Join MCSLE and the Career and Professional Development Center for “Conducting a Job Search in the Midst of a Pandemic… and Post-Pandemic.”

The program will happen via Zoom.

For many of us, searching for a job (or an internship) can be a bit daunting; and, during a pandemic that’s interfering with normal daily life as well as the economy, the job search may be even more daunting. Join us for a discussion (that means we want you to be engaged with thoughts and/or questions!) about searching for a job during this challenging time. Remember, IUP and your Career and Professional Development Center are here to support you—our students and graduates! 

Attendance vouchers will be available. For more information, email sixoclock-series@iup.edu.
