Starting to apply for jobs
The first set of postings for fall term co-op jobs went up yesterday --
can you believe it? -- and expires at 8:00 tonight. The second posting will
be up tomorrow at 10 a.m., or earlier in the day for those who use the
"student access" computer system in the
co-op department. Future sets of postings go up this Friday, and May
24, 26 and 30; then employer interviews begin on Wednesday, May 31.
Says the fine print in the
"Co-op Dates and Procedures": "You may apply for a maximum of 50 jobs
posted between May 15
and June 2. . . . With the uncertainty of today's economy, many employers
cannot predict the need for co-op students until the last minute. In past
terms, a significant number of students found jobs in the latter part of
the term. So, don't panic if posted job choices prior to the rank/match
date are limited."
Power shutdown overnight
Electrical power (plus heating, cooling and ventilation) will be turned
off from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. tomorrow in Environmental Studies 1 and 2, and
the Arts Lecture Hall. Advice from the plant operations department:
"Computer equipment should be shut down in an orderly fashion (particularly
Unix systems). For further information or assistance, contact
DCS help desk, ext. 4839 or lycke@watserv1."
