2) Skill Building Sites

Skill Building Sites

Although hiring by employers seems uncertain, this is a great time to develop skills to increase your marketability. After you complete an online course you can then take a skill assessment on Linkedin and if you pass you can highlight that skill on your profile! This helps recruiters see that you are proficient in the skills that you list on your Linkedin profile!

Some of the best places to look for online courses are:

LinkedIn Learning: Free for UC Berkeley Students

Alison.com

CodeAcademy

HubSpot Academy

Living Documents for Hiring/Job Freezes 

Lists are being created online where people are gathering information about exactly which companies are continuing or discontinuing their internship programs. One of these lists is on GitHub titled 2020 Internship Status – COVID-19. Candor has a list as well titled Who’s freezing hiring from coronavirus. Use your due diligence when making decisions based on these lists and reach out directly to companies to get up to date information on the status of their internship programs.
