Ways to Participate


The Career Center plans to host a combination of virtual, hybrid, and on-campus events for the 2021-2022 academic year. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 protocols, our goal is to conduct recruiting in the safest and most effective way possible. While we are currently accepting interview requests via Handshake, we do not anticipate any on-campus activity until at least October 2021 but it is more likely that in person recruitment activities will not take place until the spring 2022 semester.
