  • In this time of social distancing, now is the time to establish connections to enhance your career. Follow USU Career Services on Facebook and @usucareers on Instagram for timely career tips.
 

Just because we are all practicing social distancing does not mean you cannot network with people in your industry. Networking will just look a little different; you can have a virtual chat or conversation over the phone. It can be done! Think about how happy a ‘newly remote worker’ would be to receive a thoughtful email requesting a quick phone conversation – make new connections and revive old ones. Network with recruiters/hiring managers and alumni through various online tools.

In the middle of all the chaos, fear and uncertainty, it is normal to wonder if you should put your job search on hold or keep looking. Use this time to continue to develop yourself.

 

Career Services is committed to the well-being of our entire community. Stay informed about how our campus is responding with online resources to support your journey.
