Google's Diversity Update

Katharine McDonough – February 22nd, 2018

Google has been getting a lot of flack recently for its lack of diversity. From a controversial memo that has been circulating in the media to the dismal number of non-asian people of color, that criticism may not be unwarranted.

How to Create a STEM Resume: The Basics

Tyler Macaluso – February 6th, 2018

Resumes are often seen as daunting or difficult to create, especially for STEM majors that might be earlier on in their college careers, causing them to feel less qualified. However, this should not be the case because STEM majors actually have more freedom and variability when it comes to what they can include on their resumes compared to many other majors.
