 A few weeks ago, the Long Island Chapter of Project Management Institute sponsored an event on campus, 'What is Project Management and How Can It Help You in Your Career?' I didn't get to attend the event but was still able to receive the slides of the presentation from Hofstra. Below are some of the things I found useful from the slides of the presentation.

Teamwork and cooperation are highly regarded in school - business schools in particular - where you are very likely to work in a team of three or four on a project. “A project team often includes people who don't usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.” The processes fall into five groups:

Initiating

Planning

Executing

Monitoring/Controlling

Closing

In school, our team projects are usually not as complicated as those in companies, but they prepare us for the real world. We are more focused on multi-tasking and c

On a beautiful Wednesday, I am on my way to the Office of Human Resources to send in an overdue timesheet. It's spring-cleaning time, and apparently I need to be efficient in tidying up my room and to find where my other time-sheets are. Surprisingly, I saw a fruit and vegetable market outside of the Mack Student Center and saw crowds of people getting food and chatting. I sat for a while and watched what people were getting. Corn! Strawberries! I am happy that I found this market because I am going to do some grocery shopping for this week! After I dropped off my timesheet, I joined the group of happy faces and got myself two ears of corn, two potatoes and four tomatoes. These fresh veggies made my day! I boiled the corn right when I get back to my apartment.

This week Earth Day is being celebrated on campus and worldwide. Earth Day promotes protecting our environment, which is always a good cause, right?

Summer is almost here, and you will need a place to stay during your summer internship, right? Below is some advice to help you find summer housing.

If you're staying in Long Island or the Hofstra University area, offcampushousing.hofstra.edu is a good source to look at. If you want to live in Manhattan for the summer, there are opportunities to find people who already live there and you can sublease, meaning rent a room from them temporarily. Sharing apartments lower the cost of rent. Keep in mind that summer activities will require you to spend money, and your internship might not be paying enough for all the fun, so saving money wherever you can will be very helpful.When looking for housing, keep in mind that convenience of transportation and area safety come first. Also, be aware that some apartment rentals require you to sign up with an agency and you may need to pay an agency fee before you move in. If you have a vast network of people who already had experiences in ren

On a beautiful day, I interviewed Yina Peng, a student enrolled in the TESOL program outside the Student Center Café. She had just come from the Spring Career Fair. Yina started the TESOL program in the fall of 2014 and is graduating this May.  

The first question I throw out to her is which TESOL course seemed most difficult to her. She admitted that it was SED 267, Second Education. She mentioned that this course required her to be familiar with the K-12 education system curriculum, which was challenging because some of her classmates were already certified teachers before entering the program. Without much teaching experience in the United States, Yina had a more difficult time comprehending the course as compared to her American classmates. However, she was able to achieve a high GPA at the end of last semester. Her favorite course is Studies in Etymology, which is about the Latin origin of English language. “

It is the time for students to perform their best and get ready to look for their dream jobs!


The other day I attended the MBA/MS Corporate Summer Internship Panel held in the Student Center and hosted by Graduate Business Career Services (GBCS). I am so glad I went in the midst of a busy and overwhelming week. I definitely gained some insight and reconnected with a few friends whom I seldom get to see. Representatives from CVS Health, AvalonBay Communities, Lifetime Brands, 1-800-Flowers.com, Bedgear, and MSC Industrial Direct introduced their companies with videos and speeches. There was a 30-minute round-table Q&A session afterwards.

 

To summarize, all of the companies that presented offer summer internship programs, and some companies also offer fall internship programs, as well. 1-800-flowers.com specifically wants candidates who are interested in and good at social media. Bedgear wants students who really fit into their corp

This Friday, I decided to take a train to Manhattan despite the windy weather. I ordered a white mocha in Caffé Bene on 32nd and then sat down to review the Driver's Manual and Practice Tests on the DMV website one last time. After about two hours in the café, I took a taxi to the DMV on 366 W 31st Street and started my Learner's Permit test. The whole testing process was orderly and fast as long as you followed the guidance of instructors.

Then this is how my day looked like after I finished the permit test: in the noon, I met with someone uptown for lunch. Around 2:30pm, I went on to meet with a U of Chicago contact in a Starbucks on the first floor of JP Morgan Chase Tower. Close to 6pm, I was ready to go for another scheduled event on my google calendar and started to shop for a cocktail dress in Grand Central for Unicareer 3rd Annual Conference because the entrance ticket through email as short notice. The Annual Conference was held in Penn Club on 44th

I grew up in a southern city in China. I started to travel a lot at the age of 20 and was inspired by the idea of living and studying in the United States. Met and talked to many people who already traveled more than I did and had many international experiences, I made plans and executed them, and in 2005 I moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. My parents didn't know where exactly on earth I was going only to comprehend that the United States is a very distant country. They felt that I might miss home a lot so they bought me lots of stuff to pack into my two gigantic travel cases.

To live in a foreign country is not that bad. Instead, I think that I like the great deal of freedom associated with living by oneself. Also, my shopping and dining habits gradually changed after living in USA for long.

Sometimes, nostalgia hits me really severely I have to go shopping and cook some of my favorite food back home. One traditional dish I love is lotus boiled with seaweed a

As I promised, I will be writing about informational interviews and networking in this post. A definite introvert, I am going to admit that I was very nervous the first time I went on a coffee meeting with an alum. I was worried about what to wear (business casual? a formal suit? or simply jeans?), what to talk about (should I ask as many questions as possible or should I be tactic?) and what to watch out. Fortunately, most of my alumni are very nice individuals and I was able to make connections which last for more than a few years. Last week, I was able to reconnect with a Goldman Sachs high-yield bond trader who is willing to pass around my resume to hedge fund people she knows in Asia. When sometimes you don't believe that you will be so lucky to end up in investment banking or management consulting especially when you experience difficulties in job search process, maybe you will believe in the power of networking when people still recognize your face and remember you from your res

Ok…I have so much to say for today’s topic because I am a Zarb first-year student! For any business major, to secure a job upon graduation is, if not THE most important goal, one of the most important goals while in school. I myself am actively looking for summer internships as well as full-time opportunities. My past experiences include working for an investment bank on Wall Street, a privately held company in my hometown Wuhan, a summer school in Shanghai and a NYC-based nonprofit organization. I also worked for campus jobs when I was studying in college. Thinking that I will be competing with thousands of other business graduates, I feel the butterflies in my stomach. It is never easy to read the generic rejection letter again and again: “Thank you for your interest in us. Due to a high volume of talented candidates and limited number of available positions, we are unable to move forward with your candidacy at this time. We wish you the best of luck in your career search. - Since
