There's no Gazette today

The Gazette will be back next Wednesday, July 5. As usual in a week when there isn't a Gazette, the Positions Available listing from the human resources department is being circulated on paper to all departments, and should also be available on UWinfo. Here are the headlines for this week's positions:
Administrator, school of optometry, grade USG 11 ("extensive management experience").

Stationery sales assistant, bookstore, grade USG 3 ("two years' retail experience in stationery sales").

Secretary-receptionist, physics, grade USG 3 ("extensive office experience").

Associate director, Waterloo Management of Integrated Manufacturing Systems group, management sciences, grade USG 9 ("MASc . . . experience in the manufacturing industry . . . familiarity with management science approaches").

Admissions and records assistant, registrar's office, grade USG 3-4 ("experience with record keeping in a computerized environment").

Next step in co-op job placement

The formal interview period for fall work term jobs is over, and job matching results are available. They were to be posted on the electronic "Student Access System" at midnight, where students can find them this morning "if no problems are encountered", says Olaf Naese of the co-op department.

A list of the co-op students who are without employment following the "computer match" will be posted on the co-op department bulletin boards at 12 noon today. These students should then attend a meeting later today to begin the "continous phase" of employer interviews. Times and places of the meetings:

Applied health studies, 4:30 p.m., Math and Computer 2065
Arts, 4:30 p.m., Engineering Lecture 103
Engineering term 1B, 4:30 p.m., Engineering Lecture 101
Engineering term 2B and up, 5:30 p.m., Engineering Lecture 101
Environmental studies, 4:30 p.m., PAS (Psychology) room 2083
Mathematics and accounting, 4:30 p.m., Davis Centre 1351
Science, 4:30 p.m., Biology 1 room 271
Students who do have employment will be scheduled to see a coordinator beginning tomorrow to confirm acceptance and to receive job reporting information. Schedules for those interviews will be posted at 3 p.m. today.

Meanwhile, Students Advising Co-op has scheduled a "Co-op Student Symposium" for today, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the "multi-purpose room" that links the old and new sections of the Student Life Centre. Says a bulletin from SAC: "There is no need to stay for the full three hours -- you can come in for an hour or less if you wish."

During the symposium, students will have the chance to meet with several employer representatives about "what they expect to see on resumes and in the interview", and with co-op department staff about "what you think about the co-op system, how it can be improved and more".

The Bulletin on the Web

If you're reading this Daily Bulletin on the World Wide Web, with a browser such as Netscape, Mosaic or Lynx, you might not have noticed it but you're pointing to a new location today. The URL for the hypertext version of the Daily Bulletin is now
and that's what you should enter if you have to point your browser manually. If you are finding the Bulletin from the home page of UWinfo or the UW Electronic Library, the change has been made for you automatically.

It's still possible to read a text-only version of the Daily Bulletin through the UWinfo gopher. (But it won't always be possible; the gopher technology is becoming obsolete, and people at UW are being urged to switch to the Web as quickly as possible.) And of course a text version of the Bulletin is also posted each day to the Usenet newsgroups uw.general and uw.campus-news.
