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 will be suspended or moving to an online format for the remainder of the academic year.
We understand you have many questions surrounding your life after Brandeis and how COVID-19 impacts your career plans. To help you navigate through this, our staff has answered some of the most frequently asked questions about our operations, applying to positions, working from home and more below. If you don’t see an answer to a question, let us know via email or send us a message on Facebook
Going forward, Hiatt will share updates on our website, social media channels and email to provide ongoing support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
