Lincoln College remains closed due to the continued concern of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Despite the physical closure of campus buildings, Lincoln College’s Career Services has continued offering services and support to students, alumni, and community members.
Lincoln College Career Services is still working, connecting, and supporting individuals in their pursuit of employment. “During the current pandemic, many hard-working individuals have been displaced as a result of furloughs, reduced hours, or position elimination. It is our desire to continue to assist professionals and students in building their careers,” said Richard Johnson, Director of Career Services at Lincoln College.
The Career Services department offers a myriad of opportunities including improving interviewing skills, resume and cover letter support, Linked-In profile building, and networking assistance to job-seekers. “We are providing all necessary resources to assist with the career exploration process,” added Johnson.
Most recently, Career Services is developing the first Future Think Career Lab, pioneering the career service field to adapt to the demand for automation, robotics, artificial intelligence, and other new technologies. The focus is to inspire students to create jobs, rather than seek them. The career-focused collaborative learning lab will include state-of-the-art equipment including 3D printers, virtual reality gaming systems, and drones. Students will engage in experiential processes that enhance their creative intelligence. Developing relationships with innovation centers across the country, Lincoln College’s Future Think Career Lab hopes to maximize student exposure to career opportunities through interviews with technologically advanced companies.
