Resources for Students

With the changing and uncertain pandemic environment, we encourage students to pursue alternate opportunities where possible. Get creative and take advantage of a different type of experience. We anticipate that many employers will want to see how job seekers handled the unexpected change, and if you aren’t able to pursue a remote internship or work opportunity, engaging in an alternate opportunity will demonstrate your initiative to think outside the box!
