Teslers’ Time Out It is cold and flu season, so keep well and keep warm! Stock up on wool and merino clothing, waterproof shoes and scarves - then head out to some of these events because Wellington doesn’t stop just because of a cool breeze ;-)

A Note on RSVPs A lot of events lately have required an RSVP. This is so we know how many tickets to book, how many people to expect, how much food to prepare etc. It is VERY important that you RSVP on time, or we will simply think no one wants to come! Just a quick email will suffice.

Vic Careers Expo - Volunteers Wanted I recommend you all check out the Vic Careers expo on 17 May, 11am - 2pm. You may not be planning a career in NZ, but it is a great chance to interact with professionals and sign up to learn about more opportunities throughout the year! They also require some student volunteers to help run the fair: Outgoing students with an interest in career opportunities who have a professional attitude and are comfortable engaging with employers and students. You must be totally reliable –this is one of the university’s most important events and we must be able to depend on you.
