Announcements
We are happy to announce that Katy Ross has joined the Career Development team! Many of you know Katy from her role in recruiting at SI. She is now transitioning into a new role at the school which will consist of her providing career and internship search advising with first year students, as well as helping to coordinate Alternative Spring Break while Kelly Kowatch is out on maternity leave.

Katy will start offering resume reviews and internship advising appointments soon. Watch for that announcement, and make an appointment to see her in the coming weeks by emailing katross@umich.edu.

***
Just a reminder that for MSI students who have secured an internship for Fall 2011 and would like to receive credit for the experience, the deadline to request credit is Friday, September 30. Students can read more about gaining academic credit for their Internship experience at this link and also submit their request for credit. Note that first term MSI students are not eligible to receive credit for internships.

International Internship Search Panel
Tuesday, September 20
Noon - 1:00 pm

SI 681 Career Development Seminar
Wednesday, September 21
Thursday, September 22
Monday, September 26
Noon - 2:00 pm
2435 North Quad

All students who receive Fall 2011 SI 681 PEP credits are required to attend to attend a SI 681 Career Development Seminar.

You do not need to prepare for your seminar attendance except to print out your reflections from the ePortfolio system (not the public portfolio) and read them over before you come. Be prepared to discuss your reflections. Refreshments and snacks will be served.

Due to the large number of students who participated in internships this past summer and the extreme time commitment that it takes to coordinate and attend the presentations for the SI-CDO, we decided to instead have students create LinkedIn profiles and develop a single slide that you will add to your public portfolio. The details of these two requirements will be outlined in the seminar.
