Spring & Internship Fair
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Phoenix Rooms, University Union
Two events are held each year — one in early Fall (late September/early October) and in Spring (late February/early March). The Fair is geared towards all students at the University, whether they are seeking full-time or internship opportunities, or wanting to obtain information about employers or the types of positions employed at various organizations. As an employer, visit with potential candidates and share information about your organization and the typical positions for which you hire. Contact Karla Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or for more information.

Friday, September 28th was the birthday of the new UWGB Computer Science Club (CSC). The founding members are 4 UWGB Computer Science majors. Elected Chair is Baasanbat Purevjal (Baska), Club Officers are Aaron Albright, Shayon Mukharjee and Brandon Oium. Founding mambers include Jacob Owens and Eric Christenson. Since then the Club was joined by additional Computer Science majors.
The first even is Friday October 5th, the Raspberry Boot-up at which a Raspberry Pi (pictured) will be started up. Plans of the Club include attending hackathons, participating in the ACM Intercollegiate Programming Contest, learning mobile app development, trying our hands with microcontrollers (PIC, ATMEL or Arduino) and robots (arms and more). All geeks are called to join at (or click the picture) https://orgsync.com/58635/chapter?welcome=true
Don’t forget that Wednesday is the day of the Fall Jobs and Careers Fair: Wednesday, September 26 from 9:30am to 1pm. Stop by in the Phoenix Rooms with a resume, dressed in professional attire, and start looking for the internship or full-time position that will be your first job after graduation.
Remember: no internship, and you will not have a first job! For at least two or three years, or more … So no excuse for any delay, the time is now. Check in with Career Services so that they can take a look at your resume. It also should be professional, no typos, no errors, no bad grammar. Then – best of luck in your new career!
Also remember the word to the wise: the most important day in a student’s life at college is the day after graduation. That’s when the truth is out: does the student get a professional, well-paid job, and start a career, or just joins the hordes of the unemployed or under-employed, with a degree that’s good for nothing. So if you don’t get a job the moment you graduate, I will give you an “F” retroactively for a random course! (Just kidding. But realize the importance of getting ready to go.)
Calling all Computer Science students!
Every year the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) organizes the ACM – ICPC, the International Collegiate Programming Contest. The 2013 ICPC will be hosted by the Saint Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics in beautiful Saint-Petersburg, Russia, because the Russian team from that university won the world finals this year.
We have received a student request to form a participating team at UWGB. We need three (3) Computer Science majors who are interested in being contestants. This will be a first for our program. While all other UW campuses participate, UWGB has been on the sidelines. The time has come! Maybe we will host the ICPC in 2014! Because we win the world finals in 2013! Go Phoenix! (Well, short of that, participation would be a first, and an honor). So far there is definite interest from one (1) Computer Science major, so we are looking for two more incredibly talented and brilliant CS majors (of which we have an abundance). So contact the Chair (email@example.com) if you are interested.
