The Career Center staff thrives on connection with and support of our students, and we intend to provide support while our community works remotely to complete the academic year. We look forward to the day we can be together again; until then, here are the ways we will support you. Please let us know if you think of additional ways we can provide support by writing email@example.com.
Students will continue to initiate individual meetings with Career Center staff members via Handshake. (desktop or app)
The appointments will be conducted by Zoom (or Google Video Chat/Hangout, if needed)
When creating appointments, students will select which communication method they prefer.
VMock will continue to be used for the review of resumes.
For cover letters and other documents, students will create a meeting via Handshake then share the documents with the staff member via Google Drive
The deadline to apply for funding will now be April 15.
Events will now be virtual and offered via Zoom. Links will be shared on Handshake and our website. If you need support to join any virtual session please call (931) 598-1121. It is best to log in all virtual events 10 to 15 minutes prior to allow for any additional support necessary.
LinkedIn remains a great way to connect with Sewanee alumni. [Search > People > Filters > School: Sewanee > then apply additional filters]
Sewanee Gateway: Use your Sewanee single sign-on (Banner username/password) to access a new platform with a wealth of alumni resources. You can search by industry expertise, location, specific areas that alumni are willing to help, by company name, by major, and by Greek organization.

LinkedIn Learning: videos to learn and expand skills (not merely learning about the LinkedIn platform...content was formerly Lynda.com)
Fee based programs such as Harvard Business School CORe, Harvard Business School Entrepreneurship Essentials, Northwestern Kellogg Digital Marketing Strategies, online coding courses, and other opportunities provide students an excellent chance to remotely build skills. University internship funding will not be allocated for such programs.
