Career Dazed

The past two days have been the annual ritual known as Career Days, during which the School of Design is like a crazed bear half-shot full of tranquilizers, lurching around madly pawing at itself. I exaggerate, but only a little. For graduating students, it's a time of dressing up and subjecting yourself to a speed-dating style of job interviews in 20-minute blocks. Studios are cleaned, portfolios put together, interview clothes bought.

This year, like last, a reasonably impressive spread of companies came by with jobs to offer: Apple, Microsoft, GE, Google, Motorola, Sapient, Razorfish, and Siegel + Gale to name a few. A number of the interviewers were CMU alumni returning to rescue more of us and give us hope.

The Last of the Goodbyes

A group of us gathered on Saturday night to bid the final farewell to departing alumni Kerry and Haven. They are heading to Boston: Kerry to work for Forrester Research and Haven at Catapult Thinking. On Friday, Mathilde left for the Bay Area, to go work at Ebay.

And I really do think that's the last of the departing. At least for now.

Rob Adams, Flasher

I should give a shout-out to recent CMU alumnus and frequent odannyboy commenter Rob Adams, who starts his job at Macromedia today as the usability specialist for Flash.
