End of another year

Filed in From the Staff by on April 26, 2012 0 Comments

Last night I finally put some time aside, dressed accordingly and began interview stream. After making sure I understood how the program worked, I received the first question and of course wasn’t sure how to answer it. Although I told myself I wouldn’t, I responded so poorly, I selected the option to redo the initial […]

Exploring LinkedIn

Unfortunately the CDC trivia round was delayed one more week as quadfest took precedence. But if you already reviewed the CDC’s resources don’t be discouraged, they will be asked next week. And if you don’t have a job yet, don’t forget to attend “Last Minute Job Search Strategies”, as it’s not too late to get […]

I hope all you readers will be attending the Goats Head Trivia next week. If you know your CDC resources, you should be able to get a lead in the game. The CDC round will include questions regarding services we provide as well as reminding students about opportunities such as InterviewStream. I have yet to try […]

Scouring LinkedIn

Filed in From the Staff by on April 5, 2012 0 Comments

I have been scouring LinkedIn more than I usually do for the last week. I have always heard it’s great for networking, but I am just starting to learn what that means. Beyond “connecting” to everyone you know like Facebook, there is a lot of useful information available. Groups relevant to your major, industry, or […]

The Life Sciences Fair

Filed in From the Staff by on March 28, 2012 0 Comments

The last career fair of the year has passed. I found it interesting that Life Sciences and Bioengineering Companies recruit later than most; that is why we have a separate career fair for them. I hope if you’re under that category you went as I encouraged all my bio friends to attend the fair. But […]

Returning to Work

Filed in From the Staff by on March 20, 2012 0 Comments

I am quite excited about returning to my pervious internship this summer. The section of the company I work for is fairly new and smaller which grants me more responsibility within the company. My tasks are bigger and contributions therefore larger to final project, allowing me to have my own design projects and challenge myself […]

Hope your spring break was fun and relaxing, maybe you even applied to some jobs. I must confess that I wasn’t as productive as I hoped to be and enjoyed the work free week. We’re in our last term of the year and if you still haven’t gotten a summer job yet, don’t give up […]

Spring Break

C term is finally coming to an end and although I am ready for vacation, I won’t be spending the whole time relaxing. Last year I spent this time job hunting. Although I already have a job this year, I will be finishing my application to graduate school. Don’t get me wrong, I will most […]

Keeping things up to date

Filed in From the Staff by on February 24, 2012 0 Comments

I was really impressed with the number of employers at the career fair. Remember there are over 170 employers, too many to fit in one building, therefore your chances for getting this year job are the best they have even been! Remember to keep in contact with employers so they remember you as there were […]

Ready for the Career Fair?

I have already accepted an internship for this summer so I will not be actively participating in the job search, but I will be working at it. If you don’t have a job yet, I highly encourage you to go. Even as a freshman, just to check it out and perhaps get some freebies. This […]
