Of Cambridge, MA Interest Only

Posted by Derek

Every year there's a big Cambridge Science Festival, which many companies and institutions around here get involved with. My own company is no exception, and we're holding a "Networking Event" for students in academia tomorrow afternoon. Flyers for it went out a while back to all sorts of institutions around the area, but for anyone who's also a reader of this blog, I wanted to mention that I'll be giving a 30 minute talk at this one. So if you're in the target audience, feel free to stop by (4 PM Wednesday, 200 Sidney Street). I believe that there was an RSVP by last Friday, but drop me an email if you missed it, because I don't think we're going to lock anyone out if you really want to come, either.

Your posted address for the meeting brings back fun memories. Having worked at or about 88 Sidney Street for a time, I can attest that the atmosphere of science and academia that exists in Cambridge is sorely missed by this former resident.

Someone should record this and place it on U-Tube.
It would be interesting to hear Derek speak.

BTW- If you have to attend a career fair, you're half way to dead. Save yourself the cab fair and head directly to the nearest bar.

Companies send their recruiters to the best schools directly, and all these 'fairs' (nothing personal against this one, you might get some useful info there) are just token efforts to appear open and balanced in their recruiting.
