Jim's Greatest Pranks on Dwight - The Office

Fun App of the Week

Thanksgiving is coming! Be prepared for that food coma with a great time-wasting quiz game. QuizUp, by Plain Vanilla Corp, is self described as "the biggest trivia game in the world." Whether you are challenging your friends (on any topic imaginable) or playing random match-ups, QuizUp will challenge your knowledge in a fun setting.

Etiquette Tip of the Week

So many new names to learn and so little time. When you are at a meeting around a conference room table where each person introduces himself/herself, draw a map of the table in your notes with the names of each person, where they are sitting and any additional info: titles, where they are from, etc.

During the meeting, try to find patterns that will help you remember the names... two "M" names: "Mark" and "Mariah;" rhyming names: Terry and Larry; alphabetical order: Nancy, Olivia, Peter. Memorize the faces that go with each name.

Name recall does not require a photographic memory. It requires practice.

Tips for Building Your DULink Profile

DULink is one of the best resources for you to find your next internship, externship, or job. Our online portal can be found through the "Life after Denison" webpage (a Google search of that will lead you directly to it). Scroll down and you will find a link directing you to DULink.

DULink will automatically lead you through a set-up for key information in your profile. Afterwards, you can upload resumes, transcripts, and cover letters, through the "My Documents" tab. This is located at the top of the screen. Hit "Add new," at the bottom of this page and from then on it is the same as adding an attachment to an email.

From here you can search for jobs, externships, and internships under the "Jobs" tab. For most positions you simply need to hit "Apply" and click on which documents you want to include in the application. Presto! You have officially applied to a position.

Other Tips:
  • Hit "View" after uploading documents (on the My Documents page) to individually check each document you have uploaded. Make sure that the format has not changed during the upload, because that is how your documents will appear to employers.
  • Do not title your documents with too long of a name, this may cause it to be unable to upload successfully
  • If you have any further trouble or need assistance stop by CE&D in 306 Burton Morgan. Our team will be glad to help out.
