Ways Alumni Can Support MIT Sloan Students During COVID-19

Professor Roberto Rigobon’s message to the MIT Sloan community is a powerful reminder of the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, and the steps we need to take to help those in our community.  Here are 5 ways you can give back and support the MIT Sloan community.

1) POST A JOB OR INTERNSHIP

Post a Job – Full-time, Internship, and Experienced Hire

Does your company have jobs or internships? Post a job for free through the CDO.

In today’s climate, companies need candidates who can solve complex problems and leverage deep finance knowledge and analytical skills. MIT Sloan’s portfolio of programs offers the range of expertise and experience companies need, from early- to mid-career and experienced hires, across our MBA, LGO, MFin, MBAn, MSMS, SFMBA, and EMBA programs, as well as alumni.

 

2) SHARE YOUR EXPERTISE

Share Your Knowledge and Experience on MIT Alumni Advisors Hub

Volunteer on MIT Alumni Advisors Hub to support students navigating the spring 2020 job and internship search.  MIT Sloan students have expressed particular interest in those who have managed their job search and career during similar periods of economic uncertainty, like recessions.

 

3) SCHEDULE A VIRTUAL RECRUITING EVENT AT MIT SLOAN

Host Virtual Company Coffee Chats

The CDO is coordinating Virtual Coffee Chats this spring, for companies that want to connect with MIT Sloan students to discuss opportunities.  To participate, email the Employer Relations & Recruiting Team at cdo.mitsloan@mit.edu.

 

4) TELL YOUR STORY

Share Your Career Story on Your CDO’s Alumni Blogs

Have you overcome obstacles, navigated unexpected career shifts, and identified opportunities in uncertain times and want to inspire other Sloanies to success? Email MITSloanCareerStories@mit.edu to share your story.

 

5) PARTICIPATE AS SPEAKERS, PANELISTS, AND ATTENDEES

Many centers across MIT and MIT Sloan – as well as MIT Sloan student clubs and alumni clubs – are hosting online events to keep the community connected and informed about the job market, and to support students managing their careers during this challenging time. We encourage you to participate and keep in touch with the MIT Sloan community, including your local alumni club.
