AGLS student FAQs
What do I do about advising or if I have questions about my classes?
Your academic advisor is still available to assist you during this time! Please access our advising contact page for their email address to reach out to them about times to meet via Zoom or the phone.
What about my international experience (study abroad, field trip) ?
Texas A&M’s Education Abroad Office is the point of contact for all international activities involving students. They provide updates related to travel and programming on their “Coronavirus Updates” page. As for future activities or answers specific to your situation, you will need to contact their office for more information.
What can I do about upcoming internship plans or career options?
If you’re seeking an internship or full-time position or if you have something already secured, remember that these are unprecedented times. Everyone is in a state of adjustment and businesses are no different.
If you’re seeking an internship or full-time position:
- Upload a current resume into HireAggies. The Career Center is contacting employers to ask if they would like to receive a resume book of students qualified for their positions.
- Opt in to be included in a resume book by going to “My Account / Academic”. Scroll to the Terms & Conditions section and make sure your initials show in the “Consent to Release Records” field.
If you’ve secured an internship or full-time position:
- Keep the lines of communication open. Be proactive and contact your recruiter or human resources representative to make sure they know how to reach you should the need arise.
In any case, continue to partner with the Career Center for your job search. Check careercenter.tamu.edu for resources and workshops to help you remain competitive in this virtual recruiting landscape. If you have questions, please email a Career Center advisor.
