Tomorrow I take off down to Klamath Falls to visit my school, Oregon Institute of Technology. This time I’m not just going down as a student, I’m going down as an employee representing Garmin. Funny thing is that I’m going without being an official employee. I’m an intern and will be for another two months. After that I’ll be in the process of finishing school and looking for a job.

Though I am really looking forward to representing Garmin at the career fair and in the classes we go to visit, I find it kind of nerve wrecking since it will leave me little time to visit potential employers. I think Garmin is a fantastic company and would love to work for them, I just want to keep my options open at this point in time though. Representing Garmin tomorrow and the day after will consume my time to mingle with the other companies since I will be manning the Garmin booth telling students about Garmin. How crazy is that. This is MY career fair as a student, yet I’m going like I am already employed. We’ll see what happens tomorrow. For all I know, I may have the opportunity to drop off a few resumes after all.

I’m looking forward to the next couple days and hope to see a number of fellow students apply and get interviewed for Garmin. After this I come back for work on Wednesday, and then take off that evening to Spokane, Washington for NACA West representing OIT as the entertainment coordinator for Campus Activites. I’ll then return back to Salem next Sunday. What a busy week!

The information session and career fair ended up to be a great success.  We had 38 students attend the information session where we got to share to them in more detail what Garmin AT was all about.  We also had a number of students come up for the career fair.  We had a chance to get more information from the students interested in a position in the aviation world with Garmin.

I also got the chance to walk around and meet other companies and even hand out some resumes.  Not that I don’t want to be with Garmin, it’s just that I like to keep my options open.

While I was there I also got to see my girlfriend, Christina, and a number of professors and friends.  I was also finally able to get my petitions to graduate filled out and turned in to the registrar.  After this current term, I have ten classes to go (5 each term).

Overall I had a fantastic time seeing professors, meeting students, and being able to visit my girlfriend.  I’m looking forward to finishing up the internship and getting back down to the k-falls area.

Next stop-Spokane…
