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.
eRecruiting Update Time!
It’s the start of a new quarter, so that means it is time for you to update yourself in eRecruiting! Freshmen will learn more about eRecruiting and how we use it in their College & Life Skills class, but everyone else should be logging in as soon as possible to upload a new resume and update their profile. Pay special attention to your GPA, class status, job intent and date of graduation. Companies already have jobs in the system that you can apply for, and September already has info sessions and events planned for you to attend!
