The ninth annual OSBEELS Symposium is quickly approaching and we will once again be hosting the College Student Showcase at this year’s event. Similar to prior years, we’re inviting all of our state’s ABET-accredited programs and student engineering and land surveying-related clubs to participate and showcase the great work done by students. We’re extending invitations to student clubs, research teams, campus organizations, and program ambassadors to join this event.
This year’s Symposium will take place on Friday, Sept. 13, at the Salem Convention Center. The event’s program will feature presentations on a wide range of engineering and land surveying topics. We’re planning on having the College Student Showcase event take place during the afternoon portion of the event. There is no cost to host a booth and lunch will be included.
Our Board feels the showcase is a great opportunity for students to display their work, converse with professionals, and learn more about the work being done in our state. Students are invited to arrive early to set up their booths, enjoy lunch, and remain at the event following the College Student Showcase program should they wish too. Please let me know if you have a student group interested in participating!
A GISCI/USGS collaboration seeks to bring students trained in GIS to USGS for internship opportunities. The cooperative program works like this:
Students who have registered on the GISCI site and have started filling out a Portfolio Application (all for free) with us are eligible to have their names forwarded to the USGS in October to be considered for GIS Internship positions that will be created and filled in the following calendar year.
First, in late September, GISCI sends out an email to all GISCI-registered students who wish to be considered for a USGS Internship position the following year. Students must opt-in to be considered, and this process of early consideration by the USGS does not mean the certainty of a position.
After a review of the student, with regard to the details of their GISCI profile and portfolio, academic excellence, and activities, those who the USGS finds the most desirable are invited to send an official application for those positions available.
Students are encouraged to start the Portfolio application process *NOW* and fill out the information to the fullest extent their career information allows. GISCI would also encourage any student to have started and maintain a LinkedIn profile, as this has become an important professional platform for recognition.
