Boot Camp: Career Expo Prep - 8:30 Sessions

Workshop/Training | Focused Friday

BOOT CAMP: Career Expo Prep

Three sessions (repeated at 9:30 and 11:30) to help you prepare for the upcoming Huntsman Career Expo.

Resumes (HH 370): Whether you have never created a resume, or you're on your 100th revision, this workshop is for you. We will discuss what employers want to see on a resume as well as what you should leave off. You'll leave knowing how to articulate your experience in a business context, highlighting your qualifications and skills to employers. If you already have a resume, bring it with you so you can leave with an improved draft!

Elevator Pitches/Networking/Interview Strategies: (HH 260): Personal elevator pitches and interviews make many feel uncomfortable. The good news is that confidence comes with preparation and practice. This workshop is designed to help you feel confident for the Huntsman Career Expo. Remember, first impressions are often the most memorable.

Career Fair Prep: (HH 320): No matter what your past experiences (or lack of experiences) have been with career fairs, it's likely you may have questions about how to prepare and make the upcoming expo successful. This workshop will review what you need to know, what to expect, and ultimately how to stand out and be remembered by company contacts.

Stream and Riparian Restoration

Special Event | Agriculture and Natural Resources

Come help us build BDA’s on East Canyon Creek! A Beaver Dam Analog (BDA) is a man-made structure designed to mimic the form and function of a natural beaver dam. This will be a fun outdoor project to help improve habitat and water quality! We are partnering with Wild Utah project. We will have some waders and boots to borrow, but people should bring their own boots if they have them (the stream isn't super deep). Kids 10+ are welcome to come along with a parent. We will do hands-on restoration work in streams. It’s a fun day outdoors and no experience is necessary.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright

Exhibition

Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets.
The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku.
The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in 1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.

Applied Math Seminar

Conference/Seminar

We are honored to have Prof. James Powell to kick off the seminar series for fall 2019.
Title: One spot, two spot, red spot grew spots: How differential dispersal, phenology, and the Allee effect predict pattern formation in mountain pine beetle impact.
Abstract: The mountain pine beetle (MPB), is an aggressive insect which attacks pine trees. Pines have significant physical/chemical defenses, requiring the beetles to attack en masse to successfully colonize. Beetle larvae consume the phloem, killing the host and requiring dispersal to find new hosts. Temperatures nonlinearly control development and emergence, creating a thermal niche depending on synchronized timing and dispersal. Warming has broadened this niche across western North America, causing recent tree mortality over 60 million hectares. Observed patterns run the gamut from apparently random, persistent spots to aggregating spots and growing patches to complete mortality in susceptible age classes. A mechanistic model based on differential beetle motility between forested and unforested habitats (ecological diffusion), temperature control of MPB and the Allee effect recovers most variability at landscape scales but misses spots appearing at low emergence levels.
