27th Annual Job and Internship Fair

NYIT’s Office of Career Services held its 27th Annual Job and Internship Fair on Thursday, April 8 from 12:00 - 4:00 pm at the Old Westbury campus.

On an Internship Site Visit- A Grad Assistant’s Perspective

By Archana Srinivasan I came to work last Tuesday thinking that it was going to be just another day at work, but little did I know that my supervisor had something exciting planned for the day. She told me that we were going on a site visit to the Associated Press to meet the supervisor of our student Intern working there. My excitement level shot up a little bit, as I had no idea of what happens on a site visit; this was my first one.  We managed to reach the office of AP in Manhattan making it through the… More

Winning

The division one coaching merry go round is traveling at light speed.  Fired here, moved there, renegotiate everywhere.  With all the chatter and movement I never hear one AD, coach, or sports analyst talk about academics. I guess it has no value in this part of the education paradigm.  It is not surprising given the nature of what seems to be the priority of big time college sports, but it is alarming.  It is amazing that alumni, the ones that have graduated, will badger and threaten universities over wins and losses and not the graduation rates and the social welfare of student-athletes.  Those issues… More

Reliable Nutrition Information??

There is wonderful nutrition information available from so many places but it's often difficult to discern what's reliable and what is scientifically unsound. One of my favorite sources is the Nutrition Action Health Letter that is published by the Center for Science in the Public Interest for more than 30 years. Although this organization has been called the "Food Police" for bringing to the public's attention shocking nutrition facts about foods in your supermarket and restaurant, every other month they feature the nutrition story that is the most talked about in the nutrition world. The articles, many of which are archived on the website,… More

Technology

There was a time, not so long ago, when you had to wait for the next day to find out the scores of your favorite teams. Today, wait has been eviscerated because of technology, we now have instant results.... Websites, ESPN,  & smart phones have closed the geographic landscape to a narrow stretch of ingenuity that has allowed us to be connected at an almost instantaneous rate of connection.  While this has been a marvelous development for mankind it has also come with a plethora of challenges and new problems that we must address.  Technology has allowed us to stay connected and reconnect with family and friends… More

Taking the Internship Certificate Program on the Road to Boston

Adrienne Mc Nally, Professor Michael Gregorek and I went to Boston during Spring Break to present at the national Cooperative Education and Internship Association conference.  I had the pleasure of first presenting with Michael on the successes we have had in collaborating on our two programs--the School of Management's Professional Enrichment Program and the Career Services Internship Certificate Program.   In true Michael style he was the star of the show.  40 audience participants laughed in between nodding their heads in disbelief of his successful outreach to students and professionals alike.  They were captivated by not only Michael's energetic delivery, (at one point he was on both… More

Spirit

We got a taste of spring this weekend.  It was nice to bask in the glow of a spring afternoon while watching the Bears compete.  Softball rebounded taking three out of four, baseball took it on the chin coming out on the short side a a three game slugfest, and lacrosse went on a eight hour bus ride to win in OT.  With all the outdoor action going on I managed to have the time to witness a new conference initiative on Saturday.  The East Coast Conference sponsored a Spirit Showcase at Molloy College.  Cheerleaders and dance groups from colleges on LI… More

Crap Detection 101

Was President Barack Obama born in the United States?  Does the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommend a vegan diet for infants?  As the inventor of the WWW, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, recently commented, “the Internet does not have an IQ.”  Consider for a moment that close to 90% of university students begin their research using a search engine, and that less than 1% of all searchers travel past the first page of results.  The implications are enormous… No less problematic is that more and more of today’s information is delivered un-authorized.  In the past, scholars, editors, publishers and librarians… More
