For the time being, the Career Center is offering its services virtually. Students can still schedule an appointment (held via phone or Zoom) with a career consultant on Handshake or call us at 205-348-5848. Here is a tutorial on scheduling appointments in Handshake. Please regularly check Handshake notifications for updates on appointments.
Students and alumni are also encouraged to explore our website for resources to develop their resume, interview skills, online portfolio, and much more. Students should also be aware of the external career resources tab. These resources can be instrumental in career development. For example, Micro-Internships offer students the chance to execute short-term, professional assignments on behalf of busy professionals.
Some companies have expressed they are still recruiting Alabama students, so you are encouraged to keep up with Handshake postings. Numerous remote positions are also being posted on Handshake. Candor is maintaining a list of employers and their current hiring status.
The Career Center also features a career tip every week. These videos offer advice related to maintaining career development virtually.
Finally, the most important thing is to stay up-to-date with COVID-19 and The University’s status. This information can be found at healthinfo.ua.edu.
