I hope you’re all having wonderful weekends! Thank you to those of you who have already made your “Introduction” posts … they are great! Don’t forget to read each other’s posts and comment on them throughout the week.
As discussed in class, the goals for this first week are to become familiar with OpenLab and the course themes, materials,and guidelines/expectations, and to begin to research the job market, communication expectations, and career materials for your particular field.
There are a number of different things due before our next class (on W 9/10), so don’t forget to consult our dymanic course Schedule, as always, for all HW (and make sure to click through to all the links, which take you to relevant readings, posts, assignments, and information). Just a friendly reminder that all posts are due the night before class begins; formal assignments are due at the start of class.
There are a number of things that need doing (some brief readings, another post, your “job search” & Cover Letter + Resume in response), and you also need to get a Dropbox account and join our shared class folder (this is where you will be submitting your Career Materials for this Wednesday, and all other assignments this semester going forward). Please don’t hesitate to e-mail me with any questions (and remember, I have office hours on Tuesdays, 11:15am-12:15pm if you want to discuss anything in person). Looking forward to seeing you again in a few days 🙂
