The Unplanned Detour

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 - 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm EDT

Are you someone whose job or internship plans have taken an unplanned detour? Join a group of employers who will discuss the professional pivot that students and employers are making in response to the 2020 workplace.

Economic challenges and fewer employment opportunities require student resilience and the ability to pivot as well as the ability to articulate your transferrable skills. These employers will talk about some ways that their companies have pivoted in innovative ways to maintain their commitment to students through project work, shortened internships, and other flexible solutions. Join the following employers for an opportunity to network and learn from them: 

  • Cindy Hendrickson, University Relations Manager at General Electric
  • Tiffany Bloyer, MS, MBA, PHR, SHRM-CP, Director of Human Resource at Franklin County Government
  • JohnPaul Bennett, Corporate & Group Sales Manager at National Fitness Partners (Planet Fitness)
