April 7, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: 

Hey everyone, 

I hope you were able to get some much needed R&R this past week. I know I very much enjoyed the warmer weather and the time off of a screen. This week’s message will be short. I know many of you have been asking me of late if you are “late” in getting started with your job and internship searches. The short answer is “no!” In fact, as you can see in this newsletter, there are MANY opportunities on Handshake. 

Of particular note, do check out this interesting article on the education industry. Due to the challenges of the past year, many senior teachers have retired, leaving a large need for new talent. Since the pandemic started, education has been one of the few industries hiring more than ever before. And don’t worry – you don’t need a degree in education to be a teacher. There are all kinds of opportunities at various levels. Be sure to check out our page on Careers in Education for more information. You can also take time to watch a panel of alumni discussing the ways they’ve been involved in the field of education. 

As always if you have any questions, or want to chat more about your particular search, feel free to make an appointment with me, or Grace. We’d be happy to help!
