Middlebury in DC Mentorship Program
New this year: the Middlebury DC mentorship program is now open to all Middlebury students, regardless of your summer internship status or place of residence. All interested students are encouraged to apply soon as space is limited.

- The flexible structure of the mentorship program allows you to take part in one-on-one meetings with your assigned mentor to learn further about your chosen industry and the realities of professional life in DC. Mentors will be able to provide advice and insight regarding their time at Middlebury, successes in their careers, and be useful points of contact for future opportunities.
- This DC specific networking opportunity is perfect for you if you have found your summer dramatically altered by the Covid-19 pandemic. Welcoming all Middlebury students, the program will be conducted remotely and allow you to explore your career interests even if you do not have an internship.

Friendly reminder about good email etiquette when networking
As you reach out to alumni and other individuals to conduct informational interviews, please keep the following tips in mind in order to have the most successful interactions:
- Spell names correctly. It sounds obvious, but this can really get the conversation off on the wrong foot from the beginning. Pay close attention to this detail.
- Do not use two different fonts in an email. It makes it really clear you’re just copy-pasting from other outreach notes.
- Offer your availability in reasonable blocks of time, for example 1-2 hour windows on 2-3 different days and allow the person to choose. Presume they are busier than you, and make it really easy for them to pick a time. Providing a link to your online calendar and requesting they go in and book the meeting themselves may not be preferred.
- Know how to set up a calendar meeting in whatever program you use (outlook, gmail, etc). Don’t just rely on the email to act as the final confirmation, get it on the calendar.
- When sending the meeting invite, only use 20 or 30 minutes, not 1 hour. That is too long.
- It’s usually best to offer to call them and ask for their best number. Put this into the calendar invite, so at the designated time, no one is wondering who is going to call whom.
- Zoom is very popular, but also consider learning how to use Microsoft Teams.

The state of the Global Job Market in COVID-19
“COVID-19 has affected every industry in every corner of the globe. For some—like healthcare, e-commerce, education, and tech—it’s growth. For most, this time is clouded with unemployment, hiring freezes, and even business closures. It’s a good time to be in some industries and a challenging time for others.
We wanted to take our own deep dive into the state of hiring during COVID-19. So, we asked you to help us keep tabs on hiring freezes. Now, we have a completely user-generated list of companies that are hiring, freezing, rescinding offers, and even furloughing.
And we didn’t stop there. We teamed up with the folks at Clearbit to enrich the data further, surveying more than 7,000 companies to find out who’s doing what, where, and why. Here’s what we found.”
