From the Wave Energy Prize to Now—Catching-up with AquaHarmonics
In 2016, AquaHarmonics took home the $1.5 million grand prize in the Energy Department's Wave Energy Prize, an 18-month design-build-test competition to increase the energy capture potential of wave energy devices. Now, more than two years later, the Oregon-based company is planning to test a larger version of the winning device in the open ocean. The Water Power Technology Office (WPTO) recently sat down with AquaHarmonics co-founder Alex Hagmüller to learn about their recent device testing and plans for future deployment. AquaHarmonics was founded by Alex Hagmüller (’09 B.S. Mechanical Engineering), Max Ginsburg (’10 B.S. Electrical Computer Engineering). EIN Newsdesk

JOB SEARCH AND CAREER ADVICE

The STAR Method: The Secret to Acing Your Next Job Interview
The STAR interview technique offers a straightforward format you can use to answer behavioral interview questions—those prompts that ask you to provide a real-life example of how you handled a certain kind of situation at work in the past. Thinking of a fitting example for your response is just the beginning. Then you also need to share the details in a compelling and easy-to-understand way—without endless rambling. The Muse

How to assess company culture to find the best fit
It’s useful to understand what kind of company culture you’re walking into, but as an interviewee, the situation isn’t always clear. Luckily, there are ways to sniff out a toxic workplace or an environment that’s just not for you. Try these steps to get the real scoop. Monster

How to Describe Weaknesses in a Job Interview
Those who come well-prepared for this inquiry will have responses that reinforce their suitability for the position. Unfortunately, the greatest weakness question is tricky. Just as doctors pledge to do no harm when taking the Hippocratic Oath, job seekers should promise not to harm their chances by bungling this classic question. U.S. News & World Report
