Fall 2020 Recruiting UpdateAll recruiting, professional development, and networking programming will be conducted virtually for the foreseeable future, including the Fall 2020 semester. Please see the Catholic University Guidelines regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and in-person events for more information. The Office of Career Development is here to help you find the right talent for your organization even in a virtual format. Virtual recruitment through the use of Zoom, Google Meet, Handshake, and other online platforms will be used to facilitate campus recruiting and hiring efforts. Catholic University has licenses to use Zoom and Google Meet, which the Office of Career Development encourages organizations to use for recruiting efforts, though organizations may use their own virtual platforms if so desired.

Post a Project or Micro-Internship with Parker Dewey
The Busch School of Business has been closely monitoring the challenges associated with COVID-19 and its impact on student internships. As such, we would like to encourage our employer partners to consider posting short-term, professional, paid work experiences we’re calling Micro-Internships which can be completed remotely. To facilitate this, we have partnered with Parker Dewey, an online platform that manages the posting, hiring, and HR paperwork of these Micro-Internships.
Beyond providing you or your colleagues with immediate support on tasks, they also support your university recruiting efforts during this challenging time. Specifically, Micro-Internships help you identify, assess, and nurture students who may be prospective job candidates. Employers post an opportunity, receive applicants, and hire the student for the project.
For students, Micro-Internships allow them to demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and build relationships with prospective employers. These paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work and are projects that are similar to those completed during a typical internship.

- Mock Interviews
