Welcome to Week 4, a busy one, as usual.
We have two of our favorite themes for you this week – Careers and Innovation.
But first a quick callout of our blog post outlining all the important academic updates this week from College of Business advising. Read this post and prepare for fall scheduling.
Now back to Careers: The spring OSU career expo is this week on Wed., April 26. They’ve got hundreds of employers lined up to attend. As well there is a companion diversity career symposium, providing a full day of career building sessions for diverse students; both events are at LaSells.
Also on Wednesday, in Austin Hall we have the spring accounting job fair, from 1 to 4 pm with employers from the State of Oregon, Jones & Roth, Precision Castparts, Moss Adams, and others.
One day ahead of the university event is the health professions expo hosted by the College of Science, which welcomes student from all majors.
Fridays in Austin’s theme this week is Innovation, and we bring in industry professionals from companies including Starbucks, Nike and WiLAN Inc. We also have a jobs seminar for international students, and a professional development workshop on cover-letter writing.
Friday in Austin will also be buzzing with Innovation Nation’s Spring Company Show. The first-year entrepreneurs will be displaying and selling their products in three sessions in the Austin Marketplace and 2nd floor.
We’d like to put this on your radar: save the date for next week’s Dean’s Executive Series Lecture featuring a keynote address from Tim Leatherman, OSU alum, chairman of the board, and co-founder of Leatherman Tools. He’ll discuss the story of Leatherman, creators of all-in-one tools. Tim’s keynote will kickoff the Shark Tank competition, hosted here by the Entrepreneurs Club and InnovationX.
There’s more, if you can believe it, and it is all in The Works. So look for that newsletter in your inbox, or read it online.
