In mid-May, Pace University began offering its career services resources to students’ parents who have lost jobs. In addition to extending its career services, Pace University is providing supplies for front-line health care workers; sending volunteers to regional hospitals and medical centers; and marshaling its resources to assist those who need help.
“To lose a job in the middle of a pandemic – the team is heartbroken to think how overwhelmed some of our students’ families must feel now” said Phyllis Mooney, executive director of Career Services at Pace University. “This is where we can, and are happy to help, no matter what kind of job a Pace parent is looking for.”
Each year the department of Career Services brings more than 450 employers to its campuses through 12 career fairs and other networking events, connects students to companies in accounting, media and entertainment, nonprofits, health care, science and technology.
