Summer is right along the corner

Summer is coming and it is definitely time to start thinking about what to do either take summer courses find an internship position or find a job. Last year, I spent majority of my summer working to earn a little bit of cash for the coming semester. Within that time frame, I took an economic class and had a blast at Six Flags Marine World. The message I’m trying to send is to start planning for the summer NOW either work, school, internships, or any fun activities. Time is key and our precious summer should not be wasted! Here’s a list of classes to take this summer 09. I am actually taking IB 141 (Genetics) which is only offered this summer and PH162A (Microbiology). I’ve heard that IB 141 is pretty decent in terms of difficulty. Internships and volunteer opportunities are mentioned by Dale on the previous blog so you guys should check that out for specific deadlines and requirements. One thing I suggest is to be able to have a cover letter and resume and handy prior to filling out the application. The career center site has a great tool for making painless cover letters and resume. Make sure to click on the callisto log in and have that set up. Since we’re taking about internships and summer jobs, I want to remind everyone that the internship and summer job fair is coming this week on Feb 18 and 19 from 12pm to 4pm @ MLK Jr. Student Union; Pauley Ballroom, 3rd Floor; it is around lower sproul. All majors are accepted and please don’t forget your student ID and probably a handful copies of your resume. Till next time! P.S Here’s my movies for the week : Slumdog millionaire (awesome movie; I didn’t want it to end) and He’s just not in to you (great relationship type movie).
