Click here to see the list of attending programs.
Last Chance for Senior Seminars!
Our initial round of Senior Seminars this year has been a success! If you were unable to make it to your major’s scheduled seminar time, there are make-up sessions available. On Monday, September 17th at 5:30pm or 6:45pm any Science senior can attend a session in the Faculty Dining Room and any Engineering senior can attend a session in the Heritage Room.
Caterpillar Ramps up Recruiting at Rose
Caterpillar has two events approaching that you might want to take advantage of. September 18th will be Caterpillar Day on campus! Caterpillar will have their show truck and engine on display near Speed Hall and at 6pm in the GM Room they will be holding an Information Session with pizza and refreshments. They will be discussing their full-time and intern opportunities. Additionally, Caterpillar will be hosting an on-site facility visit. Students are invited to visit the Caterpillar facility in Peoria, Illinois on Wednesday, September 26th. A bus will leave campus at 6am and return to campus at 6pm. If you are interested in going, please come sign up in the Career Services office.
Co-op Workshops Gear Up with Guest Speakers
Our first Co-op Workshops of the year will be Thursday, September 27th at 12:30pm and 5:30pm. If you know you want to participate in co-op at Rose, or if you just want more information, these sessions will be great ones to attend. Company representatives from General Electric and eON US will be attending to talk about the benefits of co-op and their company-specific programs. Visit our Workshop schedule for details on other co-op workshops that are scheduled.
If you have logged into eRecruiting in the last week, you will notice that you were prompted to update some of your profile information. We will be resetting this “speedbump” each quarter to help you keep yourself as up to date as possible. It is vital that you update your status (class standing) and other information in the system so that your resume can be sent to companies when they request resumes to identify potential candidates. One of the new profile features you may have noticed is “Job Intent”. This function allows you to tell us what you are looking for at this time, and will help us to include your resume in the proper resume referrals to companies.
Resumes, Resume Books and Resume Referrals
You’ve probably heard a lot of talk about the need to get your resume updated and uploaded into eRecruiting as soon as possible. Without having an updated resume in the system, you risk missing the opportunity to be seen and seriously considered by many companies. In the next two weeks, we will begin sending resume referrals to companies who are planning to attend the Fall Career Fair. Make sure your primary resume in the system is the most current one you have. Resume Referrals are our way of assisting you to gain exposure with interested companies. There have also been many questions about the Resume Books feature of eRecruiting. We do not use this feature of the system, so when you update your resume and profile, you do not have to worry about publishing it to a Resume Book.
Career Services Plans Open House
Mark Friday, September 28th on your calendar and make plans to visit Career Services during the hours of noon and 2pm. We will be having an Open House to showcase our services and show off our newly organized career library. We will also have our new practice interview system ready! While you are here, you can grab a quick snack and also enter to win one of two $50.00 gift certificates to the Bookstore!
