Upcoming Events

There are several PUMA events on the calendar for the next month.  Below you will find information about all of them:

Southwest Airlines Visit - 10/18/12 5:45 & 6:30pm HAMP 4251
Some recruiters from Southwest will be coming to talk to us about working for them. This is obviously a great opportunity for anyone looking for a summer internship or full time employment. Even if you have no interest in Southwest, this will be a good opportunity to learn about jobs in the private sector, and to practice talking to recruiters.
There will be two separate 45 minute sessions starting at 5:45 and 6:30 pm.


EAPS Graduate School Panel - 10/24/12 6:30pm HAMP 3201
 Come listen to grad students, professors, and even the head of our department as they talk about graduate school. This is a golden opportunity to learn from those who have gone before us. Whatever you current stance on grad school, this will be a great way to get your questions answered and help you make an informed decision about your future.

 Pumpkin Carving - 10/31/12 6:00pm HAMP 4251
We will be carving pumpkins and probably eating some sort of Halloween-inspired goodies. In addition, President Hudson will be giving a brief talk about her experiences at NCAR this summer. You don't want to miss this event! It will be a great start to your Halloween festivities!

Note: Only members who have paid their dues will be able to carve pumpkins. We need a firm head count for this event so we know how many pumpkins to buy. Please try to let us know for sure one way or the other.


*NWS Roadshow - 11/13/12 4:30pm HAMP 2201
This is one of the most important events of the year! Several VIPs from the nearby NWS offices will be coming here to Purdue to talk to us about not only the NWS, but the field in general. Even if you have no interest in the NWS this is still a valuable event to attend. It will provide you with a wealth of information and great practice talking to a potential employer. Plus, we will have a networking dinner afterward (place TBD) which is usually paid for by the department! Dress is typically business casual.

We hope to see as many members as possible!


*Update (10/24/2012): Due to limited budgets within NOAA and the NWS, the Roadshow has been postponed until February. Please stay tuned for any updates later on.
