Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends,

The coronavirus pandemic has affected the daily rhythm for all of us. For some, it is impacting their livelihood. Whether a job loss, a furlough, or financial pressures on small businesses, we pray for all of you who have been or may be affected. For others, perhaps the changing landscape has caused you to pause and consider your future aspirations. Wherever you are at this moment, the Alumni Association has resources to assist you.

On ThinkND, our Clear-Sighted Career series features more than 25 video webinars on topics such as writing standout resumes and cover letters, networking, and interviewing with confidence. On our website, you can find thorough checklists and step-by-step guides for maximizing your LinkedIn profile, effectively communicating your personal brand, and boosting your resume.

This is also a challenging time for our students, and in particular, members of the Class of 2020. The Meruelo Family Center for Career Development is welcoming assistance from members of the ND family who are interested in supporting our students’ career and professional aspirations in the weeks and months ahead.

Be assured of our continued prayers for you and the entire Notre Dame family.

Yours in Notre Dame,
Dolly Duffy ’84
