Monster: "How to make sure your internship ends with a full-time job"

Monster: "How to make sure your internship ends with a full-time job"

Solicit feedback from your boss

Many managers are uncomfortable providing feedback to interns. But you’ll need input from your manager to improve your skills and prove you’re worth hiring, says Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University and author of The Secret to Getting a Job after College: Marketing Tactics to Turn Degrees into Dollars.

Make the situation less awkward for your boss by taking the lead. Say: “I want you to know that I have thick skin. I’m here to learn and improve, so please never feel uncomfortable giving me constructive criticism.”

Moreover, ask your manager for a midterm performance evaluation to identify your strengths and weaknesses, and take the opportunity to highlight your achievements thus far. “Don’t rely on your boss to keep track of your accomplishments,” says Mark Lyden, author of College Students: Do This! Get Hired!.

Step outside your department

Don’t limit your interactions to only your direct supervisor and immediate peers. “Your particular boss may not have the power to offer you a job when the internship ends, but a manager in another part of the company may be able to hire you,” says Chiagouris.

Meet other hiring managers by requesting informational interviews (e.g., “Do you have a spare half hour for me to stop by and learn more about what your team does?”). You’ll gain institutional knowledge, gain visibility and begin building meaningful relationships. Granted, your fellow interns may be meeting with the same people, but Chiagouris says you can leave a more lasting impression with a simple trick: “Get your own business cards. The company probably won’t give them to you as an intern, but you need to have your own cards and hand them out to people so that you can maintain communication and show you’re already a professional.”

Additionally, volunteer days, company softball games and happy hours make for great casual settings to meet employees you wouldn’t normally be exposed to, says Chiagouris, so keep your eye on the company newsletter so that you can take advantage of these events.

Financial Times: "Trump closes in on Republican nomination"

Financial Times: "Trump closes in on Republican nomination"

. . . David Caputo, president emeritus of Pace University, said Mr Trump was increasingly using presidential symbols, from news conferences — instead of campaign rallies — to the US flags that adorned his Tuesday event to his plane, which Mr Rubio has mocked as “Hair Force One”, in a play on the presidential aircraft. Mr Caputo said March 15, when Florida and Ohio vote, was “likely to be last chance to slow or stop Trump”.

Forbes: "Success By The Numbers: An Interview With Investopedia CEO David Siegel"

Forbes: "Success By The Numbers: An Interview With Investopedia CEO David Siegel"

. . . "I’m teaching an Entrepreneurship & Venture Initiation class at Pace University this Spring," said David Siegel, CEO of Investopedia. "I’ve had many conversations with my millennial students about the value of working first and becoming an entrepreneur later. There are 3 key arguments:

•             One, make mistakes on someone else’s dime before you’re on your own.

•             Two, there is huge value to networking and building relationships with colleagues who can be entrepreneurial partners in the future.

•             Three, if working allows an individual to save dollars and be less beholden to outside investors, then the entrepreneur will maintain greater autonomy – which is at the core of nearly every entrepreneur’s motivations. The best path for an Entrepreneur is to work as an Intrapeneur, within a company, with the right culture that is aligned with his or her priorities.

New York Daily News: "Donald Trump leads Republican field on the eve of Super Tuesday primaries"

. . . "March 1st is likely to mark the beginning of the end of the Republican nominating process. With more than 500 delegates at stake, it is imperative that either Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz make concerted gains against Donald Trump or the Trump lead will only increase in subsequent nominating contests," David Caputo, president emeritus and professor of Political Science at Pace University, told The News in an email.

"For Donald Trump, March 1 provides the opportunity to gain a commanding delegate lead and have between one-third and one-half of the delegates he needs," Caputo said. "This may be the last and only chance that Trump's opposition has to cut into his lead."

But Caputo also suggested that party leaders, scared silly over the prospects of Trump as their candidate, could try to "deny him a majority of the delegates between now and the convention and permit the convention to decide who will be the nominee."

USA TODAY: "Bernie Sanders campaigns in Minneapolis, Massachusetts ahead of Super Tuesday"

. . . Democrats’ practice of awarding delegates in proportion to the vote in each state could extend the primary battle through the last contest in June, said David Caputo, a political science professor at New York’s Pace University. But unless Sanders can erode Clinton's edge with minority voters, he’ll have a hard time matching her delegate count, he said.

“Without at least 60% of the delegates awarded on Super Tuesday, it will be difficult for Sanders to have a path to the nomination and there will be increasing pressure on him to drop out,” Caputo said.

Journal News: "There might be an app for that"

. . . After the rally, Jonathan Hill, interim dean of Pace's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, said the contest is a great melding of needs. Kids want to program and seniors are hungry for apps that fill their needs.

"There's an aspect to mobile development called usability," Hill said. "It's the science of how you make these things easy to use and intuitive to use. The fastest adoption rate, in this country at least, of mobile app users is people in their 60's, because they make your life easier, or 'frictionless,' as engineers like to say."

Hill said the job market for mobile app developers and supporting engineers is robust at this point.

. . . The issue at the heart of the dispute has haunted American jurisprudence since Edward Snowden’s disclosure of America’s vast digital domestic spying network. But the FBI’s order is specific enough that it attacks the phone’s security at its weakest point: the user’s necessarily simple passcode.

The break-in method would give Apple a fig leaf, said Darren Hayes, a forensic technologist at New York’s Pace University: “There’s a lot of discussion about weaker encryption and privacy and creating backdoors and that really isn’t the case.” Law enforcement shouldn’t be tarred with the same brush as surveillance, he had said.

Bloomberg Business: "Pace University Awarded Grant from Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare to Fund Doctoral Nursing Students"

Bloomberg Business: "Pace University Awarded Grant from Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare to Fund Doctoral Nursing Students"

The  Lienhard School of Nursing in the College of Health Professions at Pace University, announced today that with a new grant of $40,000 from the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare it will fund the scholarship of four doctoral nursing students in 2016.

Pace University will provide a match in the form of a graduate assistantship (including tuition remission and stipend) valued at a minimum of $5,000 per year for two years for each DNP student selected to receive the Jonas Nurse Leader award (i.e., for four scholars, a total match of $20,000 minimum each year for two years).

As a recipient of the Jonas Center grant, Pace University is part of a national effort to stem the faculty shortage and prepare the next generation of nurses critical as a clinical nurse shortage is anticipated just as an aging population requires care.

The Pace University Jonas Scholars join more than 1,000 future nurse educators and leaders at 140 universities across all 50 states supported by Jonas Center programs, the Jonas Nurse Leaders Scholars Program and Jonas Veterans Healthcare Program  (JVHP). These scholarships support nurses pursuing PhDs and DNPs, the terminal degrees in the field.

"We are very pleased that the College of Health Professions at Pace was included in this round of Jonas funding," said Harriet R. Feldman, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean and professor of the College of Health Professions and the Lienhard School of Nursing at Pace. "We greatly value the Foundation's support for our very deserving students who are on a quest to advance their already established careers through quality education."

Pace University Awarded Grant from Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare to Fund Doctoral Nursing Students

Grant is part of a national initiative to support 1,000 nurse scholars in all 50 States

NEW YORK, NY, February 25, 2016 – The Lienhard School of Nursing in the College of Health Professions at Pace University, announced today that with a new grant of $40,000 from the Jonas Center for Nursing and Veterans Healthcare it will fund the scholarship of four doctoral nursing students in 2016.

Pace University will provide a match in the form of a graduate assistantship (including tuition remission and stipend) valued at a minimum of $5,000 per year for two years for each DNP student selected to receive the Jonas Nurse Leader award (i.e., for four scholars, a total match of $20,000 minimum each year for two years).

As a recipient of the Jonas Center grant, Pace University is part of a national effort to stem the faculty shortage and prepare the next generation of nurses – critical as a clinical nurse shortage is anticipated just as an aging population requires care.

The Pace University Jonas Scholars join more than 1,000 future nurse educators and leaders at 140 universities across all 50 states supported by Jonas Center programs, the Jonas Nurse Leaders Scholars Program and Jonas Veterans Healthcare Program (JVHP). These scholarships support nurses pursuing PhDs and DNPs, the terminal degrees in the field.

“We are very pleased that the College of Health Professions at Pace was included in this round of Jonas funding,” said Harriet R. Feldman, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean and professor of the College of Health Professions and the Lienhard School of Nursing at Pace. “We greatly value the Foundation’s support for our very deserving students who are on a quest to advance their already established careers through quality education.”

As the nation’s leading philanthropic funder of graduate nursing education, the Jonas Center is addressing the critical need for qualified nursing faculty. U.S. nursing schools turned away nearly 70,000 qualified applicants from baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs in 2014 due in large part to an insufficient number of faculty . Further, nearly two-thirds of registered nurses over age 54 say they are considering retirement .

“In 2008, we set an ambitious goal to support 1,000 Jonas Nurse Scholars. This year, on our Center’s 10th anniversary, we celebrate this achievement and are amazed by the talent of this cohort of future nurse leaders,” said Donald Jonas, who co-founded the Center with Barbara Jonas, his wife. “In the decade to come, we look forward to continuing to work with our partner nursing schools and to the great impact that the Jonas Scholars will have on improving healthcare around the world.”

“We are again honored to have our outstanding students and program recognized by the Jonas Foundation,” said Jason Slyer, DNP, RN, FNP-BC, FNAP, Pace Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Director, Doctor of Nursing Practice Programs. “Our two prior Jonas scholars recently completed their project to increase the awareness of the need for nursing presence in leadership positions and on non-nursing boards.”

This current opportunity will allow four more DNP students to promote clinical leadership development to support the Jonas Foundation’s goals. Two of these scholarships will be awarded to students who are US veterans and will be used to develop projects aimed at improving veterans’ health, a goal jointly supported by Pace and the Jonas Foundation. Pace’s DNP program, in alignment with the Jonas Foundation, will continue to support increased diversity in the healthcare workforce while promoting leadership to improve care for the populations nurses serve.

The Pace University Jonas Scholars will be selected from the current cohort of DNP students and will be supported through 2018.

Financial Times: "Trump sees clearer path to Republican nomination"

. . . “Super Tuesday will determine if Trump has a fast lane to victory,” said David Caputo, president emeritus of Pace University in New York. “He has broken the 40 per cent threshold for the first time in Nevada and his two major opponents are not improving their positions. So Nevada does a great deal to develop an aura of invincibility — something that is important for Trump. It is all about delegates at this point and Trump is poised to do well.”
