University Talent Director Jarett Hartman talks with San Diego State University Director of Career Services, Beverly Bracker

With universities switching completely to remote learning and some internship and job opportunities gone due to COVID-19, students may be struggling with the question of “What should I do now?”

Tech San Diego’s University Talent Director Jarett Hartman sat down for a virtual conversation with the Director of San Diego State University’s Career Management Center, Beverly Bracker. They talked how students can gain experience during the shutdown, develop and pursue new skills, and effectively look for jobs during this difficult quarantine period.

Whether you’re still in school or a recent graduate, Beverly provides important information for those looking for jobs or professional development opportunities like internships. She also touches upon how students can (and should!) take advantage of campus resources like Career Services departments.

Tech San Diego would like to thank Beverly for joining us on the show. Major thanks to Andrew Sims at Hypable Impact for continuing to make us sound wonderful and ikoliks for the sweet opening and closing tracks.
