Externship deadline extended!

Hey everyone, the externship deadline has extended to Wednesday, November 30, 2011 at 8am. Don’t miss out on your chance to shadow a UC Berkeley alumnus (or alumna) during your winter break.

Ever since my freshmen year, I have shadowed our Berkeley alumni every winter break. As an extern, it is the perfect chance to experience the job environment and to realize first hand whether that career is a fit for you. Hurry and check out all the externships at https://career.berkeley.edu/CareerApps/Externship/Students/ExternshipListing.aspx

If you are wondering what I did these past two years, feel free to swing by during my office hours and I would be more than happy to share my externship experiences.

The difference between major advisors, college adviors, and faculty advisors

A major advisor specializes in a particular major. My major is Nutritional Science. If I have questions about the nutritional science coursework, graduation requirements, or department policies I would see Melissa Pon (the major advisor for Nutritional Science).

Similar to how a declared student would go to a major advisor for advising, an undeclared student in CNR would talk to a CNR college advisor for advising.

I know that some majors do not have a faculty advisor, but for Nutritional Science our major does have a faculty advisor and I visit my faculty advisor if I have questions about research in general. I also see my faculty advisor for Tele-Bears before I see my major advisor.

Planning out Summer/Fall Schedule

As Telebear appointments are approaching quickly, now might be a good time to bookmark schedule.berkeley.edu
