IN THE NEWS

Seeing the unseen
With a degree in chemical engineering from Oregon State University, Melanie Jenkins took a job as a process engineer at Micron Tehcnology in Boise, Idaho where she spent 12-hour shifts in the cleanroom. Even though she was learning a lot at Micron, her ultimate goal was to have a career in research. “I wanted to work in research, because I want to learn about things that haven’t been discovered or known before. The thought of always learning is really appealing to me,” Jenkins said. EECS

Computer science for everyone
"It all started on the bus,” said Martin Erwig of his new book, “Once Upon an Algorithm,” published this year by The MIT Press, which won a 2017 Best Book Award from American Book Fest. Erwig’s seven-minute commute by bus was the perfect situation to inspire him to boil down computer science for the general public. Discussions naturally developed on those daily bus rides with many of the same people. EECS

Monday, January 8 | 6 - 8 p.m. | Old World Deli, 341 2nd St., Corvallis
Robots will increasingly rub shoulders with people at home and in the work place, so machines need social attributes: humor, personality and body language. Heather Knight, an assistant professor in computer science at Oregon State University, aims to develop machines that use their social qualities to empower people, not replace them. She directs the CHARISMA Lab (Collaborative Humans and Robots: Interaction, Sociability, Machine Learning, and Art) at OSU.

Martin Erwig Book Signing
Monday, January 8 | 7:30 PM | Powell's City of Books, Portland
Picture a computer scientist, staring at a screen and clicking away frantically on a keyboard, hacking into a system, or perhaps developing an app. Now delete that picture. In Once Upon an Algorithm, Martin Erwig explains computation as something that takes place beyond electronic computers, and computer science as the study of systematic problem solving. Erwig points out that many daily activities involve problem solving. Getting up in the morning, for example: You get up, take a shower, get dressed, eat breakfast. This simple daily routine solves a recurring problem through a series of well-defined steps. In computer science, such a routine is called an algorithm.

Ask a Credible Career Coach: Can I Negotiate When the Job Description Lists a Salary?
Negotiations are often nerve-racking for candidates because they don’t want to ask for too much and have an employer withdraw an offer. But I want to give you reassurance that as much as you fear losing out on an opportunity, companies also fear losing great talent (like you!) by coming in below expectations. That’s why companies and candidates often have an open discussion to meet somewhere in the middle. The Muse

How to answer 5 of the toughest interview questions
The better prepared you are for each type of interviewer, the better your odds are at landing a new title and office environment that’ll start your next lap around the sun on a positive foot.

Five Ways To Answer The Question 'Why Should We Hire You?'
The worst way to answer the question "Why should we hire you?" is to say "Because I'm smart, I'm hard-working and I want the job." Every candidate will say that! You have to change things up. You have to shift the script. That's the only way you will remain in the interviewer's mind after the interview is over. Forbes
