JumpStart the Job Search
Audience: 2nd Year Graduate Students
When: October 2020, Weekly (Thursdays 12:30pm - 1:30pm ET - October 8, 15, 22, 29)
One of the most noticeable (and lingering) consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic is the impact on employment nationwide, particularly within Higher Education and Student Affairs. Given today’s landscape of hiring freezes and furloughs, redistributed workloads, and new job responsibilities as a response to COVID, the “how-tos” of the #SAGrad and #SAPro job search have changed. With fewer available jobs, graduate students and new professionals must look differently towards opportunities within Student Affairs, including searching for Higher Ed/Student Affairs adjacent roles.
This 4-part series geared towards 2nd-year graduate students will provide a “jumpstart” to the job search process. Sessions will provide practical tips for job search readiness to help participants stand out among other candidates. Come to one, come to all! Topics, dates, and registration link in each event.
