Dear UGA Employer,
As you may have heard, the University System of Georgia has instructed its 26 institutions to temporarily suspend instruction for two weeks beginning March 16, 2020. Here are details on that announcement.
As the status of COVID-19 rapidly changes, all of us here at the UGA Career Center want to reassure you that we will continue to provide a high-level of service and support as you continue to recruit UGA students for full-time jobs and internships. Please note the following measures we're taking during the next two weeks.
During this time, we would like to suggest alternative methods to connect with UGA students.
- Be sure to continue posting your jobs and internships on Handshake at hireUGA.com
- Consider using Handshake to schedule a virtual event or information session using Zoom or Google Hangouts. Our office will be highlighting these events weekly in our campus-wide Career Center eNewsletter. Click here for further details.
Host on-campus interviews virtually. This service provides the opportunity to post a position, preview candidates’ resumes, and arrange to individually interview candidates via the virtual platform of your choice. Here's how to get started:
- Go to hireUGA.com and click on Campus Interviews, as you would normally.
- Once you have successfully logged into your Handshake account, select “Interviews” and follow the prompts.
As with a typical pre-select Interview Schedule, you will select the date you wish to conduct your interviews. When selecting “Requested Room Count” you are actually selecting how many interviews schedules you would like to host on that date. If for any reason, a date shows no available “rooms”, please do not hesitate to reach out so that we may add more Virtual Rooms on that date to accommodate your needs. Requests will be approved as quickly as possible. Want to learn more? Contact our Recruiting Coordinator, Debi Grayson.
Schedule an Instagram Story Takeover. Your University Recruiter or another member of your team has an opportunity to 'takeover' the @UGACareerCenter Instagram account and share details about how your organization is still recruiting UGA students and what that process currently looks like. Want to learn more? Contact our Associate Director, Whitney Prescott.
Encourage UGA Alumni at your organization to join the UGA Mentor Program as this program provides a convenient way for them to invest in a student’s future, virtually!
We truly value our relationship with our recruiters and are available to offer assistance as you navigate this new environment. Please visit UGA's Coronavirus Website for the latest information and guidance related to the University's response to COVID-19.
