A letter from the Executive Director in response to COVID-19 and the University's suspension of in-person classes and activities: 

Dear Campus Community,
As you are aware, Wesleyan has transitioned all classes to distance learning models for the remainder of the academic year. Please know that Gordon Career Center services remain available for the duration of the semester and throughout the summer. 
We are rapidly transitioning all our functions, including one-on-one career advising, to online formats. We will be continuously updating information regarding virtual events on Handshake, and students can continue to schedule advising appointments through the platform.
 
​The application process for jobs and internships through Handshake remains the same. Most employers are already accustomed to conducting recruiting activities online. We encourage students to practice remote interviewing through Big Interview, a video interview training platform, and leverage the rest of our electronic career guides and tools in our Resource Library on Handshake. 
 
Wesleyan Summer Grant applications are still being reviewed and award recipients will have the opportunity to submit a revised application should their summer plans change.
 
The Health Professions committee letter process for students/alumni applicants to medical, dental and veterinary school will continue the set timeline all through the spring, and the letter uploads to AMCAS, AACOMAS, TMDSAS, AADSAS and VMCAS will occur during the summer as usual.
 
As always, seniors will retain access both to Handshake and career advising services after they graduate.
 
For up-to-date information on the Wesleyan’s response to COVID-19, see Wesleyan.edu/coronavirus. If you have specific questions about the operations of the Gordon Career Center, please contact careercenter@wesleyan.edu.
 
All best wishes during this difficult time,
 
Sharon Belden Castonguay
