Career Success During COVID-19

The Baylor University Career Center wants to make sure Baylor students continue to work toward their career goals. A lot of graduating seniors across the country are worried about finding jobs, but there are more companies hiring and interviewing than most people realize. We are continually working with both students and employers to make strong connections towards internship and job offers. The best advice is to stay positive and to stay active in your pursuit of professional success.

In the weeks since the COVID-19 started having an effect on Baylor and being on campus, our CSPs have had almost 600 virtual appointments with students looking for jobs, trying to get into graduate school, and searching for internships. We are hearing success stories from these students daily. Success stories like these:

"I was accepted into Baylor's graduate school, with a $9000 merit-based scholarship, to pursue my MS in speech-language pathology! Thank you so much for your continued support and guidance... you are part of the reason I am where I am today"! -Clare Kuhlmann, Communication Sciences and Disorders '20

"I GOT THE JOB!!! I’ll be working as a 7th grade Pre-AP Algebra teacher for Idea. Thank you so much for all your help Desiree"!!! - Ann Hinton, Integrated Studies '20

"I can’t express my gratitude enough to the Baylor staff and family for guiding me to success and finding a beneficial job for post-graduation. With this, I am announcing that I have accepted a full-time job offer with Amazon as an Area Manager in Houston, Texas. I was able to build a strong connection with multiple officials in the Amazon company at an info session at Baylor University and worked my way towards employment". - Marion Dubose, Management '20
