Full Access to Career Planning Services Still Available

Student at Laptop

The Office of Career Planning has adapted quickly to ensure that students continue to have full access to our services — OCP is open for business! As our campus has migrated to online courses and services over the past few weeks, OCP has gone virtual, as well.

We continue to be available for student appointments and drop-ins via Zoom, which students can schedule through Handshake, our interactive recruiting platform. Employers, too, are getting into the virtual swing of things, and have a number of online recruiting events scheduled, also posted via Handshake. Encourage your student to download the Handshake app to stay on top of upcoming career-related events and to view job and internship postings. Many industries and organizations are seeing significant growth, including technology, healthcare, marketing, and streaming/delivery services, with a variety of opportunities available.

To help students stay focused on their professional development, we have hosted a variety of career-focused events over the past few weeks. Recordings of these events can be found on our YouTube channel.
