This is a second Upward Bound opportunity that the separate from the posting below from January 26th.

The Upward Bound Regional Math Science Center (RMSC) at Frostburg State University has summer job openings for  English and Science teachers and residential Tutor/Counselor positions. 

The FSU Regional Math/Science Center is a federally funded Department of Education Upward Bound program designed to help low-income, potential first-generation college students achieve their goals of attaining college degrees, specifically in the fields of math and science.  Participants in the program attend a multi-week summer session on the campus of FSU where they are engaged in a scientific research project.  

The RMSC strives to develop exciting hands-on projects that are relevant to modern life.

While working on these projects the practical use of the scientific method is emphasized.  Students must develop testable hypotheses, help design the study, collect the data needed, analyze the data, draw conclusions based on the data collected and finally present their study in both oral and written form.  Students learn about peer review as they present their study progress each week to the other students in the program.  They also learn to use the computer for data analysis, for data processing their formal report, and for developing a power point presentation that is presented to a panel of scientists and an audience of parents, university, and public officials. 

While at FSU students also participate in a variety of activities designed to promote strong study skills and positive social behaviors, as well as activities that provide recreational and cultural experiences.

My name is Josh Sattler and I am a Recruiting Coordinator for ScribeAmerica; a company that hires and trains Medical Scribe for Physicians. This email is to provide information about a truly unique employment opportunity for students interested in careers in medicine. Our company is currently looking to recruit students to work as Medical Scribes in Georgetown, MD.  The scribe will work side by side with physicians assisting with documentation for each patient evaluated by the doctor.  It is an exceptional opportunity for any student interested in medicine to gain first-hand experience following a physician. 

The role of a scribe is to closely collaborate with their assigned physician by documenting the history of each patient evaluated, the doctor’s physical examination, the results of laboratory/radiological studies ordered, and the eventual diagnosis and disposition.  Becoming a scribe provides the student with first rate exposure to medical terminology, disease processes, emergency procedures, medications, and the medical decision making process performed by the physicians.

This job is not for everyone; the complexity of the material and fast-paced environment necessitate that only the sharpest and most motivated students succeed as a scribe.  We are looking for dependable and hard working employees that have a desire for an eventual career in medicine, or are interested in learning more about careers in medicine.  There are multiple shifts, both day and night and each shift consists of following a single physician, usually lasting 8-12 hours. It is expected that each scribe can commit to 2 shifts per week for at least 2 years.​

Paid classroom & clinical training is provided. The training is extensive and intense. Each employee will have multiple training sessions both in the classroom and the emergency department during which we teach the flow of the emergency room, extensive medical terminology, and appropriate medical/legal documentation.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity which has demonstrated itself to be excellent experience for students preparing for careers in medicine.  Our past employees that excelled as scribes have gone on to receive outstanding evaluations in their clinical years and residencies.

For more information you may also visit our website www.scribeamerica.com.  Please contact me if you have any questions about our program.

 

Regards,

Josh Sattler

PAID SUMMER JOBS WITH PENNENVIRONMENT!The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country.  We've run campaigns for USPIRG, Environment America, the Human Rights Campaign, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and Fair Share Alliance.This summer, we are running an office in Philadelphia, PA to build support for PennEnvironment's campaign to save the bees.Millions of bees are dying off every year, putting our ecosystem and food supply at risk. Bees pollinate most of our food: everything from apples and broccoli to coffee beans and chocolate.  One of the major reasons is a relatively new type of pesticides called neonicotinoids, or "neonics," which are about 6000 times more toxic to bees than DDT. Scientists, farmers and beekeepers have sounded the alarm, and now PennEnvironment is running a campaign to educate the public and build public support in order to get the EPA to ban these dangerous chemicals.  This is your chance to spend your summer working for a great cause, while gaining valuable campaign leadership experience and making on average between $9-14/hour.

In addition to training and supervising undergraduate research assistants, the lab manager cultivates a team orientation, and fosters a high degree of professionalism among laboratory members. The applicant must have excellent skills working with young children and the staff they interface with at the University and in the field.

The manager will coordinate closely with Drs. Frank Keil and Kristi Lockhart and with postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduates working in the lab, but should be able to work independently. Taking an active role in all aspects of research is strongly encouraged, including opportunities to participate in reading groups and research seminars.

Appointments are preferred who are willing to make a two-year commitment.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with the aim of concluding this search as soon as an exceptional candidate has been found. Approximate start date is August 15, 2016, but that date is flexible

Materials: Please submit a CV, cover letter, and unofficial transcript as a single pdf file, and list e-mails for three letter writers. We will contact letter writers for shortlisted candidates.

I am reaching out to you in the hopes of referring student talent to our Master's in Human Resources Program. We have pressing needs from our employers for more talent from our program to address their HR global staffing gaps. Those individuals from a psychology, liberal arts or business program tend to do very well in our program and result in quick job placement in top Human Resource Fortune 100 organizations.

Some key points:

Why the Human Resources Profession: It is about employment

Numerous surveys indicate that HR continues to grow as a profession with robust employment opportunities (companies such as GE, IBM, Ingersoll Rand, Siemens).  Graduates from our program earn from 55,000-88,000 as starting salaries; mean of 73K.  We place 80% either before or 60 days after graduation.  The remaining 20% gain employment typically in about 4-5 months following graduation.  Nearly 100% of our students gain meaningful summer internships.  We have a dedicated HR placement/career services group focused on key employer contact and HR placement facilitation.

Why Rutgers

Our Human Resources graduate program is part of a very top tier group of HR programs recognized on a global basis.  We have the most HR faculty dedicated to advancing the field and a program which focuses on developing leading-edge skill and imparting state-of-the art knowledge within a global context. We are centered in the major Northeast metropolitan area with immediate access to hundreds of employers.  While our program is anchored in strong research based knowledge we have an equal emphasis on applied skill building.  For example, we champion several case project competitions sponsored by Corporations to hone student skill in analyzing time-sensitive critical HR issues faced by an organizations.  Presentations of applied recommendations are given to top HR executive teams of sponsoring organizations. Our diverse classes number about 30 and in-depth class discussion and participation is also a hallmark of our program.

Benefits

For those interested in a career in HR, our Masters is a transformational experience.  Our tuition and associated costs compare very favorably to other top ranked HR programs.  In addition, we offer scholarships and teaching assistants to support top student development and aid in the completion of the program.  A vast majority complete our program in two years. I welcome direct contact and hope that this will be of interest to your student community. Our website www.mhrm.rutgers.edu provides further information.

We have an Open House 5-7:30 pm November 4 in our Levin Building and registration to attend will soon be available on our SMLR/MHRM website.
