We are all currently in a stage of adjustment and learning how to adapt to our new normal. Whether that may look like doing everything (eating, sleeping, taking classes, working, etc.) from our homes, to being home with our entire families and trying to figure out how to find a quiet place to study, read a book, or simply collect our thoughts.
I admit it – I’m a scrolling fiend. Whether it’s staying up-to-date on news and events, checking up on friends, or simply taking a few minutes (okay… many minutes) to unwind, I find myself on Instagram probably too many times during my downtime. To try to alleviate that screen time guilt, I often try to find and follow accounts that I feel might be helpful to my personal development and growth.
First years did you know that the Career Center has a program exclusively for you called Fyrst Contact? Well, we do, and it is an amazing program. This program connects first-year students with companies and employers who are interested in engaging with first years. Fyrst Contact is offered virtually and it is more of an information session versus a recruitment session. Keep in mind, some of the companies who participate are looking for interns and will provide that information during the session.
You can view and register for these sessions through CareerConnections.
