This is without a doubt a unique time to be graduating. You are heading into a work environment that looks much different than just six months ago. With so much uncertainty out there, we have asked friends of UConn (alumni, recruiters who cultivate UConn talent, and more) to share their experience and give some advice and perspective. This is a part of our “Advice and Perspective from Friends of UConn” series. Recordings of previous sessions can be found on our website.
