Big Sibling Program (Extended Deadline)
Hey Cal Poly SWE,
Hope everyone is having a great summer thus far! I am emailing to ask everyone to please consider becoming a Big Sibling in our Big Sibling/Little Sibling Program! This program requires very little time commitment and has been a lot of fun in the past. During the first week of August, we will pair you up with an incoming freshman or transfer female engineering student who is preferably in your major. Throughout the year, you will be their "Big Sibling" sending them encouraging emails at times, like before finals and giving them advice if they ask questions. There will also be a couple of fun sibling outings that we will plan, and you can also plan some of your own with them.
Please consider helping out SWE and the incoming female students in your major!
All we need from you right now is your name, email address, phone number, maximum siblings you would be willing to mentor and major. You can also tell us some of your hobbies if you would like! **CIVIL, ARCE, BRAE, ELECTRICAL, AERO Big Siblings in high demand. Please invite friends who may be interested!**
Please respond by Thursday, August 4, 2011 if you would like to be involved.
We will be in contact with you as the summer progresses. Big Sibling/Little Sibling pairings will be made this weekend (by August 6th) and we will also send out a design for an optional T-shirt that can be purchased!
Thank you for your help!

Job Opportunity: New Graduates – Baker Hughes
Think you know what it’s like to work in the oil industry? Think again.
Many misconceptions exist about what it’s like to work in oilfield services, such as it’s a man’s profession, life as an engineer is all number-crunching, and working in an oilfield puts your life in danger. Baker Hughes is actively breaking down these stereotypes, and seeking out graduates who are looking for an exhilarating career.
At Baker Hughes, you could start your career on an offshore oil rig, work remotely in the desert, or perhaps join a technology center. Graduates who enter our LEAD program are trained to use some of the most sophisticated and innovative technologies in the world.
Consider applying to Baker Hughes; we think you'll be surprised. For more information and to apply online, please visit: http://jobs.bakerhughes.com/grads

Internship Opportunity: SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
This new program for 2011 is designed to provide underrepresented groups in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, a year-long research/employment experience in each of our five major divisions. The program is intended for post-graduate candidates with the longer-term objective of potentially moving them into regular employment with the lab.
The SLAC STEM Diversity Internship (SSDI) provides practical experience in mission critical job groups with the expressed objective of bridging education and professional work experience for underrepresented groups. Each Directorate will identify such an opportunity and will work with Human Resources Workforce Development and Recruiting to identify candidates for this program. This paid internship will be funded through a cost sharing plan, whereby Human Resources and the Directorate will each provide $30,000 of the intern’s salary.
Candidates must have completed their undergraduate, graduate or doctorate program (depending on the identified position) and be a U.S. citizen or documented resident alien. Further, their career aspirations must lie within the scope of employment opportunities available at SLAC.
For more information about the SLAC, please visit: www.slac.stanford.edu.
