Thanksgiving and Job Shadowing‏

Thanksgiving and Job Shadowing‏

Don't forget to check out the College of Natural Sciences Externship Program — opportunities await. 

Dear Students,

Many of us will clear the campus this week, off to visit family or friends for the Thanksgiving holiday. It will be a welcome reprieve. With its end-of-semester pause from exams and homework, I almost think Abraham Lincoln must have been thinking of us at universities when he called on all Americans to observe a national day of Thanksgiving. Small or large, I hope you can use this week to be reminded of the advances you have made or opportunities you've been given this past year. As an old proverb says, "Who does not thank for little will not thank for much."

While you are home this week I wanted you to be aware of and considering a new program in CNS, the College of Natural Sciences Externship Program (January 7th, 8th, & 9th, 2014). This program is an opportunity for students to visit an employer in Texas for one day during winter break in January 2014. You will have an opportunity to shadow an executive, get real world experience and exposure to what professionals in their field do on a daily basis, and gain insight into the professional work environment. Currently there are over 30 companies in Texas who will be participating in this event (availability varies by major)! You will be required to provide your own transportation to the externship site.

Registration will begin this week. If you've already registered with Science Works, you will receive an email from the Career Design Center when registration opens, or you can check the events page of the Career Design Center. Registration will be completed via ScienceWorks on a first-come, first-served basis. Here is an opportunity, in an era when you hear about the difficulty in gaining real exposure to careers, job shadowing, and mentorship, to have an up-close exposure to executives and leaders in their field.

With best wishes for a safe and rewarding Thanksgiving holiday,
-- Dr. Kopp

PS: Each week we try to let you know of events, scholarship opportunities, etc. Check out the full week's line-up at this link.
