February 2012 Archives

The only three true job interview questions are:

1.  Can you do the job?
2.  Will you love the job?
3.  Can we tolerate working with you?

That's it.  Those three.  Think back, every question you've ever posed to others or had asked of you in a job interview is a subset of a deeper in-depth follow-up to one of these three key questions.  Each question potentially may be asked using different words, but every question, however it is phrased, is just a variation on one of these topics: Strengths, Motivation, and Fit.

Work Opportunity for CHC Students

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
CHC alumna, Johanna Smith is getting married on May 12, 2012 and having her reception at the IUP college lodge. She is in need of 3-5 trustworthy people to help with the event and thought CHC students would fit the bill.  

You would need to be available to help with the food and general cleanup. Ideally you would arrive earlier to help get the food ready, stay throughout to watch the food and do cleanup, and do the main cleanup after the reception ends (food, taking the decorations off the tables, putting the tables and chairs away, sweeping up, whatever.) total of about 8 hours.

Let me know if you are interested or have any questions.  I will put you directly in touch with her by email.

What Honor Societies are Legit?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
If you receive an invitation to join a national honor society, it's in your best interest to check it out prior to cutting that annual or lifetime membership fee. 

The Association of College Honors Societies is a professional organization that lists college honors organizations.   Their website http://www.achsnatl.org/ is a good place to assess the legitimacy and value of an honors society.
 
Be sure it is a legitimate organization that provides real services to its members.  Good honors societies have member benefits like scholarship opportunities and active campus chapters.  Honor societies in name alone may serve as a line item on your resume, but they won't provide an opportunity for meaningful involvement in the advancement of organizational goals, leadership opportunities or networking opportunities.

The deadline for students to submit proposals for IUP's Seventh Annual Undergraduate Scholars Forum will be 5pm Friday February 24, 2012. The event itself will be held on Tuesday, April 3, 2012.  We hope that members of the IUP community will encourage students to submit their work to the Forum. Remember that all proposals must have a faculty sponsor.

 

The purpose of this conference is to provide IUP undergraduate students across all disciplines with an opportunity for professional development by presenting their original research, scholarly activities, teacher work samples, or creative works. A variety of presentation formats are available, including individual and group oral presentations, discussion panels, poster sessions and arts presentations. Faculty members are asked to be selective. Thus, if you assign a project in class with the intent of having students present their work at the USF, please select only those of the highest quality for submission to the Forum.

 

Submissions are accepted from ALL undergraduate students at IUP who demonstrate outstanding accomplishment in scholarly activity within their discipline. Students who graduated from undergraduate programs in December are eligible to submit a proposal to the forum as long as they are able to attend the event and present their work.

 

The call for submissions is available now at http://www.iup.edu/undergradscholars
