Preparing for Life After CSB/SJU
If you are a junior/senior then make sure you go to Career Services and get your CV (curriculum vitae) critiqued. If you want to participate in the the Roundtables you must have it done by 15 September.
Visiting Heidi Harlander (at SJU) is best as she is very familiar with jobs and how a CV should look, especially for STEM folks (Science Technology Engineering and Math).
I cannot tell you enough that you should get on E-link. It is only available to students but there are not only job listings but also alumnae/alumni contacts who WANT to be contacted about working at their particular job and company. It is an invaluable resource.
Summer Internships and job interviews begin early in the fall (mid-September ... see below for specifics).
For those to be seniors, if you think you may want to teach in a public school but do not have the background there is always Teach for America (very competitive to get into, as you are aware). There is also http://www.woodrow.org/news/news_items/2011_WW_IndianaTeachingFellows_Announced_050911.php, which is Woodrow Wilson Fellows and they are accepting applications. Similarly, there is the Match Corps Program.
Otherwise, as you are aware, at the bottom of my webpage www.users.csbsju.edu/~knairn there is a link to potential career opportunities and websites with information. I have not yet updated it for the coming semester. But if you are interested in a government internship or job (NSA, NASA, Sandia, Lawrence Livermore or Lawrence Berkeley) they have EARLY (typically OCTOBER) application deadlines. Take a look at the websites and get letters of recommendation soon.
Here are some letter/flyers sent to the department for post-undergraduate teaching/research experience:
