Turning Trash into Training Dollars

Esri recently held an eWaste Recycle Day, with nearly 100 employees dropping off unwanted electronic items including computers, printers, monitors, TV sets, and cell phones. More than 5,600 pounds of equipment were donated to Goodwill, which processes it in an environmentally responsible way to help protect our planet from hazardous waste. The income Goodwill receives from the recycling program helps fund education, training, and job placement services for people with disabilities.

Truly a win-win. Happy Earth Day!

Graduating Soon? Why You Should Start Your Job Hunt Now!

Are you one of the thousands of students who will soon make the transition from college life to the working world? In this interview with Michael Johnson, Esri’s university programs manager, learn what you can—and should—be doing now to land your first full-time job.

How soon before graduation should a student start seriously looking for a job?

It depends on where they’re at professionally and academically. If they have internship experience, they’ll likely already have some leads. I advise students to get going as soon as school starts in the fall semester—proactively leveraging contacts, networking, crafting their resumé, and applying to the places they know they want to work. So many students make the mistake of waiting until the spring semester or even when they graduate before realizing, “Hey, it’s time for me to find a job!”

Do Your Homework Before Attending a Career Fair

In his 15 years with Esri, talent acquisition leader Jason Otero has represented us at many recruiting events. I recently asked him to share some of his advice for getting the most out of attending a career fair.

What’s the best way for a career fair attendee to prepare for meeting potential employers?

Oftentimes what we find are people who come up to the table prepared to talk about themselves. They’ve got resumes in-hand, they’re dressed appropriately, and they have all their ducks in a row. But what they tend not to have done is research the organizations they want to meet. What gets a recruiter’s attention is the person who comes up with a keen sense of interest in the company and can explain how their background, skills, and interests align with the potential new organization and, specifically, the job opportunities they’re interested in.
