Join the Fight Against Hunger: Serve a meal with Our Daily Bread on Tuesday 2/16

“Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal opposition to poverty”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

As we return to campus in this time of renewal, take some time to remember the vision of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Thousands of Baltimoreans of all ages, races, genders, and creeds are homeless and hungry. If you are not content with these numbers and ready to take action, join us Tuesday morning on February 16th to serve with Our Daily Bread in the heart of Baltimore. We will serve from 9am-1pm. Transportation and lunch will be provided.

If you are ready and willing to ease the hunger of so many in Baltimore, contact Melissa Huselton at huselton@umbc.edu or stop by The Shriver Center, the 1st floor of the Public Policy Building, (410) 455-2493.

Go "On the Road" with the Shriver Center to Northrop Grumman

Visit Northrop Grumman (http://www.northropgrumman.com/) to learn about Summer 2010 internships on Friday, February 26th.

Internships are a key strategy in the Electronic Systems (ES) sector college recruiting program. The purpose of the ES Summer Intern Program is to identify and hire students for summer and part-time jobs early in their academic careers, with the potential of their receiving full-time job offers during their final year of school.

In general, engineering/technical intern candidates must: 1) Be enrolled in an accredited bachelor's degree (or higher level) college/university program in an engineering/ technical major; 2) Have completed at least their sophomore year; 3) Have at least a 3.0/4.0 overall GPA; 4) Be available to work for 10 weeks during the summer 2010 semester, and 5) Be able to obtain a U.S. Government security clearance (U.S. citizenship is a pre-requisite; a current clearance is helpful, but not required). In most cases, intern candidates major in one of the following engineering curricula: Electrical, Mechanical, Computer, Computer Science/Software, Systems, Industrial/ Manufacturing, Engineering Physics, or related area. Many of our software/computer science internships involve real-time embedded systems, so some background in that area is helpful. Exposure to radar & other sensor technologies and/or RF/microwave/communications applications is also potentially useful.

To register for this tour, please RSVP via UMBCworks and e-mail your resume to Casey Miller at The Shriver Center (410-455-2493, cmille1@umbc.edu).
