Undergraduate Announcements 5/13/16



1)  Congratulations to all of our graduating seniors!  I'm so proud of you all and I'm looking forward to seeing you in your robes on Monday! 


2)  Just a reminder that just because a petition is approved (ex:  for taking a course in MSE), Mech Eng cannot offer you a guarantee that you will get into the course in question.  That is completely up to the department who owns the course or if there is enough room for you in the course if others have priority.


3)  Check out this ME 102B project video.  It's pretty fun!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOg76FKykSY


4)  Most of you know this, but, just in case you don't, I'm here for the most of the summer.  Feel free to reach out with your questions.




Callisto is transitioning to Handshake!

As an important partner in student career development, we want to inform you of an exciting transition we're making.  On June 1st, the Career Center will be adopting a new dynamic recruitment platform, known as Handshake.  Handshake is a contemporary job and career planning software that will help UC Berkeley talent find highly competitive opportunities such as top internships and full-time jobs.


Handshake will allow students to create dynamic profiles in order to connect directly with companies who actively recruit on our campus.  Outside of formal recruiting, they will also gain access to a variety of career resources, read blogs or find out about events that increase their knowledge about the world of work, providing them with clarity about career options available to them.  


Students have all been sent our FAQ page.  


Our Go Live date is June 1st and we will plan to do a much more intentional student campaign around this new transition as we gear up for the fall semester.


Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for the latest information!  #StayTuned #CalShakesItUp #ChangeIsNow
