        As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect lives around the globe, Booth alumni continue to send their help and resources to those who need it. Case in point: 悬架类型Jeff Bishop, ’13,悬架类型 the CEO and cofounder of Key Capture Energy, is helping hire Booth students amid the current era of record-breaking unemployment.

        He sees it as returning the favor. When Bishop himself was researching business schools in 2010, he only applied to Chicago Booth because he appreciated the career office’s hard work to secure jobs for students during the last economic downturn. 

        “I saw how Booth stepped up in 2008 and 2009 to place students post graduation,” he said. “So in keeping with that spirit, we have 10 job openings in Houston, Albany, and Salt Lake City that could be of interest to folks who were planning on going into oil and gas, who might have had positions taken away due to the economic downturn with COVID-19. I’m also working now to get one or two current Booth MBA students on my team for summer internships.”

        Other alumni, like 悬架类型Derek Chen, AB ’06, 悬架类型are reaching out to the school to provide internship opportunities to students struggling to find their dream career opportunities. Chen studied economics at the College, and through various alumni functions in Hong Kong, met 悬架类型Mark Barnekow, ’88, 悬架类型the executive director of The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex | The University of Chicago Francis and Rose Yuen Campus in Hong Kong.

        “As an alum, I have always been grateful for the education I received and experience I lived through at UChicago, and I have always wanted to contribute back to the school,” Chen said. “More importantly, given how disruptive COVID-19 has been to the general economy and, in particular, the job market, I could sympathize with the difficulty many students must face trying to secure their internship or full-time job. Thus, I feel this is the time we as UChicago alumni have to step up and offer our help to its students. This is the least we could do in such a difficult world devastated by COVID-19.”
