GECD new digital career toolsIn anticipation of the MIT Fall Career Fair, MIT's Global Education and Career Development (GECD) rolled out new websites and online tools to help MIT students prepare. In addition to re-writing and re-organzing much of content on the rebooted GECD website, GECD has launched a sister site called CareerBridgeLink (or CBLink). CBLink serves as the new front face of MIT's career database, CareerBridge, where students search for jobs and internships posted by companies recruiting on campus. 

On CBLink, new job opportunities for MIT students can be featured, and companies can post videos about their work culture and current projects. The new site offers a place to see which postings are fresh, learn more about industries and companies, and sign up for alerts about new opportunities.

GECD also offers a handful of online career tools for MIT students to research and practice career skills. Their newest, InterviewStream, lets students use a webcam to record themselves answering common interview questions. GECD's website has more information on how students can prepare for the MIT Fall Career Fair.
