Welcome back SHPEitos,
The start of school is right around the corner and with that means more weekly updates. Here are some events and some upcoming opportunities you may find interesting.
General Body Meetings
This year our first GBM will be hosted on September 11th in SAC 303, from 8 – 10 pm! Come down and talk with all the members that you haven’t since the end of the school year. Most importantly there will be food so please come down!
SHPE will be participating in both the general and CEAS involvement fairs. SHPE will have a table on Wednesday August 28th for the general involvement fair. If you would like to help out with the setup of the table and recruiting students to join SHPE meet us at the SHPE office which is in Old Comp Sci 1306. The CEAS involvement fair will be held on Wednesday September 11th, from 12:30 – 2:30 pm. Again if you would like to help setup the table and recruit for either involvement fair meet us in the SHPE office at 12 pm the day of the fair.
SHPE National Conference
Conference will be held from October 30th to November 2nd. Nationals is a time to get great experience talking to recruiters and putting yourself out there to get the big job you’ve been working toward. Last year was my first conference and at times it can get very overwhelming but being their with your friends calms your nerves and really helps get the most out of it. You won’t know what can happen unless you actually take the leap. For everyone that is going good luck, lets all be like Franco and get 17 interviews in two hours. We’re planning on booking an airbnb from October 30 (Wednesday) to November 3rd (Sunday). Remember that flights will only get more expensive the closer they get to the departure date so everyone should start checking the ticket prices now.
NACME Virtual Career Fair
This event will be held online on August 27th to 28th at this fair you will: connect with hiring representatives at the very beginning of the Fall recruitment season, engage remotely via dynamic one-on-one and group web chats in each booth, make new connections and broaden your network directly from your home location, and discuss in real-time summer and full-time job opportunities in engineering or computer science. Some of the top companies will be participating like Boston Scientific, Microsoft, and Northrop Grumman to name a few. if you’re interested please register here
That’s everything for the immediate future, as the weeks go on we will talk about more events and opportunities as they come up.
All the best,
