To Our Valued Employer Partners,
Due to the ever-evolving COVID 19 situation, Lafayette College has enacted temporary measures to protect the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. The college has enacted a remote work policy for all until further notice. This includes student class instruction for the duration of the semester. Please know that we will communicate any updates and decisions as necessitated by the severity of the virus. For more information on how the College is responding to the spread of COVID-19 visit https://covid19.lafayette.edu/
During this time, the Gateway Career Center is fully operational and we are here to assist you with your recruiting needs. Employers who had on campus engagements scheduled will be or have been contacted to make necessary adjustments required either to reschedule for a later date or to move forward in a virtual platform.
For employers who are actively engaged with job postings, resume collections and interview scheduling we are taking this opportunity to communicate protocols moving forward.
▪ Interviews (Internship and/or Full Time): In the case of interviewing, prior to the reopening of campus, we do ask that you consider giving students the opportunity for a virtual or phone interview experience over an in person interview at your location. This request is being made as students are taking classes remotely from home, and therefore, many will be challenged in making arrangements for needed transportation to visit your location.
▪ Job Postings (Internship and/or Full Time): For job postings and resume collection please continue to operate as you traditionally have. Our Gateway Career Center jobs board is fully operational and available to students who are seeking summer internships as well as entry-level positions upon graduation.
▪ Schedule Changes: Due to the current situation should you find that you are making changes to your recruiting schedules please notify us so that we can assist you with communication to our students and faculty.
▪ Virtual Technology: Virtual/webinar information sessions can also be supported and scheduled through Gateway Career Center. We are actively seeking opportunities to schedule employer engagements.
We at Gateway are looking forward to working with you to ensure that the spring recruiting season is successful.
In closing, we would like to thank you for your continued commitment to Lafayette students.
Best Regards from the Gateway Employer Relations Team,
Rochelle, Dominique, Holly and Alexis
