LinkedIn Training For Anyone

October 16th, 2018 MIKC 104

LinkedIn Training

In today’s environment of social media, it is important to manage your online profile.  In this seminar, you will be introduced to how one can manage LinkedIn profiles to present what potential employers are looking for in a professional and concise manner.  The training will cover the following tabs:

* Home * My Network * Jobs * Messages * Notifications * Me (Profile) * Work *Premium Services

In addition, we will cover how to vet invitations, who to invite into your circle, resumes (profiles), and related social media such as Facebook.  This is a high-level introduction designed to get you get started and avoid common mistakes.  LinkedIn training is the primary focus of this meeting and the training is open to anyone.

ASME-UNR/ASME-Comstock Meeting

After the LinkedIn training, which we expect to be over by 7:00 PM, there will be a meeting of ASME-UNR and ASME-Comstock members to discuss student concerns.  Interested individuals are welcome to remain.  This second meeting will present students with an opportunity to ask questions about ASME and professional societies in general.  We expect the primary topics to revolve around why students should join ASME and what the local ASME-Comstock chapter can do to augment what UNR already provides.

Where:             Room 104 in the Knowledge Center

When:              Tuesday October 16th, 2018.  We have the room reserved from 5:30 – 8:00 PM

You will not need to bring a computer, but please feel free to do so if you wish.  Attendees are welcome to attend both or either event.  We are tentatively limiting attendance to 24.

Please RSVP to Joel Blumenthal at perceptualfocus@gmail.com.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Uncategorized No Comments »

The Undergraduate Research Office has three competitive research awards with Fall 2018 application deadlines:

  • Pack Research Experience Program (PREP) for freshmen and sophomores due Oct. 22
  • Community -based for research that helps an organization in our community, due Oct. 29
  • Nevada Undergraduate Research for students to fund their own proposed research, due Nov. 12

Our office distributes ~$300,000 in undergraduate research awards each year, and our greatest challenge is in reaching students to increase the number of applicants. All of our applicants must have a faculty mentor, so it is important for faculty to be aware of these opportunities and the possibility of mentoring a student.
