Prepare for the Fulton Schools Career Fairs — Betty’s Career Tip

Posted by on Sep 1, 2022 in Career, Resources |

September and October are when most employers start recruiting Fall 2022 new grads, Spring 2023 new grads and Summer 2023 interns. Make sure you’re ready.

The Fulton Schools Career Fairs will be online. With online career fairs, you don’t have to wait in hot, noisy crowds and stand in long lines. You have an opportunity to use time more effectively because there is no need to walk back and forth. Students can attend before and after classes. In addition, online students have a level playing field with Tempe and Polytechnic campus students.

Employers can “bring” more hiring managers from the convenience of their desks. Out-of-state employers that might not be able to come to Arizona can attend online career fairs to expand the opportunities for ASU students.

Fulton Schools Academic Integrity Office tips for students.

If you are a senior, take a minute to think back on your academic career. You probably realize that you are a much better student now versus when you started. The reason for this is you learned the importance of developing good habits in your life.

Academic integrity issues often come up when a student has been in a panic about a deadline or has not studied enough to master the material. The sooner you can establish good habits and consistency in your life, the better off you will be. Here are a few tips to consider:

Neurodiversity Career Connector: Finding meaningful employment

Posted by on Jun 21, 2022 in Career, Resources |

Neurodiversity commonly includes but is not limited to autism, ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, dyscalculia and/or Tourette’s. For a variety of reasons, neurodivergent adults who want to work professionally are frequently left out of the workforce or forced into lower-skill jobs. Non-inclusive hiring and retention practices, a lack of employer education and training, an absence of on-the-job support ecosystems, and skill differences or needs that often do not align with standard business operations all contribute to the problem.

A neurodivergent condition affects an estimated 15% to 20% of the world’s population. Autism affects around 2% of American adults, which is the initial focus of many neurodiversity employment programs. Organizations have begun recognizing the value of hiring neurodivergent individuals. Their ability to think out of the box and produce creative solutions and ideas adds significant value.

Neurodiversity Career Connector is a featured job marketplace that assists neurodivergent individuals in connecting with employers in the United States who are looking for neurodivergent candidates.

Academic Integrity Office Tips for Students: Cheating Hurts Everyone

Posted by on Apr 4, 2022 in Resources |

Academic Integrity Matters

“I don’t cheat so it doesn’t impact me.” Cheating in university classes actually hurts everyone. Cheating makes grading in the classroom unfair to other students. It holds the potential to diminish the reputation of your degree within your professional community. It erodes the trust that your communities give to higher education institutions. As a university student, it’s very important to consider the many negative impacts that cheating has on your education.

These are not always easy situations to deal with, but here are a few tips to consider:

  • When/if you hear other students talking about cheating on an assignment, try to provide them other alternatives, like sharing helpful resources, encouraging them to attend instructor office hours, or even just letting them know it’s OK to get one bad grade and do better the next time.
  • If you see academically dishonest behavior occurring, notify your instructor so they can look into the matter and take appropriate steps.
  • If another student asks you to share their work with them, say something like, “No, I can’t do that, sharing my work could get us both into academic integrity trouble. Have you tried using the Fulton Schools Tutoring Center?”
  • The world needs leaders of high character and strong integrity; make it your personal commitment to model these behaviors both in the classroom and in interactions with your classmates.

Please visit the Academic Integrity Office website and the Fulton Schools Resources page for links to the Fulton Schools Tutoring Center and numerous other student resources.

Academic Integrity Office Tips for Students: Programming and Writing Code

Posted by on Mar 4, 2022 in Resources |

Academic Integrity Matters

Just like writing a short story, a how-to guide or even a poem, originality is important when writing code for your class assignments. In most Fulton Schools courses, the code you write must be your own original code that reflects your understanding of the assignment. When struggling with an assignment, it can be tempting to copy or borrow excessively from another person or source to get the assignment finished by the deadline. Do not give in to this temptation! Coding can be difficult but if you apply critical thinking and allow time for design, there is little doubt that you can succeed.
