SA500 Recruiting Event--Apply Now!


#1 Engineer Recruiting Event on the East Coast: Oct 20, 2012 at NYSE

Silicon Alley 500 -- The #1 Tech Recruiting Event on the East Coast 

Be one of 500 select students to meet with  50 of the top East Coast-founded tech companies, from the so-called "Silicon Alley." This recruiting event was created with the purpose of showing talented engineering and computer science students that heading West isn't their only option for a prestigious and successful career.
This isn't a typical recruiting event: you have to apply to attend. Job-seekers (you) must be available for full-time employment within the next 12 months, and have prior hands-on engineering experience.
Held on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, not only is this event a great opportunity to connect with top companies right here on the East Coast, it's also a unique experience as you meet with CEO's and heads of engineering departments in person.

The event is taking place Saturday, October 20, 2012 in New York City. All engineering disciplines are welcome. Apply soon by going to http://www.nextjump.com/sa500.

STEM Teaching Fellowship Opportunity

Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships are available to graduating seniors (those who have received a bachelor's degree by June 30, 2013) who have majored in science, technology, engineering, or math. Recent grads and longer-term alumni are also eligible. The WW Teaching Fellowships prepare candidates to teach math and science in high-need high schools in Indiana, Michigan, or Ohio. (Applicants from all states are welcome.) The program admits you to a master's program in a partner university, provides you with a $30,000 stipend for your first year (after which you become a salaried teacher), and provides support and mentoring throughout the 3-year teaching commitment. Join a legacy that includes Nobel laureates while strengthening communities by passing on your excellence in education.

The early decision deadline is October 22, 2012. The final deadline is January 21, 2013

In his own words: Willie Roberson, '14, Political Science, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights intern

Willie Roberson, ’14, Political Science, interned this summer at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights in Washington, D.C. 

Working for The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights exposed me to a vast amount of civil and human rights issues facing the nation and how advocates work together to fight to protect these rights for all in living in America.

My immediate intern duties ranged from perusing newspapers and summarizing relevant articles to tracking legislation and attending congressional hearings to write on the impact of the subject matter discussed. I had an opportunity to organize events, network with others in the civil rights community and publish articles on behalf of the organization. I also helped staff members by conducting research for reports on current issues such as the American Community Survey, transportation equity in rural communities, and prison reform.

Because of my interest in access to affordable higher education for all, I was given the opportunity to create and produce a video on the implications of allowing Federal Stafford Student Loan interest rates to double during the looming legislative deadline earlier in the summer.

This lead to the opportunity to produce another video showcasing a DREAMer celebration in front of the White House. This video documented how young immigrant students felt after the President’s executive order stopping the deportation of undocumented high school students and graduates who have grown up in America illegally through no fault of their own.

As an intern class we had the opportunity to create and present our own event from scratch. With minimal help from staff, we developed all of the necessary materials, researched significant subject matter, invited speakers, and facilitated conversation with guests. The event was a complete success and I had the opportunity to learn and network with influential coalition members.

Megan DeWitt, '12, "You never know when someone will be able to help."


As a technical apprentice at environmental consulting firm Conestoga-Rovers & Associates, Megan DeWitt, ’12, worked on various projects this summer from hazardous waste disposal to landfill management. 


“I had different roles in each project depending on what stage the project was in,” says DeWitt, a chemical engineering major returning this fall for the TEAM program.

“Among other things, I wrote proposals for potential clients, filled out a permit application, and edited reports that demonstrated how we reached environmental protection regulations,” she says. “I mainly helped our clients remediate their sites to meet government regulations.”

DeWitt found her internship working with Gwen M. Greene Career and Internship Center Associate Director Laura Godwin.

“My junior year, Laura was helping me edit my résumé, and she noticed I had worked at a start-up company that developed biodegradable plant-based surfactants for environmental remediation,” she says.

Godwin connected her with an alumnus looking for students who were interested in interning at an environmental remediation subsidiary of a petroleum company. Although DeWitt ended up taking a different internship that summer, the important student-alumnus connection was made.

 “We had a great conversation about Rochester. He had the same major as me and we shared stories about some of the professors and our good times in Gavett Hall,” she says.

“Spring of senior year I was looking for an internship and called him up,” she says. “He ended up forwarding my resume onto CRA, who contacted me for an interview.  It made me realize how important networking is; you never know when someone will be able to help.”

DeWitt says her analytical skills and experience with Excel made her job at CRA much easier, but she wished she had a better understanding of the industry going into her internship.

“I originally thought I would be working in nature and cleaning up sites until there were absolutely no contaminants, but in reality that is rarely the case. Usually, the sites are old manufacturing sites (think asphalt not trees), and we clean them up enough to make them safe for people,” she says.

Another challenge was becoming familiar with the government regulations and environmental remediation jargon.

“Most of the people I worked with had been in the industry for years and had a lot of background knowledge that they took for granted. Everyone speaks in acronyms! By the end of the summer I was speaking in them, too,” she says.

Another new skill she picked up this summer? “I learned how to spray a fire extinguisher…I’ll let you guess why!”

Chris Faresich, '13, Extremity Medical Product Development Intern


Chris Faresich, ’13, Biomedical Engineering, is spending his summer interning at Extremity Medical, LLC, an orthopedic device company specializing in the hand, wrist, foot, and ankle. 

"I work in product development, where I design custom surgical instruments which adhere to the requests of surgeons. Then I order the prototypes and final products," he says. "Also, I assist in Operations and Quality Assurance by inspecting incoming parts, help with warehouse management, support XM in cadaver labs, and observe the implantation of XM devices in an operating room."

Faresich says his first day on the job included a visit to a cadaver lab where he assisted in the implantation of KinematX, an arthroplasty radiocarpal joint. He says his past experience in the operating room and cadaver labs prepared him well for what he saw.
