Job finding mistakes — Joyce’s Career Tip of the Week

Posted by on Mar 30, 2015 in Career | 0 comments

As the days are getting warmer and warmer, it’s a sure sign that summer is not very far away. If you are a soon-to-be graduate who is still looking for a job, or a continuing student still looking for an internship, this column is for you. I recently discovered an article, 27 Common Job Finding Mistakes, by Dick Gaither. Whether you’ve been looking for months without positive results or are just beginning your search, the article can be an excellent resource.

I was interested in reading it because I wanted to see how the content of our workshops, the articles in my blogs and the information we share in one-on-one appointments compared with Gaither’s list. (Incidentally, I am an admirer of his work.)

The list includes topics that should be familiar to you if you’ve been working with the Fulton Schools Career Center. You need to have a focus, have a good sense of your strengths and abilities and know how to self yourself. Job seeking is time consuming. You have to do research on each company and your resumes, cover letters, online applications and 30-second commercials have to be customized for each and every opportunity. Image is important and a positive, professional attitude is critical.

You need to be flexible and remember that all recruiters and hiring managers are evaluating you in terms of what you can do for them. So, even though you really want the job to be all about meeting your needs and matching your preferences, you know how important it is to present yourself in terms of what you can do rather than what you want.

Take the time to read Gather’s entire article. In fact, I recommend printing it out and using it as a guide as you continue (or start) your search. www.experienceworks.org/site/DocServer/Job_finding_mistakes.pdf?docID=17126

For those of you who haven’t heard, Noble Library has been closed for the remainder of Spring 2015 to repair damage caused by a sprinkler malfunction earlier this month.

While the library’s collection has been mostly unharmed, the study spaces, offices, furniture, and elevators suffered significant water damage.


  • Noble Library staff have relocated to Hayden Library. 
  • Course Reserve and Science Reserve material has been relocated and is now available at the Hayden Library Information Desk.
  • To request books shelved in Noble, use the request button on the book’s catalog record.
  • To Request articles from journal volumes shelved in Noble, or to request other material (maps, standards, microfilm, etc), use the Interlibrary Loan Service.

Staff are retrieving requested materials from Noble twice a day, Monday through Friday, for pick up at the Hayden Library Info Desk. Your engineering librarians, Linda and Sam, have offices in Hayden in the upper concourse, rooms C1D and C1H.

The library will remain closed during repairs and is expected to be open again in time for the Fall 2015 semester.

For more updates and photographs of the repair in progress, or how to obtain materials from Noble, visit the website created by Noble Library staff: libguides.asu.edu/noblenews.

Department of Energy research opportunities for Ph.D. students

Posted by on Mar 25, 2015 in Graduate Students, Opportunities | 0 comments

The Department of Energy’s Office of Science is now accepting applications for the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program. The SCGSR program provides graduate dissertation/thesis research opportunities at DOE national laboratories.

The SCGSR program is open to current Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. Applications are due at 5 p.m. (ET), April 14, 2015. For detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, visit science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr.

The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist over a 3 to 12 consecutive month period.

The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories. The supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory during the award period.

The Office of Science is expected to make approximately 100 awards in 2015, for project periods beginning anytime between October 2015 and September 2016.

Opportunities at Tethys Engineering

Posted by on Mar 25, 2015 in Opportunities | 0 comments

Screen Shot 2015-03-03 at 1.36.00 PM
Tethys Engineering is a new, local startup company focused on changing the economics of higher education and reinventing the way engineering apprenticeship is developed. Tethys hopes to accomplish this by providing students with a means of financially supporting their education while simultaneously gaining real-world engineering experience.

The company will employ teams of Mechanical Engineering students for as little as 5-10 hours per week to work on design and simulation projects handed to them directly from real engineering firms around the country.

Best of all, to better integrate students’ work schedules with their time spent at school, state-of-the-art work management software will enable work to be completed entirely from students’ homes or dorms—no need to travel to work or meet physically with team members.

Before Tethys Engineering can begin hiring students, however, the company needs to collect additional market data from both students and potential clients. If you are a Mechanical Engineering student, please take five minutes to fill out this brief survey.

Your responses will provide valuable insight for the startup of the company; and if you submit your email address, you will be contacted directly by the company founder with more information about how you can become a part of this exciting new venture!

For more information, visit the company website at tethysengineering.com.
