College can be a great experience—striking out on your own, experiencing life and making new friends, accumulating knowledge and skills that will help you succeed for the rest of your life. And, the high accessibility of technology has made it easier than ever to get done what you need to get done with your school work so that you can go out and have fun. Laptops, tablets and smartphones have allowed students to be able to bring their school with them wherever they go, allowing for research anytime as well as immediate communication through software like Facebook and Skype.

With increased flexibility, and mobility comes an increase in potential for accidents with your technology as well. It used to be that everything was done on paper and kept safe in your room or dorm, and if you needed a computer you went to the computer lab which would allow you to work, store, and print your documents with ease. The influx of laptops into the college world has introduced new variables to common scenarios that you need to be aware of and watch out for. (more…)

How Climate Change Effects the Job Market

This week, Cargill Beef announced that it will be shuttering one of its Texas plants as a prolonged drought in the state thins cattle herds to their lowest levels in 60 years. The closure will force the plant’s 2,000 workers to relocate to one of the company’s other plants or find employment elsewhere.

This is not the first time climate change has impacted jobs and it will not be the last, according to workplace authority John A. Challenger, chief executive officer of global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. Challenger forecasts that the impact of climate change on the economy and employment will only increase in the years to come. “Agriculture could be the biggest victim of changing weather patterns brought on by climate change. We are no longer an agriculture-based economy, but the sector still employs between 150,000 and 250,000 workers, depending on the time of year. The other area that could feel pain related to climate change is tourism. Ski resorts in Colorado are already seeing the effects of less snowfall. Not only are skiers seeking deeper powder further north, but the resorts are spending a lot more making artificial snow.” (more…)

Career Fair Do’s and Don’ts

CollegeRecruiter.comCareer fairs give college students opportunities to make contact with employers who are looking to hire the best and brightest individuals.  However, you don’t want to show up to a career fair without a plan.  I believe the following post will better prepare you for this invaluable experience.

Pin It

It’s that time of year– the college career fair circuit is in full effect. One of the goals of the Viacom College Relations team is to spread awareness about our internship program. In the fall, we travel to a variety of college campuses every week to find talented students (like you).

It’s always rewarding to meet students in person, hear about their passions, and tell them about the great opportunities they have ahead of them. Some of the young people we meet really blow us away, but unfortunately that’s not always the case. It’s easy to make a great impression if you follow a few rules. This is why I feel it’s important to outline the do’s and don’ts of career fairs.
