Students, the end of the semester is almost here. Translation: lots of deadlines and final exams. Take time to relax and b-r-e-a-t-h-e over the long weekend. Take a few moments to be thankful; and, be sure to squeeze in time to have some fun.

We will be holding a “Career Conference” on Monday, December 17th. Staff will cover “How to write a technical resume” and “Successful interviewing”. There will be an employer panel and a presentation from immigration attorneys. Details will be on our website soon.

Advice from professionals — Joyce’s Career Tip of the Week

Posted by on Nov 13, 2018 in Career | 0 comments

Six professionals shared their career stories and answered students’ questions at the Aviation Panel and Mixer held last week on the Polytechnic campus. The panelists represented professional flight, air traffic control, engineering, law, teaching, management and entrepreneurialism.

Someone asked when a college student should do an internship. The answer was as soon as you can and as often as possible. We heard the story of a career that began with the job of being a “ball boy” for the Miami Heat. The story (and the career) evolved from an unpaid to paid internship, through sports marketing, networking in the circle of professional athletics, seeing the need and providing the link between professional athletes and private jets.

SEDS-ASU Rocketry Division dedicates rockets to veterans

Posted by on Nov 13, 2018 in Organizations and Teams | 0 comments

This past summer the members of SEDS-ASU Rocketry Division were hard at work building a rocket for the annual Spaceport America Cup competition. This organization is a chapter of the international organization, Students for the Exploration and Development of Space or SEDS. This chapter was formed last February becoming an official Fulton Student Organization.

These students built a 10-foot rocket with more than 500 pounds of thrust to reach 10,000 feet in altitude and carry an 8.8-pound payload. With the help of a few industry sponsors as well as ASU’s very own KEEN Grant, the team was able to raise more than $15,000 to build the rocket and travel to New Mexico for the launch. The team also partnered with several non-profit veteran organizations including: Wings for Warriors, Team Overland and The Veterans Community Center. SEDS-ASU Rocketry Division advertised these organizations on their social media raising awareness for them as well as raising donations for their efforts.
