AI-Grads Luncheon

Hi Folks,

From the leftover money in the Ai-Grads funds, the ai-grads taskforce decided to have two events. First of the two will a lunch with a panel of alumnis discussing their experience getting a job and at USC. We are still in process of picking the alumni students for this, but we hope to get at least 4-5 of them involved. Tentative date for this is Wednesday, 29th March.

However, to make this event possible we need your input. We need you all to RSVP for this event by posting a comment to this post. In the RSVP please include your choice of chipotle burrito. I think the choices are veggie, chicken, or steak. Also, please tell us your opinion on the format. Would you prefer that each of the alumni give a short presentation on their experience or just open panel discussion based on questions everyone asks. Please RSVP by March 24th.
Unlike the Friday lunchs this lunch will be paid by AI-Grads, so you don't want to miss it.

So far we have confirmed the following speakers:
Jose Luis Ambite
Mark Moll
Greg Barish
Yu-Han Chang

I'd like a veggie burrito with rice and BOTH black and pinto beans. And two kinds of salsa: hot and corn. And lettuce, cheese, and sour cream... ;)

I'm all for a mostly open panel discussion, but I think a short informal presentation at the start would be good (since many of us don't know these people), and then open the floor. Otherwise, you know the first question is going to be "so tell us about your experience getting a job" anyway...

I would appreciate a short presentation by the speakers to hear what they think is important first. Then I will want to ask questions.

Thanks to everyone who RSVPed for this event. Don't forget to come to room 950, before Tuesday 28th to fill out your specific burrito order. If you can't make it, don't worry, we'll just order a default one with your meat choice. Thanks!
