It may seem like a distant dream, but summer is just around the corner! Students may be facing difficult decisions about taking low-paid or unpaid internships and research opportunities, and while some deadlines have passed, there are still funding opportunities available across the university. Today, Mylene and Michael discuss where you can find them and how quickly you need to act on them. Also: How DID Scrooge McDuck swim through hard currency? Enjoy!
Networking is an essential part of career development and exploration, but it can often feel intimidating to dive right in to conversations with people you may not know. This week, Michael and Mylène review some great opening lines to use in “blind” networking…and some not so great ones too. Enjoy!
It’s CS Radio with our very special guest host, N. Thomas Leach! (Yaaaay!)

This is the first of what we hope will be several looks at emerging career fields.
