In an effort to promote the health and well-being of UMW’s community during the COVID-19 outbreak, all instruction will be conducted online starting March 16 and continuing through the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. The Center for Career & Professional Development is dedicated to providing as much support as possible, and has moved to all virtual services. Below is information for students, employers, and faculty on services from CCPD. We will be updating our social media feeds (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) during this time and you can always feel free to contact us via email at email@example.com.
During this very hectic time, it is important to take care of yourself physical and mentally. Communication is a very important part of that process. Stay in contact with your faculty, your employer(s), the career center, other UMW community members, family, and friends.
- The Career Center is open and ready to help! We are ready to answer questions about your internships, job search, resume reviews, etc.!
- One-on-one appointments with a Career Coach can be scheduled via Handshake. Appointments can be done online or phone via Zoom or Email. Please choose your preferred method when making an appointment.
- If you would like an email resume or cover letter review, email your documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive a review within two business days.
- If you are currently enrolled in an IDIS course, please contact your instructor for guidance on the remainder of the semester.
- If you have any other questions related to the Career Center, please email email@example.com.
- Face-to-face internships (for which remote work or an alternate modality is not possible) should follow the same schedule outlined in the university’s operational timetable which means that on-site hours are suspended through the end of the semester.
- Students enrolled in for-credit internships should connect with their faculty sponsor to review the number of internship hours completed and discuss alternate means of completing the internship. Depending on the number of hours worked, the student and faculty member could decide that the internships commitment relative to the credit received has been met and/or could be met with an appropriate academic component.
- The Center for Career and Professional Development is ready and prepared to support these conversations. Please contact Bianca Hightower at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or the general Career Center email at email@example.com.
- If you have questions about posting a job or internship, or want to discuss future on-campus recruiting options, please email Rose Maddox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you have questions about your spring or summer internships, please email Bianca Hightower at email@example.com.
