Salutations Hackers and Career Enthusiasts!

Hope work, research, and exams are going (or went) well! Just some news and
a few updates to keep everyone active.


    1. Danielle ([log in to unmask]), the liaison from Career Services for
    CEMS, and I had the opportunity to meet and discuss some important  issues
    regarding strategies to improve career outreach within the department of
    computer science.
       1. First, Danielle, here is the information I promised you:

             - Point of interest: Last entry of the survey:
                - *Year 4 Seminar.* A senior seminar which discusses future
                employment opportunities, talks by guest speakers from
local companies, and
                help with resume construction.
                - Questions about survey results can be brought to Mek
                (Michael E. Karpeles - [log in to unmask]) or Munk (Alex

          2. The Discussion
          - Having some CSSA Tech Talks for potential job openings
          - When companies post job offers, have them come and give a short
             talk about the position
             - Having a website of job listings BY major
          - Having a bi-monthy resume building workshop
          - Coordinate with VAGUE (Vermont Area Group of Unix Enthusiasts) to
          find speakers or job openings
          3. Did you know?
       - Danielle is in her office on Wednesdays (in Votey instead of L&L) to
          help people out with Career Services?
