Student and Alumni Guide to Virtual Employer Engagement

We are all doing our part to prevent the spread of Covid19, including employers. As opportunities to network in-person are currently non-existent, you need to prepare for virtual engagement with employers. 

Are you prepared or are you asking yourself where to even begin?  Let us help you prepare for your job search and for connecting with employers in a virtual environment. CDCE has developed a guide containing strategies and resources that can assist you in preparing for virtual engagement with employers.
