Appointments & Drop-In Hours
As of August 2020, Business Career Center staff will offer phone/virtual appointments. Students and alumni are invited to schedule phone/virtual meetings via Handshake (as you would an in-person appointment, details here). Further, you are welcome to continue to email resumes, cover letters and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org for electronic review.
Fall 2020 drop-ins will be held via the chat system on the right hand side of this screen. Drop-in hours are a great way to get to know BCC resources and have quick questions addressed. Examples of drop-in meetings include learning more about an upcoming career event or on-campus recruiting activity, talking through Internship for Credit options, or guidance on applying for a position through Handshake. As drop-in hours are designed to be around ten minutes in length, we encourage you to continue to utilize full appointment slots (information below) for questions pertaining to cover letter or resume creation, interviewing preparation and practice, job/internship search strategies, etc.
Drop-in hours are offered from 12pm - 3pm central time, Monday - Thursday, when classes are held.
Job and internship opportunities as well as employer-provided virtual events will continue to be posted within Handshake. Students are encouraged to remain active in their career exploration and job/internship searches.
Career events for fall 2020
Per Phase Four recovery guidelines, on-campus and off-campus events, indoor or outdoor, currently cannot exceed 50 people and must comply with current room capacities for campus spaces. This aligns with the 50-person cap for academic spaces. As such, all multi-employer events for fall 2020 will be virtual, including 2020 Careers in Finance, 2020 BizNet, and the fall 2020 Career and Internship Fair.
