August 16, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Hello Hoyas!

I hope you enjoy your last couple weeks of summer break before arriving on campus to start the academic year. I am in the midst of planning a variety of fall programs with alumni support including a resume review event and technical interviewing workshop with a professional from Amazon AWS. Stay tuned!

This summer, we made updates to the industry guides and recruiting timelines. With the timeline guide (bottom of the page), keep in mind it’s a general guide so it is possible firms will hire outside of these timelines; these are just rules of thumb as to when firms in these industries are most active. The technology industry guide includes career exploration sites, activities to get involved with on and off campus, job sites beyond Handshake, resources to help prepare for technical interviewing, and more.

Last, STEM for Her is launching a pilot mentoring program for college students. The STEM for Her mission is to create awareness, excitement and opportunities among young women to launch successful STEM-related careers. Mentorship is a critical component of that mission, and they are launching this program as a new way to advance it. The application closes Sept 16. Sample mentors work at NASA, iRobot, Audi of America, and Deloitte. Check out this short article, Mentorship Is Key To Career Success For Young Professionals, where the author states “the benefits that you can gain from a good mentor relationship can outweigh grad school, natural ability, and even dumb luck. The key is to have the foresight and humility to ask to be mentored.” Folks, this program is (almost) a bird in hand. Don’t pass up this potential life-changing opportunity.

All the best,
Jodi Schneiderman |
Assistant Director, Employer Relations and Industry Advising | Health, Science, and Technology

America’s Top Employers for News Grads

Sources: Forbes

While most of you aren’t new graduates, many of you will be graduating in 9 months (eek!) and many more will be looking for internships in hopes of securing a full-time job with the organization in the future. With that, Forbes provides a list of top companies for new graduates via surveying 20,000 Americans with less than 10 years professional experience working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. The top tech (and aerospace) employers listed include Indeed (#1), NASA (#4), Adobe (#13), and Hewlett Packard (#16). Adobe makes the list due to their expanded benefits to include physical and mental health as well as financial well-being. New grads may also take advantage of Adobe’s student loan refinancing and one-time education reimbursement of up to $10,000.  LinkedIn offers $5,000 toward tuition reimbursement, student loan refinancing and free financial coaching, as well as a $2,000 annual allowance for fitness classes, childcare or student loan repayments, among other things.
