Career Week 2000 kicks off today with a reception for students interested in learning how to make the fair work for them. Bring a copy of your résumé for tips and critiques on how to improve its presentation, learn how to network with potential employers and develop the skills to sell yourself in one minute. Participants will also be able to take advantage of the Career Services resources and meet with more than 200 local and national employers. The fair starts at noon in the basement of Old Main. Contact Susan Miller at 621-1408 for more information.
Like to fish? Here's your chance to learn the dynamics behind international fishing. Ferenc Szidarovszky, a systems and industrial engineering professor, will be discussing how a monopoly can affect the international fish stock. Szidarovszky will examine and compare theoretical models and offer an analysis of international fishing. Sound confusing? Maybe you should just go to the seminar, which will be held in Room 301 of the Engineering Building. And if you still don't understand the concept behind the international fish stock, at least you'll get some free refreshments out of it. The lecture starts at 2 p.m.
If fishing isn't your thing, maybe you should swing by Social Sciences tonight for a screening of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure." This classic 80s flick is guaranteed to not make you think, but rather holding your stomach from so much laughter. The movie only costs $2.50, much less than renting it, and you get to see it on the big screen. Be in Room 100 of Social Sciences for this midnight viewing.
