Strategic networking can benefit you in the short and long run.

The Career Center also has workshops for all students on campus and will be putting on a summer workshop series for students entitled “Landing a Job in the Digital Age” throughout the month of July.  We will focus on various job search-related topics in a post-Covid 19 and increasingly digital world.  This series would be a great fit for both students who are currently in a job or internship search, or for those looking to get a head start on strategies for an upcoming search.
