Center for Career & Calling Meet Ups Next Week

October 22nd, 2015 § 0

The CCC will be sponsoring three Employer Meet Ups next week. What’s a meet up? It’s an informal gathering of people who share a particular interest and have connected with each other through a social-networking website.

But you don’t have to be networked already; you can just walk up and meet with a career counselor, employer, and other students who share your interests/concerns. You get to have a conversation, learn about employment resources, and gain support for a job search, now or in the future.

Here are the employers attending and times/places for the meet ups:

Alaska Airlines Magazine –
Tuesday, Oct 27
3:00 – 4:00 pm
Weter Lounge

Peace Corps –
Wednesday, Oct 28
3:00 – 4:00 pm
Weter Lounge

Horn of Africa –
Thursday, Oct 29
3:00 – 4:00 pm

Gabe Much Performs the Complete Works of Shakespeare

October 15th, 2015 § 0

Some explanation is in order! Gabe (English major, Class of 2014) starred in a production of a play called The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) at the Shorecrest Performing Arts Center in Shorecrest, WA last weekend, not all of the Bard’s plays. Gabe describes The Complete Works as follows: “three guys, one dead playwright, and 37 plays, all in under two hours.”

Quite the feat, and one in keeping with Gabe’s work as a young actor and much more; there’s nothing abridged about his aspirations. “Briefly,” says Gabe, no doubt intending the irony, “I’m pursuing performance in music, circus arts, and acting, with a day (night) job at Teatro Zinzanni,” a Seattle dinner theatre along the lines of Cirque du Soleil. “It’s a wild ride,” he concludes.

Hang on tight, Gabe, and best of luck with your career.
