Busy time of the year!

This is one of the busiest times of the year for me with a ton of birthdays in my family and among friends, and the semester is really starting to crack down! Sometime I wonder why it is that all my professors have tests and assignments starting all around the same time, and then all due around the same time! :( I will admit it, I am a bit stressed...But that's what college is about! Making your way through it all! I am still waiting for that grand day though...May 14, 2009! :)

Corrections Fair!!

I just found out some very exciting news, for myself anyways!! Ramsey County is hosting a Career/Resource Fair for all of the Twin Cities counties on Saturday, February 28th, 11am-4pm! It is located where I did my internship!! Which is Boys Totem Town, a residential correctial facility for juvenile boys. I plan on attending and I am SO excited to visit the people I worked with and walk in that building again, I miss it SO much. So, if you are interested in working with corrections such as a case manager, parole officer, therapist....you should attend! :)

Job and Internship Fair Update

I attended the U of MN Job and Internship fair yesterday and it was very helpful! Although I think I went at the wrong time because it was SUPER busy and the lines were long, when I was done everything was much shorter! Everyone that was working the fair was very professional and all the students and alumni were dressed up all business-like, I enjoyed that! There were a few organizations/companies that I was really interested in and that I visited. I would like to share these with you, especially if you are a Family Social Science student or a prospective student!

Some of the great organizations/companies were:
ACR Homes
Admission Possible
AmeriCorps in Minnesota
Department of Health and Human Services
fahrenHEIGHT360
Fraser
Goodwill/Easter Seals
Hennepin County
Homeward Bound
MN Autism center
MN Department of Corrections
MN Council of Nonprofits
PeaceCorps
St. Joseph Worker Program
YMCA/YWCA of Minneapolis

...There were many more at the fair but these are the one that are most related to Family Social Science that I got more information on! If you are interested in any of these companies I strongly urge you to google them to do a little research. I know they all have internships and 280 hours of an internship is required for graduation!! :)

Job and Internship Fair!

Tomorrow the U of MN is hosting a Job and Internship Fair at the Minneapolis Convention Center! I plan on attending in hopes of getting some information about full time employment after I graduate! Some nice things about this is that it is just for U of MN students, there is a complete list of employers, jobs, and contact information on their website here, it's free, and transportation is provided! There will be buses from Coffman Union straight to the Convention Center which is one of the best parts of it for me tomorrow! So, if you can you should try to attend the Job and Internship fair because, as you can see, there are many employers and representatives that will be there waiting to talk to us!
