I always appreciate when programs send me material outside of what I routinely post about. So you can imagine how pleased I was when the University of Virginia Masters in Commerce program emailed me a recent podcast they did. This interview is with Tom Fitch, Associate Dean of Commerce Career Services, and Matt Moore, a 2009 graduate of the MS in Commerce program. He is currently a Managing Director of SearchOne Advisors in New York and the topic of discussion is how COVID has changed the recruiting landscape, how students can prepare themselves for a job or internship search, and why networking is even more important than ever. Talk about a relevant and timely subject matter.
Hope you enjoy this. I gave it a listen and really found some of the insights and advice to be helpful. I think all of us know the value and importance of networking, but it is a skill and lesson that needs to be reinforced.
Keep checking back for more information on this program. I should have another update for all of you relatively soon.
