4) Platanos and Collard Greens
Tuesday, March 31, Ferst Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. FREE!

The Student Advisory Council to OMED, a coalition of 25 minority student organizations
- is having a *one night special presentation of the off-broadway hit play Platanos and
Collard Greens. Platanos and Collard Greens, written by David Lamb and directed by
Summer Hill Seven, tells the story of two college students, Freeman, an African-
American man and Angelita, a Latino woman, both forced to confront and overcome
cultural and racial prejudices while defending their bond from the biases held by family
and friends.

Platanos is a thought-provoking romantic comedy that tactfully addresses stereotypes,
prejudices and urban myths that exist between African Americans and Latinos, within the
context of Hip-Hop, humor, and satire. The play impels the audience to evaluate
pervasive stereotypes. Platanos humorously displays these common, yet outrageous,
viewpoints while deftly shooting them down and poetically exposing them as
misrepresentations of reality. The audience, while laughing out loud, is likely to question
conventional attitudes held about themselves and others.

Free general admission; Doors open at 6:30pm. Visit
www.platanosandcollardgreens.com
<http://www.platanosandcollardgreens.com/> for more information about the play.

7) Tech Beautification Day, Register by April 3

Tech Beautification Day (TBD) was started in 1998 as a day of service where students
could give back to their campus through a combination of general cleanup, landscaping,
and bringing together the Georgia Tech Community as a whole. Since then, TBD has
grown immensely in terms of volunteer numbers and variety of projects. We are now
celebrating the eleventh year anniversary of this community service event held each
spring on Georgia Tech’s campus.

2008 will be the first time that TBD will be the official Greek Week Philanthropy. By

12) Women for Hire Career Expo
Tuesday, March 31
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Cobb Galleria
Two Galleria Parkway
Atlanta, GA 30339
http://www.womenforhire.com/career_expos/spring_09/atlanta

*Free admission
*Free resume critiquing
*Resumes required for admittance
*Business attire required
RESEARCH THE WEEK BEFORE: Visit our website and review the participating
employers that interest you. No recruiter wants to hear, "So what do you have for me?"
Check out their websites. Familiarize yourself with each organization, its history and
trends in the industry. Prepare a few questions to ask each recruiter.

PREP YOUR 30-SECOND PITCH: Practice a short pitch to tell an interviewer who
you are, what position interests you and why you are suited for the job. Have a friend
critique it or stand in front of a mirror to get it down. This will also come in handy when
meeting other attendees.

DRESS FOR SUCCESS: A suit is always acceptable. Blue, gray and black outfits are
never out of fashion. Adding a dash of bright color - a scarf, a top or an accessory -can
accent your outfit and make you memorable. (We have a strict policy on professional
business attire for admittance. No sneakers, jeans or sweats of any kind.)

REVIEW YOUR RESUME: Even though you'll have a chance to get professional
advice at the event, ask yourself if your current resume reflects the very best you. Check
our resume template for help.
