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."
