Getting Hired Now - Employer Panel Q&A



By Stuart Esrock, Ph.D.

The UofL University Career Center (UCC) will host a Q&A discussion forum with major employers to offer students tips on getting ready for the job market in the midst of the global pandemic. The “Getting Hired Now” virtual event will take place on Wednesday, July 15, 12 noon to 1 pm.  

Panelists include Aidan Keenan from Kroger and Brittany Mecham from UPS.  The associate director of the UCC, Donna Lee, said students who take part in the Q&A will find out that despite the COVID-19 crisis, employers still have hiring needs.  “As companies continue to pivot with rapid agility in response to coronavirus, they are making every effort to build better bridges of communicating with students to ensure an even more successful transition from college to career. And, they are also doing a better job of training managers to onboard new hires.”

Students are encouraged during the Q&A to submit their questions for the panelists. The event will be held in MS Teams. To take part in the event on July 15, click on this link:  Attendees are reminded to mute microphones.
