and her colleagues quickly made Dixit feel like a member of the OhioLINK family. OhioLINK is part of the Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH), a division of the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

“I feel important,” said Dixit, a first-year graduate student in computer science and engineering. “From the very first day I have felt that the environment was very welcoming, and every job I have done I get to learn something new.”

This article is part of a series highlighting how the Ohio Technology Consortium offers Ohio college students employment opportunities that provide hands-on experience in fields ranging from information technology and engineering to communications and administration.
