Students and CAP Members Benefit from Info Sessions

Monday, November 21, 2011

Nearly fifty students attended a résumé workshop offered by Microsoft in October.It's been a busy Autumn for Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) students and Corporate Affiliates Program (CAP) members alike, with Boeing, IBM, Microsoft, and Salesforce all holding information sessions and other workshops for HCDE students. Boeing's info session was standing room only, and Boeing was able to interview more than ten students for internship positions as part of their session. Microsoft offered a résumé workshop that was attended by nearly fifty students, during which students were able to work one-on-one with Microsoft representatives.

IBM held a two-day event, during which IBM representative Rick Herder met with both faculty and students and held an info session for more than forty students. After the event, Herder wrote, "Thank you so much for your hospitality and for making my first visit so memorable. Everything was well-prepared and my interactions with faculty, staff and students were useful and very interesting. I was especially impressed with the questions and comments I received during my class presentations. I'm still following up on questions from faculty and I'm also holding follow-up phone conversations with several students."

HCDE student Joy Palludan also commented on all of the CAP-related programming in correspondence with HCDE Director of Student Services Gian Bruno: "Thank you so much for presenting the Boeing and T-Mobile opportunities that landed me two offers! I feel so grateful to be part of such a great department. Thanks for all you've done."
