Archive for April, 2006
The rumors are true, I’m flying to Norman on Thursday, April 20th, and fly back to Austin Saturday afternoon of that weekend. Unfortunately, I’m not able to stay through the full weekend, since I promised my manager I’d keep the trip around a certain number. I’m coming up because I’m speaking at IEEE OU’s Awards Banquet, on my experience as an employee fresh out of college, and how new graduates can get the most out of the early portions of their careers.
Melissa Walker, IEEE OU’s outgoing Chair, invited me to come up a few weeks ago. In addition to my talk, we’re going to make this a recruting event, since IBM will be sponsoring the banquet. Have resumes handy if you’re interested in a position. While I’m not a hiring manager, I will be reporting back to them on potential candidates. To anyone from IEEE that might be reading this, if you haven’t already done so (and this is a little late in the game), have OU’s Career Services review your resume.
I look forward to seeing everyone in my first of several trips to Norman this year!
