La Familia recruiting. A couple of our members went out to activiley recruit for our first major outreach event of the year. La Familia is an event designed to break the digital divide in the Hispanic community. This event is hosted by the University of Arizona and carried out by the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE/UA). The program aims to expose parents with limited resources to the advances of cyberspace and technology.
Start of the year recruiting. The new e-board went out to recruit for our chapter during the summer and at the beginning of the school year. We are always looking for new members to join our chapter and keep it full of life. The freshmen are the ones we usually activley recruit for to join our chapter, so that we can keep passing down the leadership from one generation to another.
Guests from companies like Raytheon, IBM, and Intel will tell you what your resume should look like; what kinds of things you should say at an interview; how to dress at a career fair; and will answer those tough questions you really want answered. To top it off, SHPE sponsored conferences are open for your taking!
We bring you experienced representatives who are behind study abroad, graduate school and internship opportunities. Learn what you have to do to set yourself up for academic success, from how you can prepare to how you can apply.
