Dear CW Student:
The death of George Floyd, the events of this past week and the sustained violence of systemic racism in the United States compel me to write today.
We know this is a hard time. We care about our students. We are listening and we are here for you.
We are committed to justice, an end to racism and all forms of oppression so people everywhere can be free and live their fullest potential.
Black Lives Matter.
With so many of us sheltering in place, video meetings, classes, appointments, and even social gatherings and worship have replaced face-to-face interactions. While these platforms (most frequently Zoom) are incredibly useful, prolonged time spent in front of the screen can have its problems. For example, it may leave us feeling empty and exhausted—physically and emotionally—especially because the brain has to work so much harder to process information. Sound familiar?
Job seeking is stressful under normal circumstances, but looking for a job during a global pandemic is even more so. It’s more important than ever to be aware of how hiring technology (think AI resume reviewers and online assessments) works and how to make it work for you so your application doesn’t get sorted into an automatic “no” pile.
