Yesterday, we hosted the Boise State Career Services Work U Mixer at our Ten Mile branch. Our intern, Kaitlyn, planned, developed, and executed the event for her co-hosts. This event allowed Work U mentors and mentees to connect with one another and practice their networking skills. Way to go, Kaitlyn, for putting together such a great event! 🎉 🙌

Last week, Erica Dhawan, author of Digital Body Language and co-author of the bestselling book Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence, published an essay in Medium's work publication about the unique digital communication issues faced by the micro-generation between 1980 and 1985. It made international news and triggered over 15,000 retweets. Mostly due to the term "geriatric millennial." Some people had fun with the term and others were offended by it. Others suggested less quarrelsome monikers, such as Xennials, Elder Millennials, and the Oregon Trail Generation.

Whatever you call them, this micro-generation is important and unique because kids of the early ’80s spent their formative years on both sides of the analog and digital divide, and play a crucial role in helping bridge the communication gaps between the adapters and natives.

In the webinar Digital Body Language: Collaborate Faster and Further on June 3, Erica Dhawan combines cutting-edge research with engaging storytelling to break down why this generation is crucial. Additionally, Dhawan will decode the new signals and cues that have replaced traditional body language across genders, generations, and cultures. You will learn your collaboration style and the digital body language signals you may be broadcasting, how to develop a collaboration strategy that fosters valuable relationships, and how to end cultures of useless meetings, missed deadlines, and digital misunderstandings.

Read her essay in Medium at https://index.medium.com/why-the-hybrid-workforce-of-the-future-depends-on-the-geriatric-millennial-6f9ff4de1d23.

Today’s FAQ Friday is all about your Work U application. The process may seem intimidating, but we’re here to help! Here are the top, most important tips straight from the folks who review the applications.

1.) First, let's get the basic info out of the way. Apply using the online application found at boisestate.edu/career/work-u.
2.) Don’t be afraid to apply no matter what your experience level is. Work U exists to help you gain professional experience, so lack of formal professional experience actually makes your application stronger.
3.) On the application, you can select up to 3 opportunities you're interested in. To increase your odds of being placed, select 3.
4.) Fully answer each question on the application - about a paragraph per question. Double check for errors. They're looking for candidates with a strong sense of purpose - make sure you clearly explain how this will benefit you and your career goals.
5.) Make sure you have a good resume. This is a perfect opportunity to check out the resume resources that are on our website! Once you've been placed, your resume will go to the employer to approve your placement.

There are still several opportunities left for spring - get your application in by Monday, November 21 to get your Work U experience!

Round 2 of Work U applications for spring is open now through November 21. But... what even is Work U?

Work U is an internship program run by Boise State that’s a bit different from a traditional internship.

Instead of looking for your own internship, you can apply to Work U, tell us which of the opportunities you’re interested in, and we’ll place you somewhere that best fits your career goals. You can be considered for every opportunity no matter what your major is. You'll also have a weekly class with a career advisor who's there to help you get the most out of your internship.

There are still 23 opportunities left for spring. See them here: https://www.boisestate.edu/career/work-u/opportunities/

Need professional experience? Boise State's Work U program is a great way to get started. Your Work U internship doesn't have to be related to your major, and you don't need prior experience. For spring 2023, we have over 50 opportunities in areas including human resources, communication, marketing, philanthropy, finance, procurement, human services, sustainability, and project management.

Unlike a traditional internship where you apply directly to the employer, with Work U you apply to the program and tell us which opportunities you're interested in, and we'll place you into an opportunity that fits your goals. You'll also have a professional mentor, and weekly support from a career advisor to help you make the most of your experience.

See all the spring opportunities at: https://www.boisestate.edu/career/work-u/opportunities/

To increase your chances of getting placed into your top choice opportunity, apply by this Wednesday, Oct. 26. While you can still apply after that, we'll start placing people then, so your top choices might get filled.

Walking into a career fair can be super intimidating, especially if it's your first one. We're here to calm your nerves by letting you know what to expect tomorrow.

Checking in:
- You can check in at either ballroom - Jordan or Simplot. BUT, we are not using the main entrance to the Simplot. You'll find the check-in table at the side entrance, the one that is straight down the hall from the Jordan.
- Bring your student ID card to swipe (otherwise you'll have to type your number).
- A name tag will be printed for you. Wear it! This is really helpful to the employers.

Getting around:
- After you check in, you'll be offered a career fair map. Next to the name of each employer or school, you'll see a number which corresponds to a table on the map.
- Employers and schools whose name starts with A-M will be in the Jordan. N-Z will be in the Simplot.
- Still lost? Just ask someone at the check-in table or the Career Services table for help finding the organization you're looking for.

Approaching a table:
- Don't be afraid to walk right up and introduce yourself. They're here because they want to meet you! Don't forget to smile, which will make you seem enthusiastic and interested in talking to them.
- You'll feel more confident if you think through ahead of time what you want the employer to know about you. Which pieces of info are most important/relevant to share when you first introduce yourself?

What to wear:
- There's no dress code or requirements to get into the career fair. But if you want to impress the employers (which is definitely important if you're searching for a job or internship!), it's a good idea to dress like you would for an interview.
- Don't forget we're doing free professional headshots at the fair, so also think about how you want to look in your photo when choosing what to wear. There will be a separate check-in table inside the Simplot Ballroom for headshots.

Opportunity alert: Meet Tyson, who graduated from Boise State in 2019 with a BS in Chemistry and is now an analytical scientist at Agropur’s Protein Research Center. Agropur will be recruiting at the Career and Graduate School Fair on October 19.

After graduation, Tyson worked as an R&D intern in Agropur's Jerome, Idaho plant, which led to him obtaining his current position two years later. He had such a great experience with Agropur that he made the decision to move from Idaho to Minnesota for an awesome opportunity to work in the Protein Research Center.

His job consists of a combination of conducting analytical testing as well as research projects. Routine testing consists of bench chemistry as well as instrumental analysis to determine the chemical composition of various products. The research aspect is focused on the development and validation of analytical testing methods for new product types or new components of interest.

Tyson’s favorite part of working for Agropur is the emphasis on research, development, and innovation. It gives him the opportunity to utilize his background as a chemist and think outside of the box to develop creative solutions to analytical problems. Tyson also really enjoys the opportunity to get outside of the lab and learn more about the processing, engineering, and food science that takes place in the various production plants.

Come meet Agropur on October 19!

We have big news to share. The Boise State Career and Graduate School Fair is coming on October 19, and it will be the LARGEST career fair EVER in Boise State history. It is going to be so big that we can't fit all the employers in one ballroom, so this semester it'll be in both the Jordan and Simplot ballrooms. We're also working on bringing back free professional headshots for the first time since the pandemic.

You'll hear a lot more about this event over the next 3 weeks, but for now there are a couple more things we want you to know.

1. You should go to the career fair every year, not just when you're getting ready to graduate. That's right, we said every year. Whatever you need right now, whether that's a career, internships, connections, or information, the career fair should be a part of your career preparation plan each year.

2. Preparation matters. Watch for information about what to do before the career fair to ensure your success.

In today's FAQ we reveal a little-known secret about Handshake profiles. We get it - you're busy, and Handshake just won't stop bugging you about completing your profile. Do you really need to?

While you're not required to complete your profile to use Handshake, you SHOULD, and here's why.

Employers look at your profile.

When you apply to a job, sign up for an on-campus interview, or RSVP for an employer event, the employer will often look at your profile for more information about you, so make sure it'll impress them.

Did you know employers are also searching for YOU? By having a completed profile, employers matching your interests can find you and reach out about opportunities.
