COVID-19

Students

Marshall University Students,

Our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our students, employers, and staff. Thus, we in the Office of Career Education (OCE) are sharing the following with all students.

Employment Services:

  • Job/Internship Applications: Handshake is an available and robust resource for those seeking job and internship opportunities.
  • Information Sessions: OCE staff will work directly with employers and students to provide alternatives utilizing videoconferencing technology or employer-provided systems.
  • Career Expo: We will have two Career Expo’s to limit room capacity on March 30th and 31st.
  • Currently Employed: Students currently working in an internship or job should check in with their employer to see if you should still report to work. For those earning credit for your internship, contact your academic coordinator for additional information.

Career Preparation Resources:

  • Online Resources: Access the Office of Career Education website for information about interest clarification, mock interviews, industry information, and more.
  • Currently Scheduled Appointments: We will convert all currently scheduled career coaching appointments to phone or virtual meetings if you wish. If you have an appointment, career coaches will send you instructions on how to connect.
  • New Appointments and Inquiries: We ask that you submit general questions on career-related topics to career@marshall.edu. A career coach will respond as soon as possible.

Employer Partners

Employer Partners,

Like many of you, we have been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our students, employers, and staff.

  • For those who are looking to provide more information about their positions and/or company, we suggest holding a virtual information session on Zoom or WebEx.  Per your direction, we can make an announcement on Handshake and will direct all students to these virtual information sessions.

If you have any questions about the purpose or usefulness of utilizing virtual platforms, please let us know.  We want to keep the lines of communication open with our employers and students.  Please reach out to Jennifer Brown, brown346@marshall.edu or Erin LaFon, lafone@marshall.edu.

Thank you for your continued interest in our Marshall University students!
