It is a great time to be a WSU Engineering Warrior!
By Laurianne McLaughlin, Information Week
The biggest obstacle to your IT career success may be your inner voice, says Dell CIO and Wayne State University College of Engineering alumna Adriana Karaboutis.
“I have this saying,” Dell CIO Adriana Karaboutis told me recently. “‘Get out of your own way.’ Often it’s your internal voice that stops you.”
Her advice to rising female IT leaders echoes what I’ve heard from Wal-Mart CIO Karenann Terrell. Women tend to wait longer than men before reaching for that next role, seeking that big promotion, moving to a different industry, Terrell says. Women — and not just women in IT — listen to an inner voice that tells us to make the resume perfect before we try to climb the next career ladder rung.

It is a great time to be a WSU Warrior!
Hello Wayne State University Warriors!

I glanced at their current openings on their website today and there are numerous entry level jobs as well as college internships in the following disciplines:
- Civil and Environmental Engineering
- Industrial Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Computer Science – Information Systems
- Mechanical Engineering
- MBA Interns
- College Interns “All other Majors”
I do believe that this basically covers all WSU Warriors looking for jobs. So bring your resumes and your interest to room 1520 of the Engineering Development Center between 1:00 and 3:00 today. Be sure to also apply to the current openings at http://www.consumersenergy.com/content.aspx?id=1151.
Be a great warrior and share this with a friend.
We look forward to seeing you today in the Engineering building.
It is a smart career decision to register for the Co-op Course in order to document your work in industry. Your Career Services Co-op Coordinators can assist you in registering for this course even after regular registration period is complete. After all, jobs do not always start neatly when a semester begins.
There are at least 5 reasons that WSU Engineering students should register for one of the co-op courses each time they work in industry.
1. BE 3500 – Co-op Record documents your work in industry on your official transcript. Your resume and transcript should reflect each other. Employers will see your engagement with the co-op / internship process. When you apply to jobs for the rest of your career, your transcript will be requested. Employers that participate with co-op or internships with any university know that a formal co-op programs exists; students register for a campus course when they are working in industry. When your resume documents that you have worked co-ops or internships, but your transcript is missing the course, questions may arise. Having the course on your record each semester will say that you work with the systems without question.
2. The course may help you to keep full time status active with the university. Without the enrollment in the course, it appears that you have “stopped-out” for a semester or two. You should communicate the benefits of enrolling in this course with your financial aid advisor and academic advisor. Some students may need to be enrolled to remain on their parent’s health insurance. This course could be the solution to these issues.
3. Professional Schools will note the gaps in your transcript when you are applying. Just like applicants for employment have to explain gaps in employment on their resume, applicants for professional schools have to explain the gaps in enrollment on their transcript. When you register for the BE 3500 course, you have continuous enrollment.
4. Having a campus-based, career service professional dedicated to you while working off campus is ideal. This is part of the role of a Co-op Coordinator. When work politics arise (and they usually do) having open communication with someone with your best interest in mind is a benefit of course enrollment.
5. It is free! The BE 3500 – 0 credit Co-op Record course has $0.00 tuition. If you are not enrolled in other campus courses, the registration fee is even waived. If you want credit for your work in industry then you should enroll for the one credit course. This is coordinated through the academic departments. Your Academic Advisor will be able to advise you in the correct procedure.
So if you are an undergraduate student not registered this semester, call (313) 577-3390 to reach your Co-op Coordinator assigned to your major. Graduate students will have a course in each department if you are working or plan to work in industry. it has a different format than the career services course but will indicate a semester of working in industry.If you are a graduate student, you should contact your Academic Advisor to see your options. As the College of Engineering, Career Services Consultant, I remain availalbe to you if you have career concerns or career related good news. I can be reaced at 313 577-8336, email@example.com or connect with me on Linkedin, www.linkedin.com/in/carmengamlin.
