Blog: Moving Up While Sheltering in Place

When we’re on the other side of this, what do you want to have achieved? Use these resources to prepare for the unique professional challenges that lay ahead. Here's what to do if you’re in the middle of your job search, working remotely, getting ready for a video interview, or laid off.

Resource: Covid-friendly & remote job and internship List

For now, your job search may be harder, but continuing your search with patience and persistence is crucial. This is not the time to lose momentum. No matter what the news says, don’t stop applying. Here are a few leads of where to look.


As of March 20, per California Governor Newsom’s Statewide Shelter-In-Place order, no one should be physically reporting to an internship site in California.  Student interns do not fall in the category of “essential personnel.”

The Office of Career and Professional Development and Office of the Provost worked together to find the solutions for student internship courses. While 60% of students are able to work remotely, 40% are unable to complete their internships.
Chapman has provided students with flexible academic completion options as follows:
  1. Complete regular internship hours/responsibilities as planned, remotelyfollowing standard Spring 2020 Internship Calendar deadlines and requirements 
  2. Complete Internship Alternative assignment(s)/project(s) this Spring 2020, to be determined by the Faculty Internship Advisor
  3. Request an Incomplete (I), with the hours to be completed at a later time when the situation has changed 
  4. Choose to reduce the academic credit/s earned* for their Spring 2020 internship to accommodate only those hours already completed  
  5. Withdraw (W)*from the internship course  
* Reducing the number of credit hours earned or withdrawing from a Spring 2020 internship should not be done if it jeopardizes progress towards a student’s degree, or reduces hours below full-time status.  This is an important consideration for students on financial aid, veterans' benefits, scholarships, or are international students on visas.  Before taking these steps, please tell your student to contact the appropriate office (financial aid, VA, international student advisor) to ensure they are not jeopardizing their status in these areas.
