COVID-19 OCM Operating Update to our Rutgers Business School Students

Rutgers Business School Students,

Like many of you, we have been closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Rutgers University has made the decision to temporarily halt in-person services until mid-April, which includes those of the RBS Office of Career Management (OCM). Our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our students, employers, and staff.

We understand that the impact of COVID-19 may cause some concern among students, especially those soon to graduate who are engaged in a job search or internship. OCM staff will continue to do everything within our power to assist you in preparing for your career opportunities.

Thus, the RBS Office of Career Management is sharing the following with you:

Employment Services:

  • Job/Internship Applications: BusinessKnight, Rutgers Handshake New Brunswick, and Rutgers Handshake Newark are still available and continue to be robust resources for those seeking job and internship opportunities.
  • Interviews: We continue to offer interview preparation appointments. Since your upcoming interview will most likely be remote, we can assist in preparing for these virtual interviews. Contact your Program’s career advisor to set up a virtual appointment.

We will be using Webex videoconferencing technology for all appointments. Visit webex.com/test-meeting to ensure you have a Webex-capable computer.

Career Preparation Resources:

  • Online Resources: Access BusinessKnight for career tools and resources. We will continue to update these tools and add helpful tips;
  • Currently Scheduled Appointments:We will convert all currently scheduled career advisement appointments to virtual meetings. If you have an appointment, career advisors will send you instructions on how to connect via Webex as your meeting date approaches;
  • New Appointments and Inquiries: Contact your Program’s career advisor via email to set up a virtual appointment. See the email list below.

For more information on Career Management resources continue below.

Please continue to pay attention to email announcements from Rutgers University and Rutgers Business School, and visit https://coronavirus.rutgers.edu/ for further University-wide updates.

Thank you,
