Letter from the Advisor: Your Summer Plans

I wouldn’t say the phrase “no news is good news” exactly works right now amidst the COVID-19 crisis, but as of yet, most employers in the technology industry are not suspending internships or full-time jobs so there’s no need to assume the worst right now. For example, 250 jobs and internships within data analytics, and IT roles and 70 jobs and internships in the software and internet industry were posted just last week on Handshake. Of course, this is not to say that things might not change. Many students I am speaking with this week are considering a plan B in case their original summer or postgraduate hopes do not come to fruition. This certainly makes sense and you may want to consider doing the same in the coming weeks.

But again, the positive news is that tech companies, especially those in the educational, virtual meeting, and video gaming space will be in need of workers. To learn more about job market predictions, read Forbes Magazine’s article, The Coronavirus Effect: Here are the Jobs That Will Be Added And Lost (new window). Luckily for those in tech, the article states: “Tech companies are still hiring feverishly as they move to take advantage of a world shifting increasingly to digital as a result of the coronavirus.”  Glassdoor also shares specific companies (mostly in healthcare and tech) eager to hire  (new window)in this economy.

As mentioned in my previous newsletter, as of now, 90% of employers still plan to continue hiring summer interns, according to NACE.  While I desperately hope this doesn’t change, my next hope is that many of these employers will be willing to hire interns and FT employees to work remotely.  Don’t discount this alternative in your job search!

In the meantime, Cawley will continue to keep you updated on the job market and support you in thinking about your options including a potential plan B. To receive the latest updates from Cawley, you can visit this page.

Take care of yourself in the meantime, please. Pretty. Please.
