Professional Summary

Mr. Bau serves as the embedded Career Consultant for the School Engineering from the UConn Center for Career Development. With nearly 20 years of experience in technology staffing and higher education, John seeks to build bridges between industry partners and UConn students in ways that can benefit both. John coaches students in communication-oriented skills to complement their technical classroom experiences to help prepare them for the workplace. Networking is a specific interest, and he is an avid proponent for professional use of social media, such as LinkedIn, in the job search. He can assist employers in developing campus branding and recruiting strategies to help them reach the right students at the right time to meet their staffing goals – in both engineering and non-technical roles.
