IU in the news

Job outlook brightens for new grads -- just barely
Associated Press, June 9 -- Indiana University's Kelley School of Business devised a plan to improve the chances for graduates in its residential master's in business administration program. It included a dean's letter to 26,000 alumni, an electronic booklet featuring students' resumes and a job bank run by students with jobs for those still searching. That last effort was dubbed "The Lonely Hearts Job Search Club." "A simple plan, delivered to the right people with a clear objective, can go a long way in helping students during a challenging economy get to where they want to be," said Erik Medina, the school's director of graduate career services. Last month, 74 percent of students had job offers at graduation, compared with 66 percent last year, he said. Full story.

"Visual alignment from the side is far more difficult than alignment from behind an object," said Hitzeman, an amateur golfer. "You have to use every tool you can get to align a putt." Full story.
