Keep your plant alive first. :)
I started a garden, got into a home workout routine, and playing disc golf a couple times a week. Also found a great book series.

00:47:07Kari Scott - FSU
How has the comfort level of your student employees been working front desks, etc?
00:50:09Rahul Rajan - Minnesota
Student staff have been super excited to be back but definitely did not appreciate 3 hr safety training before we opened haha
00:50:33Kari Scott - FSU
Do you conduct safety training online or in person?
00:50:58Drake Belt he/him/his (UArizona)
we will be doing our safety training virtually when we reopen
00:51:00Rahul Rajan - Minnesota
We have a zoom meeting with all students and small group in person training
00:51:41Kari Scott - FSU
We are planning to do it virtually as well. Worried about how productive it will be and how it will translate when they have to adjust to the procedures irl
00:52:50Rahul Rajan - Minnesota
I was actually surprised the amount of students who attended our zoom meeting. We made interactive and made sure all the pro staff attended the meeting as well so students felt little more comfortable
We're doing safety training in person at Arizona State in accordance with ARC guidelines and with classes capped at 9 students
Kari, at UT Austin we did ours online and made them keep their cameras on so we know they are actually there! We also have been doing facility walk throughs with 6 students in each group and reviewing what we went over online to make sure they understand
00:57:00Drake Belt he/him/his (UArizona)
we are doing similar to Minnesota but are closed currently
01:00:00Gregory Tack (He/Him/His) - Quinnipiac University
How do you update resumes?
01:00:47Drake Belt he/him/his (UArizona)
Keep a master resume that you add to every time you have a new position, and track every job/opportunity that you have, and then edit your resume for specific positions
01:01:52Kari Scott - FSU
@gregory, I have a master resume where I have everythingggg I've done. Then only include things that matter when applying to jobs.
Young Donor Contact ^^^
It's an awesome opportunity.
01:02:30Kari Scott - FSU
@gregory, also I have a resume additions doc where I just bullet point different things that I do so I don't forget and then when I'm ready to put it in my resume I can spend time formatting
01:02:35Gregory Tack (He/Him/His) - Quinnipiac University
Follow-up: what is an appropriate length for a resume?
I’ve heard that length depends on the field. Campus rec/higher education, it’s usually okay to have something a little longer (3-4 pages)
01:04:06Kari Scott - FSU
Also depends on how long you've been a pro - in field longer, longer length usually
01:05:35Rahul Rajan - Minnesota
Personally I feel cover letters are the more important than resumes. Resume length gets bigger with experience
01:05:52Drake Belt he/him/his (UArizona)
When you write: Who, what, when, where, why, how, and how many
01:06:16Gregory Tack (He/Him/His) - Quinnipiac University
thank you so much!!

When is it best to start looking for jobs? Does that change with COVID?
01:07:56Drake Belt he/him/his (UArizona)
Traditional search time: January-NIRSA Annual
01:08:14Drake Belt he/him/his (UArizona)
Apply to anything that excites you as soon as it posts though
According to Bluefish, we get the most posts at the beginning of the year. But I think things will change quite a bit with COVID; when people get back onto campus and their budgets open up, posts should go up.
