UW-Stout COVID Update

Q: Currently, rates of infection are low? Why do I need to keep testing
A: 
Our low numbers of positive cases speak to the tremendous efforts of the entire community to follow our safety protocols, which include our testing program. In order to maintain our low numbers, everyone needs to remain vigilant regarding testing and safety protocols so we can finish the semester strong.

Q: When can I begin to register for summer 2021 courses?
A: Summer session registration begins March 10. Advisement Day is March 23 and Fall 2021 registration starts March 24 for graduate students and March 29 for undergraduates. Please contact your advisor if you have any questions regarding upcoming offerings and register as soon as possible. Your timely registration helps with our planning efforts.

Q: I’m nervous about not being able to find a co-op or internship this summer due to COVID-19, and it’s required for my major. What are my options?
A: Please reach out to the Office of Career Services for assistance. They have career counselors on staff who can work with you to prepare for the search process and identify opportunities. They have many tools and resources available for students across all majors. Despite the pandemic, many employers are still seeking to hire students for in-person and virtual positions. They are ready and poised to assist you with resume writing, interviewing preparation, and a successful search.

Career Ready Wednesday
4 Tips to Virtual Interviewing
  1. Test your technology
    1. Test your internet connection, your device's camera and the audio quality of your microphone.
    2. Don’t panic if the video cuts off or the audio stops working. Take the interviewer’s phone number beforehand. It will come in handy if you find yourself in this situation. Call them immediately if a glitch surfaces, and ask them if they want to reschedule the interview or if they want to continue the call.
  2. Set up your environment
    1. Check the background that the recruiter will be seeing on the call. The best scenario would be a blank wall, or you can move a bookshelf right behind you if possible! It will make you look so much more professional. If that’s not possible, do ensure that your background is neat. An unmade bed or a cluttered background will leave a very bad impression.
  3. Dress Professionally
    1. Dress the same way you would for an in-person interview. Even though you might feel like you're lounging at home during the interview, do not make the mistake of appearing unprofessional.
  4. Practice, Practice, Practice!
    1. Research the company and keep your resume handy.
    2. Practice in Interview Stream
      1. Learn how to use Interview Stream
