The Business, Accounting and Finance Career Fair is TUESDAY! DRESS TO IMPRESS!

Are you prepared?  Have you registered and researched the companies who will be attending, and have a game plan for talking with each of them?  Have you polished your resume?  Do you have an elevator pitch (15-30 seconds on who you are and what you’re looking for?)  Are you planning to bring something professional to collect things in?  (A bag or pad-folio can go a long way!)  And last but not least, are you prepared to be professionally dressed?

Business etiquette for professional attire can vary based on gender.  Here are some helpful tips when considering attire for the Career Fair.

Men: Your suit should fit, be ironed, nicely tailored, and conservative regarding color choices.  A tie is almost always a good idea, and make sure you have shined, closed-toed shoes (with matching socks) as well. Your shoes and belt should match if you choose to wear one, be careful of too much cologne, and make sure your facial hair is kept neat.  Piercings and tattoos should be minimized or covered if possible.

Women: Your suit should fit, be nicely tailored, avoid overpowering patterns, and be conservative regarding color choices.  Avoid distracting jewelry, revealing clothing, overpowering perfume, and makeup that could be considered distasteful.  Shined, closed toes shoes with low heels are recommended (you will be standing for some time).

All students:  Make sure your hair is neat, choose mints over gum, and leave your phone in your pocket/bag unless you’re using it to take down some employer information!  And remember…the best thing you can wear is a smile!

 

Reminder, check IN with Career Services at the elevators on the 3rd floor, and check OUT for MAP miles at the elevator after you’re finished.  We will start checking out at approximately 3:45pm, but you should plan to spend some time with the employers in the room!

Comments Off on Add-Drop is now over for the Fall 2015 semester

Add-Drop is now over for the Fall 2015 semester

Tuesday, September 15 was the last day to be able to add a course for the semester, or to be able to drop a course without a “W”.  If Wiser shows that you are still on a wait list for the fall semester, you can either drop yourself from that wait list, or not – it actually doesn’t matter at this time since Wiser will no longer be adding students to courses from the wait list through the automated process.  If you are still on a waitlist, you should also stop attending that course (if you haven’t stopped already).

The next chance to register for classes that you might not have gotten into this semester is on Monday, November 2 for Spring 2016 semester courses. Best wishes for a great fall semester!

Comments Off on Getting Enrolled into a Full CM Course

Getting Enrolled into a Full CM Course

Once a class is full, we allow wiser to automatically work through the waitlist whenever a seat opens up.  Occasionally, faculty will allow extra students into the course, over the prescribed capacity.  The CM Undergraduate Program Office must hear directly from the instructor if s/he wants to take extra students, and how many.  Even with the professors permission to add extra students, not everyone from the waitlist will be able to be moved into the course.  If you are able to get a seat in the course through the regular waitlist process or through a professor consenting to adding students to the course, you will see this reflected on Wiser (your status will got from “waiting” to “enrolled”).  Please note that when adding extra students, they are moved in the waitlist order using the same parameters noted above, and students must be on the waitlist before they can be added to the course.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

–       We will strive to have over-enrollment requests handled within two business days.  Please check wiser to check on the status of this.  Also, please bear in mind that the time an instructor tells you s/he will contact us, and the time we get the actual request may be different times, sometimes even different days.

–       We do not notify students of these registration changes when they happen; please keep checking Wiser.

–       Please note that to be fair to all students, we cannot move a student ahead of other waiting students.  We accommodate students in the order of the waitlists for over enrollment issues.

–       The last day to add a course this semester is SEPTEMBER 15. If you are not enrolled in a course by this date, there is no need for you to continue attending the course, as you will not be able to be added after this date.
