COVID-19 Updates

Special Message…

Due to the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Career and Professional Development Center would like to share updates with you regarding the availability of CPDC services during this time. Our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our students, employers, and staff. Thus, we are instituting the following until futher notice:

•    All employer-related events will be conducted virtually
•    If you have any FAMU students serving in an intern or co-op role at your location, please be sure to update them on your operating status and guidelines. We have encouraged students to discuss concerns directly with their instructors and supervisors.

We encourage you to continue to stay connected with our students by utilizing Handshake to post your job and internship opportunities. You can also use the events and interview features within Handshake to continue your recruiting efforts by hosting virtual events and interviews. Should you need assistance with this process, please feel free to contact us. For additional information and details regarding the University’s operations, please visit our website at
