Resources for Students

With the ever-changing, uncertain, and mostly remote pandemic environment, we encourage students to pursue alternate opportunities where possible. If you are able to, 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! Additionally, please keep in mind the guidelines put forth by Harvard with regard to working: https://seo.harvard.edu/undergraduate-covid-19-updates
