Towson University is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As the situation continues to change, our top priority is the health and safety of our community. Learn more about Towson University's response to the coronavirus.
All TU Career Center events and gatherings scheduled through spring 2020 semester have been cancelled. This includes the Spring Mega Job & Internship Fair originally scheduled for March 27. Refunds for employers who had paid for the fair are in process.
Employers can continue to post positions to Handshake, as employer requests and position postings will continue to be reviewed and approved during this time. Learn more about Handshake at our Handshake Employer FAQ page.
Micro-Internships – TU is partnering with Parker Dewey, the largest freelance platform connecting college students to companies large and small for immediate short-term paid jobs and projects—completed virtually.
Employers can also participate in Virtual On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) by requesting interview schedules via Handshake for virtual interviews from March 30 through May 7.
Finally, we encourage employers to get creative and consider experimenting with a virtual event, information session, hosting a virtual tour of your offices, or perhaps a panel session featuring alumni who work at your organization. We are happy to help you think things through; do not hesitate to contact us as careercenter AT_TOWSON. If you decide to try something, you can submit the event in Handshake for approval and once approved, you are off and running!
