Career FAQ's for Students (COVID-19)
We are committed to keeping you safe, healthy, informed and connected to our services during this challenging time. As part of the University’s response to the impact of COVID-19, Hiatt has transitioned to a virtual office; meaning that all appointments will be conducted via phone or on a video-based platform like Zoom or Skype and in-person career events have moved to an online format for the time being.
COVID-19 Operations Update (1/19/21): We are committed to keeping you safe, healthy, informed and connected to our services during this challenging time.
