The Prizes: A GPS Unit, 10 free Subway lunches, 10 free Rose-Hulman dress shirts.

Networking Opportunity with Rockwell Collins
Mike Birbiglia is performing for a sold our Performing Arts show next Wednesday, September 16th. Whether or not you were able to get a ticket, you are invited to attend a networking event before the show from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on the Hatfield Lawn. Rockwell Collins is sponsoring the Birbiglia show and recruiters will be hanging out with us before hand with the hope that they would meet some good student talent. We’ll be serving free food and giving away prizes, so come ready to mix and mingle! Rockwell Collins will also have information about EE, CPE, CS, SE and EMGT internships and full-time work. You don’t want to miss this event!
A Invaluable Tool: Peer Advisors
We have 4 students that we think you ought to know: our 2009-2010 Peer Advisors! These are upperclass students that have excellent work experiences and have been hired specifically to assist other students by providing career-related mentoring and advice. Check their page of the website to see when they’re working and drop by. They have evening hours and will soon start popping up in other locations around campus, offering to review resumes and talk about searching for jobs. They’re trained to use eRecruiting and Linked In, and will be doing great outreach events this year! In fact, watch for an Outreach program the last week of this month!

What Did You Do This Summer?
Our office is in the process of compiling photo galleries of our students at work, and we need your help! If you took pictures during your summer internship or research experience, or during your co-op assignment, please share them with us! We would love to see pictures of you at work, or around your work environment. Please be sure that it is okay to share pictures of your employer’s work space, and then email Charity Mouck at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your pictures with us. Once we have a few more albums, we will link them on our website so that everyone can see all of the different work experiences that our students participate in.
ASME & IEEE College Resume Workshops
ASME Central Indiana Section, and IEEE Central Indiana Section have partnered to present a series of resume workshops as outreach events at Indiana Colleges during the month of September. This unique opportunity pairs high potential students with area professionals for one-on-one mentoring with respect to resume preparation, job searching tactics, and interviewing skills. ASME and IEEE believe that this experience will prove invaluable to students in today’s tighter job market. Resumes are due TODAY, and the Rose-Hulman Workshop is in E104 on September 15th at 6:00pm. For more details, check the job listing under Career Services in eRecruiting (search us as an employer) or visit http://www.asme-cis.org.
