Extra credit #1: two page paper with analysis of your presentation success
Due: June 7th
Students can gain extra credit toward their final grade by reviewing the video of their project presentation in the Varsi Media lab. The Media Lab option may be replaced with a YouTube video of each groups presentation if logistics allow. The available option will be communicated after the first day of presentations.
After watching the presentation, write a one-two page response to the following:
- The three presentation techniques I did well through out the presentation were...
- The two areas I need to improve on are ….
- Why and what steps will you take to begin to improve?
The extra credit assignment is due during the last class session.
Extra credit #2: networking - start to build your network
Due: June 7th
For those of you that are interested in doing the extra credit I mentioned last night, here are the details again.
- Sign up for the free version of LinkedIn and fill in a profile for yourself. www.linkedin.com
- Get at least 5 people to join your network (these can be classmates), so if 5 of you do it, all five of you are set).
- Run a sesearch for a company that you would be interested in working for (Cisco, Network Appliance, Sun, etc.) and include "Santa Clara University". i.e. the search would be Cisco "Santa Clara University" . That search will bring up several dozen people. Copy and paste any one of the names on that list and e-mail that to me.
Again, I think this is a resource that you will use a lot, especially in the early stages of your career.
