Prepare for post-graduation  job interviews with these tips 
the student voice since 1904
healthy haBits
With graduation around thecorner, here are 10 tips for landingthat professional job and avoidinghaving to move back in with yourparents.
1. don’t paniC
Searching for a professional jobis a creative, yet vexing, process.However, as Bill Watterson,author of the “Calvin and Hobbes”comic strip, said, “You can’t justturn on creativity like a faucet.You have to be in the right mood.What mood is that? Last-minutepanic.”Even if soon-to-be graduateshave not even started a job search,it’s never too late to start, saidChance Clutter, career counselorfor the University.“While panic can help motivatestudents, it is going to take timeand effort,” Clutter said.
2. But don’t wait aroundtoo long
The National Center forEducation Statistics estimates1,791,000 students will graduatewith a bachelor’s degree in 2013,which means there is plenty of competition for job openings,Clutter said.“By delaying a job search,you might be missing thoseprofessional opportunities thatexist right now, but may notexist after the summer,” Cluttersaid. “If you are looking for thatcareer, waiting around isn’t goingto help.”
3. suit up!
When it comes time to ask for your graduation gift, Clutterrecommended asking for a suit towear to job interviews instead of the usual request for cash.“The suit will get you cashlater,” Clutter said.The University Career Center,located in 110 Burge Union,allows students to borrow up tofive pieces of professional attire touse for interviews.
4. Be aware of your onlinepresenCe
Most employers will do somesort of Internet search on jobcandidates, Clutter said, whichincludes Facebook and Twitter.“Nothing is private online,”Clutter said.Students can improve theironline image by using socialmedia, including creating aLinkedIn account and interactingwith potential employers online,Clutter said.
5. network, network,network 
Beyond LinkedIn, studentsshould actively make company contacts with potential employersat career fairs, with friends’employers or through internships,said Cynthia Valdivia, corporaterecruiting manager for AbengoaBioenergy Corporation inChesterfield, Mo.“In this world, it’s all about whoyou know,” Valdivia said. “All the jobs I’ve gotten are because of who I’ve known.”
6. treat past employerswell
Valdivia recommended neverspeaking ill of previous employers,especially in an interview.“If you’re talking bad aboutthem, you’ll talk bad about us,”Valdivia said.When considering hiring apotential employee, companiesdo look at work history and callreferences, said Misti Mustain,director of specialty services forLabette Center for Mental HealthServices, Inc., in Labette County,Kan.“We look for students whoshow they are looking for a careerand loyal to a company,” Mustainsaid.
7. volunteer outside work 
Employers are lookingfor balanced employees who volunteer and have other interestsoutside of work, Mustain said.Working unpaid internships doesnot count.“We favor people who do volunteer work because itshows they have a level of careand compassion about theircommunity,” Mustain said.Compassion is important inevery job that the Labette Centerhires for, including nurses,therapists and case managers.“We can teach you the skillsof working the job, but we valuepeople who have integrity,”Mustain said. “That’s not easily taught.”
8. Be aggressive. B-eaggressive!
Many students who come toClutter for career guidance say they are looking for any job.“Really, they’re not,” Cluttersaid. “We need to figure out wheretheir interests lie so we can focusthe search to be more intentionalabout the job search.”No matter the job hired for,Jeana McCune, manager of learning innovation for H&R Block in Kansas City, Mo., saidshe is looking for people who arepassionate about what they do.“It’s really important to talk about your passions and what yourcareer goals entail,” McCune said.“Even if you’re not graduating thisyear, it’s still important to haveyour career goals two to five yearsahead of time in mind.”To show interest in the company,Valdivia advised asking a questionat the end of the interview. Andof course, always follow up with athank-you note.“If you don’t hear anythingafter a week, follow up with aphone call or email,” Valdivia said.“It shows you’re persistent.”
9. Bring a resume to thejoB interview
Even if potential employersonly look at a resume an averageof 15 seconds before deciding togive a candidate an interview,Clutter said3 bringing a resumeto a job interview is a must.“One person didn’t get hiredbecause they didn’t bring theirresume,” Valdivia said. “We wantto make sure you’re prepared andpay attention to the details.”
10. rememBer, internshipsCan lead to full-timepositions
Even if students are only offered an internship rather thana full-time position, if it’s in a fieldthey want to be in, it’s still worthpursuing, Clutter said.“It’s a good way to get insidethe company and meet people,”Clutter said. “Around 50 percentor so will turn into a full-time job.

Food ethusiasts bri passio for utritio to campus
Having worked in an assistedliving facility for 10 years, KarlaWessling has seen the realities of anunhealthy lifestyle.“You see those people who havehad Type 2 diabetes for so long thattheir legs have been amputated,”she said.It was here that Wessling, a stu-dent in the dietetic program at KUMedical Center from Baldwin City,felt that she could do more. As sheworked her way up from cook todietary manager, she realized herdream of becoming a dietitian.It’s a natural career path forWessling, who has always workedin food service. From 1994 to 1998,she worked a block away from herhome at Baker University in thecafeteria. She said that althoughno one really cared about nutritionin the ’90s, she found a passion forproviding food to people.A self-described “cliché per-son,” Wessling loves cookingThanksgiving dinner on her ownfrom start to finish for she and herhusband’s extended family every year. She calls herself a “vegetableeater,” but would rather serve asweet, decadent dessert because itmakes people happy.After working at one end of thespectrum, Wessling did a 180 andspent last fall’s clinical portion of the internship at Children’s Mercy Hospital developing dietary strat-egies for patients and educatingtheir adult counterparts.Wessling hopes the messagereached them in more ways thanone.“Many of the children, they’reborn with different anomalies,where in the adult population,sometimes but not always . . . yourlifestyle habits turn into your healthproblem,” she said.Between the internship atChildren’s Mercy and watching her14-year-old son and his friendsgrow up, being around young peo-ple has played an important factorin Wessling’s desire to spread nutri-tional knowledge.Now at the management portionof her internship at KU Dining, shehas the opportunity to work witha slightly older yet equally criticaldemographic: college students.“My gear has changed,” she said.“I worked with the elderly and Ilearned about nutrition, but thenwatching children grow up actually made me passionate about pediat-ric nutrition.”Brandon Volz couldn’t stay away from KU Dining after graduatingin 2010. He loved his job he heldat the Studio at Hashinger as afreshman into his senior year, andthen returned about a year ago to asupervisor position at Oliver Halland now, North College Café.Volz has a passion for his job,where he gets to experiment withnew ingredients and recipes that arenewer, better, fresher and healthier.His blue eyes seem to light up ashe speaks with genuine excitementabout the different flavor profilesof fish, learning to sauté and mov-ing out of his comfort zone to work with vegetables, grains and fruit.“It doesn’t ever feel like work,”he said. “I love everything aboutthis job.”He isn’t much of a baker, he said,but he is an avid fan of cheesecake.In fact, his recipe for mini cheese-cake shooters made its way to thedessert tray at North College Café.The atmosphere of wellness KUDining promotes prompted theenergetic Volz to make a change inhis own life. While he was workingat Applebee’s after graduation, hewoke up one day feeling lethargic,weighed down and subdued. Heneeded a change of atmosphereand took advantage of the oppor-tunity to return.Now, Volz and the staff of NorthCollege Café try to personally con-nect with their diners. He givesan example of an upset studentwhen the Café runs out of Fruity Pebbles.“When that happens, we explainto our staff that it’s not necessarily that that person’s crazy or anything,it means maybe something hap-pened to them during the day —maybe the only thing they wantedto make their day better was a bowlof Fruity Pebbles, and that’s whatwe want to be able to provide,” hesaid.When Volz comes to work, hefinds interacting with studentsmakes the job meaningful.“I get excited when I come towork,” Volz. “There’s a vibranceand an energy that’s really present.It’s not just coming in and handingthem a sandwich, it’s making a dif-ference in their day.”For Volz, cooking has taught himto be fearless in trying new things.His own mother’s words continueto echo through his mind.“My mom always told me thatI’m not allowed when it comes toeating, I can’t say I don’t like some-thing until I try it once,” he said.At her home in Baldwin City,Wessling tries to keep fresh optionsfor she and her son, Ryan.Although Wessling admitted tonot eating vegetables regularly untilcollege, her son loves vegetablesand asked for a Magic Bullet forhis birthday to make smoothies.“That’s what makes me think,‘Yeah, I’ve probably instilled somegood habits into his life,”’ Wesslingsaid. “And hopefully, he’ll keepthem.”

Lawrence oers diverse summer ftness choices 
When Ted Johnson walks by Fraser Hall, he notices somethingintriguing about the bloomingyellow and red tulips in the flowerbed. Unlike their cousins only a few hundred feet away by themarquee outside Watson Library that stretch straight up to the sun,these blooms all bend slightly tothe northeast.Johnson, a professor emeritus of French who has walked past Frasersince coming to the University in1968, can’t help but wonder why.On this year’s Stop Day walkingtour, “The Perspectives on theMonument of Mount Oread,” hehopes to find out.“There’s a certain humor inthese things,” Johnson said.For more than 20 years,Johnson has led a public walkingtour of campus, focusing on his-torically significant locations. Asthe tour covers different topics of discussion over the course of ninehours, attendees are encouragedto come and go.When the Spencer Art Museumopened its doors in the new build-ing in 1978, Johnson felt liberatedfrom boring projector slides as herealized he could incorporate realworks of art into his classroom.Explaining that “campus” comesfrom the Latin word for “field,” hewould lead his humanities classesacross campus, discovering pinetrees and grasses that aren’t nativeto the state of Kansas. Thesestrolls inspired an annual walkingtour open to the public.“The word ‘idea’ comes fromthe word ‘to see things different-ly,’” Johnson said. “On this tour,the idea is to stroll around. Ideaspop up, and then we cultivatethem.”As the sun peeked from 14thStreet on his first tour in 1991,Johnson explained how Lawrence,Tiananmen Square and ancientRoman cities are all arrangedalike on an east-west grid. Tounderstand the Natural History Museum building, he considersthat the limestone is 320 millionyears old — older than the stego-saurus of the Jurassic period. Asthe group passed the Campanileon a recent tour, another profes-sor recognized a line from anunfinished Cicero poem, “Cedantarma togae,” engraved on theWWII memorial.“I learn so much each time Ido this,” Johnson said. “If thereare, say, 10 or 20 people in thegroup, we have hundreds of yearsof experience right there, of com-petence and knowledge that they can contribute.”The tour begins Friday morn-ing at 9 a.m. in front of the NaturalHistory Museum. Events end at 5p.m. outside Spooner Hall with asummary of the day’s dialogues.

He saidpeople who bike in Lawrence arelucky because they have multipleoptions for trails. Besides ClintonLake, there is a nine-mile RiverTrail in North Lawrence. Earhartsaid biking can be beneficial tocollege students because it’s aneasy way to get around town.“With campus on a hill, youget a workout just going to class,”Earhart said.Earhard also said biking is agood way to kill a hangover.The Ambler Student RecreationFitness Center launched its bikerental program in April.

WORCESER, Mass. — A mag-istrate judge on Monday agreed torelease a riend o Boston Mara-thon bombing suspect Dzhokharsarnaev rom ederal custody while he awaits trial or allegedly lying to ederal investigators prob-ing the bombings.Robel Phillipos, 19, was chargedlast week with lying to investigatorsabout visiting sarnaev’s collegedorm room aer the bombings.Te University o MassachusettsDartmouth student aces a maxi-mum o eight years in prison i convicted.Prosecutors initially asked thatPhillipos be held while he awaitstrial, arguing he poses a seriousight risk. But both sides said ina court motion led Monday they agreed that Phillipos should bereleased on $100,000 bond, acehome connement and wear anelectronic monitoring bracelet.“We are condent that in theend we will be able to clear hisname,” deense attorney DeregeDemissie said.Assistant U.S. Attorney JohnCapin said documents led overthe weekend by Phillipos’ deenseattorneys, including many afda- vits showing support rom amily and riends, might be viewed asindirectly questioning the govern-ment’s case against Phillipos.“Te government stands by itsallegations,” Capin said.Deense attorney Susan Churchdescribed Phillipos as a well-liked,honor roll student with many riends. At least 50 relatives, riendsand other supporters attended thecourt hearing.Church emphasized that Philli-pos is not accused o helping sar-naev and his brother plan or carry out the bombings.“At no time did Robel have any prior knowledge o this marathonbombing,” she said.Magistrate Judge MarianneBowler agreed to the strict housearrest during a hearing Monday a-ternoon. She told Phillipos he wasallowed to leave the house only ormeetings with his lawyers or trueemergencies.It was not immediately clearwhen Phillipos would be released.Meanwhile, a uneral directortrying to nd a cemetery to takethe body o sarnaev’s older broth-er and alleged accomplice, amer-lan, pledged to ask the city o Cam-bridge to allow him to be buried ina city-owned cemetery because thebrothers lived in Cambridge orthe last decade.Cambridge City Manager RobertHealy said he is urging sarnaev’samily not to make the request.“Te difcult and stressul e-orts o the citizens o the City o Cambridge to return to a peaceullie would be adversely impactedby the turmoil, protests, and widespread media presence at such aninterment,” Healy said in a state-ment Sunday.Worcester uneral director PeterStean said he hasn’t been able tond a cemetery in Massachusettswilling to accept the remains o a-merlan, who was killed ollowinga gunbattle with police aer thebombings. He said i Cambridgeturns him down, he will seek helprom state ofcials. Stean saidMonday he is looking outside o Massachusetts and does not think Russia will take the body.Gov. Deval Patrick said Monday the question o what to do with thebody is a “am-ily issue” thatshould not bedecided by thestate or ederalgovernment.He said am-ily members had“options” andhe hoped they would make adecision soon.He declined to say whether hethought it would be appropriateor the body to be buried in Mas-sachusetts.“We showed the world in theimmediate aermath o the attackswhat a civilization looks like, andI’m proud o what we showed, andI think we continue to do that by stepping back and let the amily make their decisions,” the gover-nor told reporters.Phillipos is accused o ly-ing to investigators about visit-ing Dzhokhar sarnaev’s collegedorm room onApril 18, threedays aer thebombings. woother riendswere chargedwith conspiringto obstruct jus-tice by taking abackpack withreworks anda laptop romsarnaev’s dorm room. All ourhad studied at UMass Dartmouth.Phillipos’ attorneys said in courtdocuments their client had noth-ing to do with the deadly bomb-ings and isn’t a ight risk.In letters led with the motion,riends and amily members urgedthe court to release Phillipos onbail, describing him as peaceuland non-violent.“I was shocked and stunnedwhen I heard the news o his ar-rest. I could not control my tears,”wrote Zewditu Alemu, his aunt.“I do not believe that my belovedRobel crosses the line intention-ally to support or assist such a hor-rendous act against us the peopleo the USA. By nature he does notlike violence. He loves peaceul en- vironment.Phillipos’ resume, led in court,shows he was majoring in market-ing with a minor in sociology atUMass Dartmouth and expectedto graduate in 2015.Te sarnaev brothers are ac-cused o carrying out the bomb-ings using pressure cookers packedwith explosives, nails, ball bearingsand metal shards. Te attack killedthree people and injured more than260 others near the marathon’s n-ish line.

OPEKA, Kan. — Advocates orthe disabled Monday praised Gov.Sam Brownback’s plan to use pro- jected savings rom the state’s Med-icaid program to pay or in-homeservices and said they also will pushor a long-term plan to end waitinglists or such assistance.Te Kansas Developmental Dis-abilities Policy Group’s endorse-ment o the Republican governor’splan came even as advocates orthe developmentally disabled re-mained at odds with Brownback’sadministration over including theirservices next year in an overhaul o Medicaid, which covers health careor the needy and disabled.State ocials said last monththat the overhaul o Medicaidwould save the state $62 millionmore than previously anticipatedduring the current scal year andthe scal year beginning July 1. Teoverhaul turned administration o most o the Medicaid program overto three private health insurancecompanies this year and renamedit KanCare.Brownback predicted that theoverhaul not only would lower thestate’s cost but provide better-coor-dinated health care or participants.Te governor has proposed using$8 million rom the state’s “Kan-Care dividend” savings on in-homeservices or the physically and de- velopmentally disabled, plus $10.5million in ederal unds, to moveabout 600 people of o waiting listsduring the next scal year.Coalition members said the gov-ernor’s proposal, i adopted, wouldrepresent the most signicant prog-ress in years toward reducing thewaiting lists. But they said they’dlike to see Kansas go urther andcommit to eliminating its waitinglists, which contained about 5,400people as o last month, accordingto the state.“Te previous administrationsnever addressed it at all,” said Ron-da Klein, a opeka resident and themother o a 19-year-old son, Cur-tis, who is autistic, developmentally disabled and prone to seizures. “It’sa great rst step.”Kansas legislators plan to re-convene Wednesday aer a springbreak to wrap up business or theyear. Lawmakers must nish a statebudget o roughly $14.5 billion orthe next scal year, and Brown-back’s proposal on Medicaid sav-ings is among the major issues ac-ing House and Senate negotiators.Some amilies wait years or in-home services that can include anattendant to help a disabled childwith daily tasks. Te state has sepa-rate waiting lists or people withdevelopmental disabilities andpeople with physical disabilities,and some people with developmentdisabilities are receiving some butnot all o the services they sought.According to the state, as o April,in-home services cost an average o $1,765 a month or the physically disabled and $3,534 a month orthe developmentally disabled.im Wood, manager o the Dis-ability Rights Center o Kansas’“End the Wait” campaign, saidthe coalition isn’t speciying how quickly it wants the state to elimi-nate the waiting lists but added,“We need to have an efectively working plan.”Advocates o the developmen-tally disabled were among the most vocal critics o the Brownback ad-ministration’s overhaul o Medicaidand won a year’s reprieve in havingtheir in-home services adminis-tered by the private health insur-ance companies. Tey’re seekinga permanent “carve out,” arguingthat private companies aren’t well-equipped to deal with ongoing ser- vices.But Angela de Rocha, spokes-woman or the Kansas Departmentor Aging and Disability Services,noted that the administrationprojects that carving out servicesor the developmentally disabledwould cost an additional $9 mil-lion during the next scal year and“jeopardizes the state’s ability to ad-dress the waiting lists.”
