Welcome employers - We are still here to serve you virtually!

Service Announcement Regarding Temporary Campus Closure

In accordance with the University System of Maryland’s directive to temporarily suspend in-person services due to the COVID-19 outbreak, USG’s Career & Internship Services Center (CISC) is currently closed for all in-person services. During this closure, our physical Center will be closed and all in-person programming, events, and activities will be canceled.  CISC will, however, continue to provide select, priority services and resources to students and employers in a virtual format during operating hours. CISC will also continue to provide employer services via phone, email, or WebEx.  These services include, but are not limited to, registration for CISC’s Career Connector; posting of employment, experiential learning, or volunteer opportunities; assistance with candidate recruitment and referrals; and brand development among the USG student community.
