Please read about this great opportunity from Robert Schmitt, MSOE Senior M.E. student:

 

I am looking for one or two fellow students to be part of my amateur racing team for the remainder of this summer. I would like to send this opportunity to all the engineering students. The position will be unpaid, but meals and transportation will be provided. I have previously been my entire team for most races, but this year I am both racing and instructing in the high performance driving education program, which means I have little time between sessions on track. The class I run is called Spec E30 and the organization is the National Autosport Association(NASA). I am the reigning Midwest region champion and hold the official lap record at Road America.

 

This is a good opportunity to network with other engineers and introduce yourself to some of the Midwest's semiprofessional racing teams such as Fall line, Accumoto, VFC Engineering, and Mueller Motorwerks.   It is of course an opportunity to watch some sports car racing from up close. 

 

The ideal candidate would be someone interested in a career in auto racing who desires to learn as much about it as possible. They should have experience working on cars, be able to lift over 50 pounds, and be willing to get their hands dirty.  First preference will be given to a candidate with a commercial drivers license or verifiable experience towing a large trailer. They should be willing to spend long days in the hot sun, sleep in a tent(your own), and go on long road trips.

 

Primary Duties Include:

  • Changing wheels, pads and rotors
  • Performing fuel calculations and refueling
  • Performing camber and toe measurements and adjustments
  • Taking tire pyrometer and pressure measurements
  • Adjusting tire pressures
  • Refilling driver cooling and hydration systems
  • Photography and management of on-board cameras
  • Data analysis and coding(Lua)
  • Radio spotting
  • Towing(if qualified)
  • Tool and equipment loading and cleanup
  • Making coffee
  • Other unexpected vehicle maintenance
  • Wiring and soldering


Anyone interested must be available the following dates. It is unlikely that I will be attending the last two events since I am also a full time student.

Gingerman (Crossover) South Haven, MI

July 17-19, 2015

We are excited to announce that Career Net will be changing platforms this summer. We are switching vendors from Experience to a company called Handshake, and we think you will be quite pleased with the new system.  Updates will include new and modern technology, a mobile-friendly site, outstanding customer service and support, intuitive features, walk-throughs, single-sign on from your MSOE account, and much more.  Your ability to interface with employers should increase dramatically.

 

To help with the transition, here are some tips:

  • You can still search for and apply to jobs in the current system, powered by Experience.  The site will stay live during the transition.
  • Please avoid uploading any new documents, except when required for an application.
  • Your current account information should transfer to Handshake, except for any new accounts or updates you made after May 7th.  Things should also automatically update in the future as your MSOE academic information changes.
  • We suggest that you retain saved copies of your resumes and cover letters on your computer, as you will no longer have access to them in the Experience system after June 30th at the latest.
  • If you do not have an account in the current system, your academic information should automatically populate in the new one.


Seniors/Alumni: If you have already accepted a job or grad school position and no longer need an account in Career Net, please complete the online Graduate Survey ( http://www.msoe.edu/graduate-survey ).

 

Underclassmen: If you have accepted an internship and haven't already told us about it, please complete the online Internship Survey ( http://www.msoe.edu/internship-survey ).

 

We will keep you updated by e-mail throughout the transition.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us at 414-277-7120 or career-services@msoe.edu.  We appreciate your patience, and are confident the new system will best suit your needs.

We hear stories all the time about recruiters finding people on LinkedIn.  It even happened for me, personally.  Here's an article that provides detailed examples and screenshots of how YOU can update your profile to increase your chances of being found.

As the school year comes to a close, the pressure to find a job after graduation builds.  While you may be tempted to accept any offer that comes your way, it is important to do your due diligence and protect yourself from scams and schemes.  If an opportunity looks too good to be true, it probably is.  If you are unsure if a company is reputable, there are some resources to assist:

  • http://www.glassdoor.com - employees who work at a company provide insider reviews on the pros and cons of working there
  • http://www.ripoffreport.com - people who have been burned in the past can report companies to this website
  • It is also a good idea to Google search the company name followed by the word scam.

The Career Services Office is here to help, and we can tell you if we have worked with a company before and how legit it might be.  Our services apply to you for life after graduation, so please contact us if you ever have any questions about your job search.  Good luck!

Another great etiquette tip from Culture and Manners Institute!


I have a friend who is handsome, charming, successful, extremely intelligent, well read, well mannered… and he is terrified of social situations. The idea of walking into any room and talking to strangers -- well, he'd rather die.

Learning to network doesn't mean everyone has to transform into this outgoing, "Hey, howya' doin'" life-of-the-party person.

If you are a shy, introverted person, you can leverage that natural shyness.

Have a few open-ended questions to ask people you meet. That requires minimal talk on your part and will endear you to others. When you are not much of a talker, the simplest question is, “Tell me about yourself.” The best networkers are listeners, not talkers.

The other thing you can do as a shy person is learn to make introductions. That allows you to stand back while others talk, but still score big points. The most popular person at any party is not the person who tells the best jokes, it's the person who introduces people to each other.

So if you are shy, don't go changing. Get out there and network.

Most employers utilize an online search to learn about their potential candidates.  Are you confident that they will find positive information about you?  The article linked below is long, but the information will help you manage your online reputation and avoid missing out on potential opportunities:

The strangest story I have ever heard about a meal interview: a PhD candidate for a university position planted a fork in the middle of a chicken breast, turned it upside down and began taking bites out of it... like it was food on a stick from a state fair. The two interviewers sat mouths agape.

Sometimes it's the big things that cause you to not get the job or potential client. But sometimes it is the little, quirky things.

A few weeks ago, I was giving a dining tutorial at a university and employers in the room revealed what interview candidates did during interview meals that bounced them out of contention:

"She took butter and put it in her coffee. I was completely disgusted by that."
"He answered questions while he still had food in his mouth."
"She blew a bubble with her chewing gum."
"In his second interview over lunch, he boasted about his organizational skills by saying he had organized a five-keg party."
"Her cell phone went off during the interview and she answered it."
"He licked his fingers. That was the hand I was supposed to shake at the end of the meal."

"What's the big deal?" you might think, as you snap your bubble gum. These employers are getting a preview of what their clients or other stakeholders would be seeing, if these people were representing their organization.

Just one reason we learn etiquette -- because we are not just representing ourselves.

The Tactical Defense Systems Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory offers summer research internship positions for both undergraduate and graduate students. Due to the nature of work at the Lincoln Laboratory, U.S. citizenship is required. General details of the summer programs can be found online at http://www.ll.mit.edu/college/summerprogram.html. The majority of the groups at MIT Lincoln Laboratory focus on electrical engineering, physics, and computer science. However, there are a number of other opportunities in areas like solid state devices, biological sciences, and mechanical engineering to name a few. There are other benefits related to relocation/travel expenses, subsidized on-campus housing at MIT, daily transportation between Cambridge and Lexington, and access to professional development coursework (presentation skills, etc.).
