During the past few months, the college media team has been working on producing a podcast series called The College Handoff. With COVID-19 affecting events such as Career Night and the Speed Luncheon, we approached this podcast as a COVID-friendly alternative to those in-person events. Podcast guests are interviewed about their career fields, recruiters give resume and interview advice for students, and we have some fun “get to know you” segments as well. This project also functions as mentored learning experiences for student employees as they cannot receive this type of opportunity and knowledge from their School of Communications classes.
The first episode was published today (8/25) on Spotify, with Apple Podcasts and other streaming apps to follow as soon as tomorrow. If you are new to podcasts, we recommend installing either the free version of Spotify or PodBean and search for the 22-minute show.
