Firms want study abroad and proof of broadness.

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The following is excepted from a list serve I receive.  It warns against defining yourself too narrowly in a tough economic times.  Now is not the time to circle the wagons and just go to class, study, get good grades and graduate as cheaply as possible.  Don't assume getting certified in your profession will be enough.  Everyone hire-able in your profession clears that bar.  Internships, co-ops, study abroad, and undergraduate research are prerequisites to getting hired in today's economy. 

"We just had a giant recruitment fair (~239 firms came and were clearly hiring/cooping/interning; it rebounded from a couple of years ago). Anecdotal news was that the firms were looking for study abroad and proof of broadness.  One of my foreign policy students showed up to office hours in a suit. I asked who was interviewing him (I think he's a Chem Eng). "Caterpillar."  I duly admired this and asked "What questions did did they ask?"  "They wanted to know about my Law and Society minor.  They wanted someone who could understand the legal and social consequences of the things we were building. And, yes, they were curious if I wanted to go into IP law."  I heard others say that their study abroad was the core topic and the firms said it was one reason they had selected the individual for an interview."

How To Avoid Becoming a Pseudo Global Citizen

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Reposted from engageabroad. - Originally posted on .

A university official running global programs lamented in his blog that global citizenship, a term that is meant to convey concern for global social justice and taking responsibility for the wellbeing of the earth  is being misunderstood by many students.  Students he spoke to thought that global citizenship meant the ability to feel at home in London  - a place that did not say global citizenship to him.  While I applaud Americans becoming aware of and caring about the global community as a whole,  I firmly believe that a profound knowledge of a foreign culture is an essential component for a true global citizen.   And without wishing to be too shocking -- the UK (including London) is part of a foreign culture.
CHC alumna, Kaitlyn Johnson is the online editor for Boston magazine.  She has been there since June 2011.  She wanted me to share opportunities for editorial, online, marketing, advertising, art, and photo internships with CHC students at bostonmagazine.com

Prior to June, Kaitlyn was the online editor at Pittsburgh magazine / pittsburghmagazine.com and actually interned there while she was at IUP.  She suggests that this would be a great internship for editorial, marketing, advertising students -- and closer to home, which is something that she was looking to pull off when she wanted to gain experience in the field, too: http://www.pittsburghmagazine.com/Pittsburgh-Magazine/Internships/

Let me know at kevinb@iup.edu if you are interested in applying for either internship this summer and I will put you directly in touch with Kaitlyn for information and assistance.

Tibetan Monks to Visit IUP

Ten Buddhist monks who specialize in Tibetan visual and performing arts will be at IUP Oct. 24 - Oct. 31.  This group has traveled throughout the United States creating such mandalas at universities and top museums, including the Smithsonian (monk-artists from the same organization came to IUP in 2003 and 2006).  A mandala is an abstract representation of the universe.  The monks will work more than 40 hours on the mandala, pouring thousands of grains of colored sand to complete the design.  Once the mandala is done on Oct. 31, it will be left on display for an hour and then swept up.  The group will also perform a concert of Tibetan music and dance on the evening of Oct. 29.Tib
