The Center for Career Development and Experiential Learning (CDEL) at Edinboro University offers extensive online resources, tools and even virtual appointments with a professional career counselor/coach. We are now working hard to bring students, alumni, and employers and even graduate schools together in innovative ways by developing, promoting and hosting virtual recruiting events
Our ‘Events” section is now filled with virtual opportunities for students and alumni to engage with employers or learn about career development topics. Students, faculty and staff will begin to receive weekly TartanEdge updates in their email inbox featuring our newly added events, articles and resources. We plan to add new virtual recruitment events every week, and many new events and resources will be added daily, so there has never been a better time to make sure you are checking our website often. The CDEL is also partnering with several other PASSHE institutions to make our collective resources available to all of our students, free of charge!
We will keep a running list of our virtual recruitment events and resources here in this blog post, as well as on our main Events page. Please check back often, and be sure to view our YouTube channel for plenty of screencasts and instructional videos as well! As always, the CDEL staff is here to support you, and we wish you and your loved ones well during this “new normal.”
Please note that many events will be hosted in Handshake. If you have not yet activated your Handshake profile, click here to learn how.
