Career Services goes virtual to continue serving students, employers
The Office of Career Services has remained open during the coronavirus crisis, serving the career needs of undergraduate and graduate students as well as alumni.
Moving to a virtual setting has not hindered the ability to work with the HU community for Jeff Kayer and Kristin DiMatteo, Harrisburg University’s Employer Relations & Career Development Coordinators.
The Office of Career Services has spent the week working with regional employer partners and successfully identified a multitude of opportunities for HU students. Companies like WebFX, Eurofins Labs, PHEAA as well as the commonwealth of Pennsylvania have actively encouraged students to apply and have identified ways to interview them virtually using programs like Skype and Zoom.
Both Kristin and Jeff have been working with HU faculty, notably those who work with seniors to encourage them to work with Career Services and not be discouraged by the changing landscape of the job market.
Additionally, Career Services has worked one-on-one with nearly 20 students, having done numerous resume reviews, offered advice on how to identify jobs and conducted mock interview sessions, with more scheduled for next week.
They remain eager to work with the HU community to ensure all students and alumni are supported and are given the best opportunities to succeed.
Anyone needing assistance or those who would like to share success stories are encouraged to reach out to them at firstname.lastname@example.org
