“What we have been telling students is that this is not a time to be picky or overly choosy,” said Andy Chan, vice president, innovation and career development at Wake Forest. “This is a time to get experience.” He urges students to work closely with their colleges’ career centers to keep track of new postings, polish their resumes and practice virtual interviews. “We have a team of people who are contacting alumni, as well as searching the job boards and finding jobs that are hard for students to locate. Over these last few months we have found a thousand more jobs than a student could find on their own and are putting them in front of students.”
