COVID-19 Career Response

In effort to support all students in their own career process, we have developed several resources including how to conduct a job search and internship search throughout COVID-19, tips for working in a remote setting, and general office FAQs to help answer many questions you may be having. Not seeing your answer? Email us at career@gettysburg.edu and we will be happy to assist.

What are Career Engagement’s hours?

Career Engagement will continue to offer support to students and alumni between our normal business hours of 8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. (EST) and 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. (EST) with all appointments being held via Zoom. If our business hours do not suit your time zone and you would like to set up an appointment with a career counselor, please email career@gettysburg.edu with dates/times that work in your schedule and please note the time difference. We will do our best to be as flexible as possible with our availability in order to support you during this time.

How do I schedule an appointment?

Make an appointment today via Handshake to discuss your career and job search. Can’t find a time that suits your schedule? Email us at career@gettysburg.edu. Appointments are available on Zoom, Skype, or phone.

Will you still send the weekly Career Bulletin?

Career Bulletins are sent Mondays, highlighting trends, ways to engage, job and internship spotlights, and more.

What resources are available online?

Don’t forget our existing Resources Page and Handshake Resource Library. We have built several COVID-19 related resources including a Job Search FAQ, Internship Search FAQ, an Online and Remote Work FAQ, and a Resource for Building Skills at Home. We will continue to offer virtual events through the semester. Check back to stay updated on upcoming events.
