Howdy! I sent an email earlier this week about some upcoming career development events for our students. Please remind your students about the LinkedIn/Interviewing/Salary Negotiation Workshop on October 16th at 5:30 in 113 AGLS. Also, please let your students know that they will have the opportunity to have their photo taken for their LinkedIn profile at this event. We found that many students don’t have a professional photo for their profile and we think this event will be a great opportunity for students to get that taken care of! We will start taking photos around 5:15 and will take as many as we can before the event. We will finish taking photos after the event.

Thank you for passing this along! 

First, a big Aggie WHOOP and congratulations to all of our August 2012 degree candidates. Graduation is a just a few days away!  J

Second, I hope everyone has been having a great summer. When you return, you will see that a new KINE building is going up across the street from our building. 



“The Agricultural and Natural Resources Policy (ANRP) Internship Program is one of the premier leadership opportunities at Texas A&M University. It allows students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to complete exciting internships in Washington, D.C., or Austin, Texas, for a semester while earning academic credit. Students who participate in the Washington, D.C., program work full-time on Capitol Hill for a member of the Texas Congressional Delegation, the House Committee on Agriculture, or other agencies that focus on agriculture or natural resources.” For more information, applications, criteria, etc., please go to http://agintern.tamu.edu/about/. The deadline to apply for Spring and Summer 2013 is noon on October 8, 2012.


“A distinctive feature of the ANRP Internship Program is that it not only allows students to learn about national policy, but also provides opportunities to experience state government firsthand. Students from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences are welcome and encouraged to apply for policy-related internships in Austin, Texas, every other year when the state legislature meets.” For more information, applications, criteria, etc., please go to http://agintern.tamu.edu/austin-internships/. The deadline to apply for Spring 2013 ANRP Austin is noon on October 15, 2012.
