The University of Hartford’s incoming Class of 2021 will be put on the path to career-ready success before they take their first class. A new Office of Career Services program called “Career-On-Boarding Pre-First Semester,” will help incoming students set up LinkedIn profiles and create résumés before their first day of class.
Alex Young ’17 has discovered his passion—producing live sports events—thanks to the University of Hartford‘s new mobile sports studio. Alex and others are gaining hands-on experience broadcasting Hartford lacrosse games live on ESPN 3. “Because of this training, there are so many places I can go,” Alex says of his employment prospects. “We now know how to work in a live broadcast format. It opens up the floodgates for job opportunities and gives us an edge in the job search process.”
At the University of Hartford, giving back is a big part of who we are. Perhaps nowhere is this more apparent than the annual Hawks Helping Hartford Day of Service. More than 1,000 students have spent a day volunteering in city neighborhoods since the event began in 2011. This year, 50 alumni, many of whom graduated before Day of Service tradition began, also volunteered their time, spreading UHart’s sense of community throughout the United States and as far away as Uganda.
