HAVE A GREAT BREAK!
Nov. 21, 2008
New Peer Advisor Hours Start After Break
Career Services is pleased to announce the official launch of our Peer Advisor program! Starting the week after Thanksgiving Break, you will be able to stop by our office and not only visit with our full-time staff, but also our new Peer Advisor (PA)! This is a brand new program that we are piloting this year with the hope of launching a full team of PAs for next year. Our first PA is Senior ME Patrick Klesmith and you can visit our website for more information about him and this great new program!
Patrick’s Winter Office Hours:
Mondays: 10am - 11:30am and 3:30pm - 5:15pm
Tuesdays: 5:15pm - 7:00pm
Thursdays: 5:15pm - 7:00pm
Fridays: 2:30pm - 5:15pm
Student Website Gets a Slight Facelift
With the addition of links for our new Peer Advisor program and information about our upcoming Alumni Mentoring Program, the student page of our website has had a few slight changes. Take a few minutes to look around and see what is new! If you have trouble finding anything, please let us know!
Seniors: Update Your Status With Us!
In the past few weeks, all seniors should have gotten an email from someone in our office checking in to see what their post-graduation plans are. Please be sure to respond to us and let us know if you are planning on graduate school, entering the military or searching for a full-time job. This information helps us help you as you plan to leave at the end of the year. Also, if you have received job offers and have not yet reported them, please considering doing so. The information you submit is kept confidential and only used to update your student file and to create aggregate data on salaries.
Logo Contest for AMP ends TODAY!
Calling all student graphic designers! Career Services and the Student Alumni Association will be rolling out a new Alumni Mentoring Program during the Winter Quarter in an effort to link up current students with alumni. The program will be titled AMP (Alumni Mentoring Program) and we are in need of a logo! A panel of staff judges will select three finalists and a winner will then be selected. The designer of the winning logo will receive a $50 gift card to the bookstore and the two runner-ups will receive a $25 gift card to the bookstore. For more info and complete details, visit our website!
Winter Career Fair – January 28th
With the Fall Career Fair not too far gone in our memories, we are already looking forward to the Winter Career Fair on January 28th. We already have 50 companies registered to attend, with half already confirmed and on our website. The other half are being added as they are confirmed. Start planning now to attend this event!
Vault Online Career Library: Message Boards
In this issue we want to highlight an interesting part of the Vault Online Career Library. Once you log into Vault, you will see a tab along the top toolbar that takes you to the Message Board section of the site. Once there, you can search for a company and see if they have a message board. You can post questions to these boards and also browse past questions that have been submitted. Depending on how large the company is, there may not be a lot of activity on their board, but don’t be afraid to start a new discussion! There are also message boards specifically for certain industries, and also for folks looking to get their MBA or go to Law School. These boards are more active and might be a good place to start doing some research!
Career Services Resource: Graduate School Guide
For those of you that know graduate school is in your future, you need to make a plan and start preparing early. Part of that plan is knowing which schools offer which programs. And once you know that, you need to begin doing research on schools that you are interested in. The Graduate School Guide, which also has a web presence, is available to any student to pick up for free in our office. We have quite a few copies, so feel free to come by and get one. We get a new edition every year, so be sure to check back next year as well. The guide not only indicates graduate programs by degree area, but also provides basic information about what different schools offer, including notes on lab space, library access and details about the programs offered. This is a great free resource to add to your collection!
