Subject: Searching for jobs? Updated LinkedIn profile?

Forum: Searching for jobs? Updated LinkedIn profile?
Hey all,

I have been trying to get an internship opportunity for the summer and one of the very first thing I had to do was to hone my resume and LinkedIn profile. So how about you guys, do you keep an updated LinkedIn profile always or just when you are looking for a job?

Are any of you currently looking for jobs or internships? Have you tried the LinkedIn premium? Any tips for job search, contacting recruiters and building profile ?

I hope this forum helps all those who are looking for summer internship or other full-time opportunities and will be graduating this semester and yet to land a job. Thanks in advance for all your suggestions.

Have a happy weekend :)

Forum: What is your daily morning routine?
Hey Kyle,

My daily morning routine is pretty much like yours as well. But then I'm even lazier. I sometimes sleep in so late that I have to skip breakfast. There have been days when I have to just brush my teeth and go, so like Regina I do take a bath before hitting the sack the previous night.

Nowadays, I'm surprising myself with a newer low. Sometimes, when I think that I can't sit through class fully without having breakfast or am too sleepy, I just sleep back in and wake up later in the afternoon and watch the lecture as it gets uploaded online. Well, the main reason for my disrupted morning routine is that I just am a night owl and not sleeping in the night has its own negative impact I should say on the start of the next day. I'm trying to change this though.


Subject: Re: What other Scholarship opportunities do you take?

Forum: What other Scholarship opportunities do you take?
Hey all,

I have one other scholarship other than CollegeNet. It's Achievement Award Scholarship for New Engineering Graduate Students that includes a partial tuition waiver awarded in view of outstanding credentials exhibited during undergraduate degree. It's provided by Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at UF and amounts to $4500 ($1500 per semester for 3 semesters). This I could get due to my performance in undergrad being meritorious and only a few of us got this one.

But even after deducting the scholarship amount, I still have a large fee to pay. What really helps then is the fact that I'm trying for scholarships at CNet which I feel is one of the best opportunities for scholarships.


Subject: Re: Amazon Prime

Forum: Amazon Prime
Hey Alex,

I somehow am not using Amazon a lot these days. During my undergrad I used to have an Amazon Prime subscription but then nowadays I find Walmart cheaper and better for my needs as they have this option of pickup which can be faster than Amazon at times, like same day pick up which I think is cool for people like me who are lazy and impatient to wait and have a tight schedule.

I still use Amazon but a bit sparingly, in fact the laptop that I'm typing from right now was bought from Amazon only.

Forum: What is your favorite Pie?
Hey Jenelu,

My favorite pie would have to be the mushroom spinach pie. It's just so delicious from a shop I used to buy, a french shop called 'AuroBakes'. I remember this specially because my English mam used to make a variant of this with sweet corn added too and used to come give us in our hostel while I was doing my undergrad. The love with which she used to cook foods and give is just overwhelming.
