news, views & ruminations emanating from within the chaos of a corner office nestled (buried?) on the 2nd floor of the business tower on the SJSU campus. the MIS department (now called the School of Information Systems and Technology) keeps its chair (now called a Director) there, at a desk, somewhere underneath the dusty piles of memos and forms marked URGENT and THIRD REQUEST.
This just came in today and seems like a choice opportunity to get some experience with IT support in a large company. The hiring manager who sent it says "any decent student in MIS would definitely benefit from learning this successful Enterprise Software, how we support our global customers, and making connections into Rockwell Automation." He was asking for sophomores and juniors but I think they would consider anyone who isn't yet graduating. (The qualifications say "enrolled full time".) If you don't have something else lined up for this summer, give it a try.
