FAQs: Responding to the Current Health Crisis

A number of companies have cancelled internships, had layoffs, hiring freezes, etc. I am worried. Come July, the company might not have a job for me. Should I consider a graduate program? Is there something I should do besides worry? Would it be appropriate to email the company at a time like this and ask? What would that email look like?

I would like to reach out to Tufts alumni for career conversations, but I’m concerned that I’ll be bothering them in the midst of a stressful time. Any tips?

I secured an internship, but it was cancelled. Can I still list the information on my resume and/or cover letter?

I am an international student interested in a virtual internship. How should I proceed?
