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. 5) Anti-Sex Trafficking Events Sex in Our City TODAY, Monday, March 30, 2009 5 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Management Building, Room 200 Stephanie Davis Policy Advisor to the Mayor on Women's Issues Child prostitution is a tragic reality in the city of Atlanta.

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.
