The Career Center staff thrives on connection with and support of our students, and we intend to provide support while our community works remotely. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
Remote internship opportunities are still available through Handshake
