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
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
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
4) TELL YOUR STORY
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.
