Discounted career services available to associate members

Graduates of the university can take advantage of a series of related job placement services to sharpen their overall presentation and more effectively target promising positions around the country.

Resume Expert Plus, the software currently used by UB's Office of Career Planning and Placement, is now available to association members at $35, whether they purchase the package in person or through the mail. The offer represents a $5 discount on the mail-in service. Alumni need only submit an updated resume each August to participate continuously. The $35 fee is payable only once in one's lifetime.

Resume Expert allows job candidates to prepare a high-quality resume and participate in Career Planning and Placement's related placement services, once they are registered. For instance, participants have access to a 24-hour job vacancy hotline, continuous resume referral to thousands of employers, touchtone sign-up for on-campus interviews, vendacard/laser printer privileges in the Career Resource Library, and a resume critique service.

Contact the alumni office for a Resume Expert order form. Meanwhile, be sure to visit the Career Planning and Placement Web site .

 

 

 

San Franciscans inaugurate newest alumni chapter

People often tell us that the further they get from UB, the warmer they feel about their alma mater. Well, that is certainly true in San Francisco, where a new alumni board is capitalizing on local enthusiasm for the university.

The inaugural event for the new San Francisco chapter-an October 15 reception at One Market-was a great success. UB President Bill Greiner and his wife, Carol, were on hand to greet representatives of the estimated 1,500 UB graduates who live in San Francisco or its environs.

Future chapter programs may include sporting events, a wine tasting, opportunities to network with other San Francisco alumni and more searching for the elusive, perfect chicken wing restaurant.

If you live in the San Francisco area, we encourage you to contact Lynda Olszewski, B.S. '90, who has agreed to lead the chapter. Lynda and the other board members want to know your thoughts on programming and the best locations to meet. We know that downtown San Francisco is not convenient to all.

While you are welcome to contact the Alumni Association at 1 (800) BUILD UB with your ideas for the chapter, you may prefer to call Lynda directly at (510) 734-9990, ext. 141.

-Judith Van Nostrand, Associate Alumni Director
