Due to Covid-19, the UNM-Taos family is doing everything possible to keep us all safe.  Social distancing and limiting travel is recommended by the CDC to bring the infection curve down.  That being said I would like to make you aware of the following changes being implemented out of an abundance of caution. 


  • Career Services will not be making any face to face appointments for the next 6 weeks 
  • Please communicate via email, phone and text with Career Services to set up an appointment 
  • Appointments/meetings will be conducted electronically by FaceTime, Skype, Zoom (and other methods as appropriate). 
  • Kindly send your resume/cover letter by email to begin working with career services. 
  • Remote hours of operation shall be Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm 


Of course, this is subject to change as we are getting new information continuously.  Please continue to monitor your lobomail! 


Lastly, please be safe during this trying time.  I look forward to seeing you all on campus again soon.
