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. This shortcoming for Google is especially surprising given that the search engine amasses information about the entire world for all of its people every second of the day. You would think that a company responsible for delivering such an infinite variety of information would itself be a diverse place to work.

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. As a STEM major, you can include almost anything relevant to the job/ position you are applying for, including technical skills, research positions and publications, shadowing, projects, certifications and much more!
