New Course: CMM393 Crisis, Risk, and Disaster Communication

The Spring 2021 schedule of classes should release soon, and on it will be one new Communication class: CMM393 Crisis, Risk, and Disaster Communication, taught by Jack Harris.

Crisis, Risk, and Disaster Communication acquaints students with the fundamentals of crisis and disaster communication and focuses on the broader collaborative and stakeholder environment in which crisis and disaster communication takes place. Students will develop an understanding of the fundamentals of crisis and risk communication and the importance of stakeholder engagement and community collaboration for communicating about crisis, risk, and disaster. Dr. Harris is active in disaster planning, response, and recovery as co-chair of a county Community Organizations Active in Disaster collaboration (COAD), with a state VOAD, and as a member of a local emergency management planning council. His research and writing focuses on organizational resilience, long-term recovery after disaster, and cross-sector collaborations for solving complex public problems.

Check often to see when the Spring 2021 schedule of classes releases. Once it does, start making your desired schedule and set up a time to meet virtually with your advisor.

Networking For Internships in a Virtual World

Future interns, it is never too early to begin networking! Networking can open doors and reveal opportunities you would’ve never thought of. Since students are responsible for finding their own internships (and then getting them approved by Nancy Heiz before starting), networking is important so you can scout for the internship that best suits you. Don’t worry, networking is still possible in a virtual world!

How to Network Virtually

Virtual job fairs: One of the easiest ways to find internships and jobs that are looking to hire are at job/internship fairs, like the virtual one hosted by the Career Resource Center on Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For this job/internship fair, you need to register ahead. You can register here.

LinkedIn: Make a LinkedIn profile and connect with people you know. You can add employers and co-workers, friends, professors, etc. to grow your network of people. This is one of the best ways to connect with people in a professional setting.

@NPCareers Instagram: The Career Resource Center does weekly live videos on their Instagram. If you don’t know where to start networking, or what questions you should ask connections, watch their videos for helpful tips. All their past live videos are saved to their account, so you can go back and watch any of those.

We asked Nicole St. Onge, the liberal arts & sciences senior career specialist at the Career Resource Center, for her tips on networking in a virtual environment.

“In general, our website has a lot of different resources, including one on networking. One tip that I often recommend to students is making connections through informational interviews. Once a person has reached out to someone they’d like to have an informational interview with, they can start brainstorming some questions about the person’s field, their role and job duties, and the experiences that led them to where they are today. These interviews don’t have to only be with those in your major or field—it can be great to expand your network into other fields.

Finally, it’s often helpful to take the first step by talking to people you know! Your New Paltz network already includes professors, advisors, and peers; they can often be great connections or connect you with their own networks. If students have more specific questions about their own networking processes, the CRC is offering virtual appointments; we have a specialist for all of the schools within the College.”
