  1. Make sure you research the companies attending. Researching will help you form your strategy, demonstrate preparedness and ensure you make a positive first impression.
  2. Form your strategy based on those companies you really want to see.
  3. Recruiters are impressed with students who demonstrate familiarity with their organization, ask intelligent questions and explore fit.
  4. Have a well-written and concise resume.
  5. Professional dress attire highly recommended – Remember to look polished!
  6. Communication is important – introduce yourself and have a firm handshake and maintain eye contact.
  7. Prepare questions to ask the recruiters. Asking good questions shows genuine interest.
  8. Do not monopolize a company’s time.
  9. Ask for business cards to follow-up with a thank-you note via email to the recruiters you talked with.
  10. Practice your Elevator Speech – a short pitch that highlights your strengths and what distinguishes you from others.

Advisement Announcement

09-08-2017 @ 9:40am,

If you are advised by Prof Banning please note the following:

Appointment Plus is no longer working and the new system is not on-line.

To that end, I am starting the old-school paper signup process for registration for Spring 2018. Early registration starts November 8.

The sheets will be on my door starting tomorrow showing 30-minute time slots. There are 3o-minute slots for early night time students scheduled also.

The date range for signups will be September 18 - October 27 and Early Registration starts November 8.

There are approximately 155 slots for that date range which should be adequate for those students that can remember to sign up.

Also note if you were advised by Betsy Lowe (primarily freshman) will also advise with her for the Spring 2018 semester.

Senior Project Equipment

09-10-2008 @ 5:15pm,

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
