Rich MacGilvray – STC Student Advisor
Hello All, Welcome to Week 6!!! I am the academic advisor for STC (School of Technology & Computing). I have been working on Spring schedule offerings for the past few weeks. Domestic students should have suggested offerings for the Spring quarter should be arriving in your CityU email in the next week if you have not received them. Spring quarter will start on April 3rd.
Please continue delivering us feedback. We continue to address concerns as we know of them. Your communication is important to us. As an academic advisor, I have a question for all those reading this. Have you attended a course office hour this quarter? Your instructors have posted hours of when they are available. Please use them because you did ask for instructors to be available.
I consider myself an advocate for each of my students. With that said, I really try to make myself available to listen to any issues or concerns. Feel free to reach me via MS Teams, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone/txt 206.239.4530. I look forward to making more improvements to your City University of Seattle experience.
Reaching out to a tech recruiter can be daunting, but it can also be a crucial step in landing your dream job. If you can effectively communicate with recruiters, you can increase your chances of landing your next job opportunity. As a rule of thumb, you should first research the company and the recruiter before reaching out. In short, before sending that email or LinkedIn message, do your homework. This will help you tailor your message to their needs and show that you are genuinely interested in the company and the role. Click here to view the full article.
