UNDERGRAD STUDENT SURVIVAL GUIDE

Issue No. 6 2017-2018


LETTER FROM THE

PRESIDENT Dear Bearcats, Welcome to your new home away from home! On behalf of the Undergraduate Student Government here at Baruch I am thrilled to welcome you to your campus. We know that the process of starting at a new college can be extremely overwhelming and my team and I have created this guide to make that transition a little easier for you. Inside this edition you will find a glossary of the many amazing clubs and organizations on campus, tips and tricks on navigating the academic and professional resources we have available, and so much more! This year has been a year for recognizing the exceptional academics Baruch College has to offer. Just this summer Baruch was awarded #2 Best College for your money by Money Magazine. Our college is located in the financial capital of the world and our business school was recently ranked #1 Public Business School in New York state. In addition to academic excellence, Baruch has also been recognized as the most ethnically diverse campus in the nation by both U.S. News and World Report and the Princeton Review more time than any other college in the United States! Baruch truly is a campus rife with opportunity. I can speak from first-hand experience that choosing to be involved in student life in my time here at Baruch has been a truly rewarding and valuable experience. I would encourage each and every one of you to push outside of your comfort zone to find your passion here at Baruch, there is something available for everyone. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, feel free to stop by my office in the Newman Vertical Campus, room 3-276. Our office doors are always open in Student Government so if you get a chance, please stop by or attend our weekly senate meetings (every Tuesday at 5:30). Last but certainly not least, if you see me or anyone from the student government team walking around campus, say hello! Wishing you an amazing year! #BearcatPride

STUDY ABROAD

The Study Abroad Office The Study Abroad Office at Baruch helps students make an international experience a part of their academic degree program. They advise students about opportunities and orient them to overcome financial, curricular or personal obstacles. Baruch College students are eligible to attend study abroad programs ranging from January Intersession and Summer Sessions to a semester or even academic year abroad. Students should think about studying abroad now, and start by attending the bi-annual Study Abroad Fair, which takes place in mid-September and mid-February. These fairs offer a wonderful opportunity for program providers and past participants to speak to Baruch students about the study abroad programs available to them.

Annex Building, 8th Floor (646) 312 2090 or (646) 312 2091 study.abroad@baruch.cuny.edu baruch.cuny.edu/study-abroad Mon-Fri: 12:30pm-2:30pm Wed-Thurs: 4:30pm-6pm

Exchange students from our partner universities who are studying at Baruch will also staff tables to give Baruch students first-hand information about campus life abroad. Understanding the kinds of academic and cultural experiences our students have abroad will help prospective students integrate study abroad into their overall college career.

STUDY ABROAD OPTIONS Study Abroad Programs Experiencing foreign culture is an indispensable component of undergraduate education. At Baruch, students have over 100 different study abroad programs to choose from, located in 35 different countries. Students do not have to know a second language to study abroad, though it is beneficial. Most study abroad programs offer courses taught in English. Students can attend programs sponsored by other CUNY or SUNY campuses, or a third party study abroad provider.

Baruch Exchanges Baruch Exchange allows students to pay their normal Baruch tuition while participating in a program at a campus in a different country. The program operates on a one-to-one exchange, which means a visiting student from a partner university will come to Baruch in place of the Baruch student studying abroad. These exchanges are best for students who would like to be thoroughly immersed in the foreign academic institution.

Direct Enrollment Students may enroll in a foreign institution directly if the school does not have an exchange agreement with Baruch College.

10

PROCEDURES AND PRECAUTION

Interested students should visit the Study Abroad office as soon as possible to inquire about different programs. All Baruch students who intend on participating in a study abroad program must submit an online application. If the program is sponsored by another campus, the student must submit an application there as well. It is extremely important that both applications are submitted. Students should frequently check in with both the Baruch study abroad office and the host organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office to ensure the process goes smoothly. All courses taken by Baruch College students at a foreign university must be approved for Baruch College credit by the appropriate department.


FINANCING YOUR TRIP Financial Aid All Baruch College Students who study abroad on approved programs may use their Pell grants to help pay for their overseas studies. TAP awards may also be applied if the program meets the requirements of the TAP administration. The Baruch College financial aid office also assists students in obtaining loans to help finance their study abroad experience.

Scholarships and Fellowships Baruch students also have various opportunities for outside funding. National scholarships, such as the Gilman and Boren scholarships, are highly encouraged. As CUNY students, Baruch study abroad applicants who meet the eligibility criteria are encouraged to apply for scholarships for International Resume Building Opportunities for CUNY students (SIROCS) grants. Baruch College students are also eligible to apply for a C.V. Starr study abroad fellowship, which is made available exclusively to Baruch Students, thanks to a generous grant from the C.V. Starr Foundation.

Weissman Center for International Business The Weissman Center for International Business strives to prepare Baruch students for the global market with programs designed to reinforce business values while exposing them to economic matters from a global standpoint. Some of the services this center offers include: international internships, a study abroad program, the Global Student Certificate program, scholarships and access to the International Business Alumni Association.

The correct sequence for a minor is course 4, 3, then course 2 because most 4000-level capstone classes have a requirement of two 3000-level courses. Because these are minor courses, courses 2,3 and 4 must be taken within the same department unless specified by department. Some departments, like the Economics department, have specific courses that make up the minor. Please consult with an academic/ departmental advisor to choose the correct course sequence.

JOB HUNTING BASICS KNOW YOURSELF The answer to these questions can help you develop your personal pitch. Knowing who you are and what you want to do will keep you on the right course throughout your college career!

}} Can you describe yourself using 5 words or less? }} What is your passion? Why? }} What are your hobbies? What do they say about you? }} What interests you? What is interesting about you? }} Imagine yourself in an elevator with the CEO or Managing Director at a firm. How would you introduce and describe yourself to him/her in 30-60 seconds?

GENERAL RESUME TIPS Your Address City, State, Zip Code Date First and Last Name of Contact Person Title of Contact Person Name of Company/Organization Street Address or PO Box City, State, Zip Code Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name, 1st Paragraph: State why you are writing. Identify the position, field or general area of your inquiry. Also state how you heard about the opening or organization. 2nd Paragraph: Indicate your career or job objective and why you are particularly suited for this company and the type of work. Highlight your relevant achievements and qualifications, and elaborate on key points from your resume without repeating it entirely. Communicate to the employer that you understand the position and have the qualities he/she seeks by pointing out your related work experience and coursework. 3rd Paragraph: Politely request an interview and repeat your phone and email contact information. Lastly, thank the employer for his/her time and consideration. Sincerely,

It lets employers know who you are, what you’ve done, and what you can do to add value to their company. To put your best foot forward, make sure your resume is perfect. This means no spelling errors, grammatical mistakes, or typos! Have a friend or a SCDC counselor look it over before sending. A pro tip to impress the people looking at your resume is to quantify your experience. For example, “Tutored high school students” sounds much less impressive than “Taught weekly calculus and physics classes to a group of eight high school seniors in preparation for their AP exams. Six students recieved a score of 5/5 and two recieved a 4/5.”

WRITING A COVER LETTER

Your Name Typed

Don’t forget to sign your name before faxing or mailing the letter and keep a copy for your records! If you are sending a cover letter by email, copy and paste the letter into the body of the email message. You do not have to electronically sign your letter.

28

Your resume is one of the most important pieces of any job application. It is a written compilation of your education, work experience, credentials, and accomplishments.

A cover letter is a one-page statement of your objective to highlight your skills and interests in a particular field/ position. It should communicate to recruiter or employer why you are a good match for the company and the desired position. Take the time to craft a good letter and proofread it very carefully before sending. If your cover letter has errors, your whole application might get thrown out!


ACING THE INTERVIEW It’s always important to prepare for your interview. You not only need to know yourself well, but also the company, industry, and position you’re applying for. Be sure to do your research and know your facts. Questions you might be asked in an interview include: }} Can you tell me a little about yourself? (Careful! This shouldn’t be about your personal life. Use this as an opportunity to pitch yourself.) }} Walk me through your resume. }} What do you know about our company? }} How did you hear about this position and why did you apply? }} Tell me about a conflict you’ve faced at work and how you overcame it. }} What do you like to do outside of work or school? }} Where do you see yourself in 5 years? How do you think this industry will change in that time?

LinkedIn is a valuable resource for researching and connecting with employers and other businesspeople. }} Be sure to have a professional headshot with a simple background. }} Connect with people you’ve previously met or worked with. The better your connections, the better the recommendations, so be careful not to add random strangers. }} List your experiences and give 2-3 bullet points detailing/showcasing what you did. Remember to be concise and quantify if possible. }} Use key words and power verbs in your profile so search engines can find you, increasing your chances of offers.

}} What would you do in your first 90 days in this position?

A thank you goes a long way

Writing a thank you email after an interview is a necessity that you should not compromise. In fact, many employers think less of candidates who fail to follow-up promptly. Don’t send a thank you email as soon as you walk out of the interview, wait a few hours but no later than 24 hours after the interview. If any topics stood out and sparked a conversation during the interview, don’t be shy to include it. Show enthusiasm and appreciation for their time, but remember to keep it concise. A thank you email should be 1-2 paragraphs.

“Do you have any questions for me?” is a question asked at the end of every interview, but you don’t have to wait until it’s over to ask your interviewer questions! It’s actually a good idea to ask any questions you have throughout the interview. It’s more natural and can help you apply yourself more to the position. It also helps avoid any confusion afterwards. Questions to ask your interviewer include: }} What are some skills and qualities you look for in employees/interns? }} How has your company’s culture/habits influenced or changed you? }} What do you like about working at this company? }} What responsibilities does this position entail? }} What is the biggest issue your staff is currently facing and would I be in a position to help you solve this problem? What do you like to do outside of work or school? At the end of the interview, you should ask the employer what the next step in the process is. This essential question shows you are interested in moving along in the process, and invites him/her to tell you how many other applicants there are for this position.


STYLE IN THE WORKPLACE

Dress For Success These students are ready to enter the business world with their sleek and mature attire. The clothes you wear in professional settings and interviews can affect your mood, energy, and how others may perceive you. So be prepared with outfit essentials and look your best as you dominate in the workplace.

Business Professional Price does not matter, as long as everything fits well. Plenty of people in Baruch look good on a budget. Impress and Inspire: Impress your employers and inspire your colleagues. Pick outfits that are timeless, and colors that are simple. CAREERS

Business Casual These models redefine the term business casual by dressing up with a more colorful polished twist.

Pop of Color In a business casual setting, not everything needs to be black, white, and grey. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to experiment with color combinations that compliment each other to start your day off bright! Items to add color to: Ties, Watches, Cufflinks Socks, Handkerchiefs

Color Coordinate The smallest detail could really make a difference in your entire ensemble. Make sure the color of your belt matches the color of your shoes and are made from similar materials! If you are wearing a watch, select the straps accordingly.

We want Baruch students to graduate satisfied with their undergraduate experience. More importantly, we want them to feel ready and prepared to enter the job market. We want more opportunities, services, and programs that will not only make our campus more enjoyable, but also a place that will empower students to reach for their dreams. The student body elects all Executive Board Members, Vice Presidential Senators, Representative Senators, University Student Senators and Board Members in April for the following academic year. Students can choose to run independently or with a party/slate by submitting a declaration of candidacy form to the Office of Student Life (OSL). The Student Election Review Committee (SERC) is comprised of faculty and students that monitors USG elections to ensure a fair election for all candidates.

To do all of this, we directly manage a budget of more than $1 million, derived from the Student Activity Fee that all undergraduate students pay as a part of their tuition.

We realize that we’re not the only organization on campus that wants to reach out to the everyday student with social, cultural, educational, and professional experiences on campus. Therefore, we focus on being the backbone to student clubs, aiding each of them with their unique missions. We think it goes without saying that if we work with club leaders to ensure club life’s prosperity, we will help student life grow. We look forward to partnering with clubs and departments to help organize more quality and diverse events to engage every student. To ensure an inclusive community, USG: }} Creates initiatives and programs to fulfill the needs of students }} Represents student interests on various college-wide committees with the school’s administrators }} Hosts and co-sponsors various large-scale events and parties }} Advocates on behalf of Baruch and CUNY students to legislators in Albany }} Funds, regulates, and supports student clubs and organizations
