NEW Series from the School of Business
Dear Students,

We find ourselves in a time where opportunities for connecting in person are limited. For business students in particular, this changes everything: strategies for networking, nurturing your soft skill development, and supplementing your time in the (online) classroom with hands on experience that will drive your future goals and career.

Over the next several weeks, we'll be sending out information that you can use as you take your next steps. We know you might not be ready to explore these options yet, and that's ok. When you're ready, we'll be here. We'll focus on virtual adaptations of resources you already know, as well as some new options we've created just for you.

For example, I'll be opening opportunities that are typically exclusive to your time in the BUSN3005 class to students across all of our campuses. The first is upcoming virtual chat with Valerie Gordon on networking and informational interviews (read on for more).

We hope the resources we send in the upcoming weeks will help you adapt to these changing circumstances with agility and confidence in your choices. We are still operating remotely, and here to offer support as you consider what moves are best for you to make.
Stay Well,

Kelly Kennedy
Associate Director of Student Development and Outreach
UConn School of Business
