Networking, Video Interviewing, and Job Hunting in the New Virtual Norm with Career Connections


The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many businesses and industries in the past few months and working virtually has become the new normal. For many working professionals this is an adjusting experience, and for students and new grads looking to enter the workforce this can feel like a struggle. 

However, as our TE Talks guest Trevor Buttram puts it: “There’s a lot of doom and gloom in the world out there but there’s also a lot of positive. So, keep your eye on the prize in terms of your career path, keep making those virtual connections, and continue to hone all of the tools that you have to support your job search process.”

On May 6, 2020, Trevor, Program Manager at the Insurance Institute, joined us remotely on #TETalks to share how the insurance industry has adapted to the new norm, and how students and new grads can:

  • Explore a career and opportunities in the insurance industry from home
  • Network effectively and virtually with insurance professionals and keep connections alive during this crucial time
  • Prep your resume, hone your skills and keep an active online professional presence so you are ready to go when the economy recovers
  • Navigate the art of video interviewing and keep job searching
  • And More!
