Hello all:

I'm very pleased to announce the launch of MCTC's new job bank for students and alumni- MCTCJobs through the NACELInk Network.

Students will have the option of searching for postings specific to MCTC or tapping into the NACELInk Network which features 1000's of jobs every day.

Students can post resumes and set up job search agents to get leads sent directly to their email accounts. They can also check the calendar to find out about Career Development Services events such as workshops and job fairs.

The web address for our job bank is: with a link to the MCTC web site in the works. You as faculty and staff can sign up for a free account under students/alumni if you would like to be able to search for postings for your students.

Training sessions for using the new job bank will be announced soon and will be held in T2500. Faculty and staff are welcome to attend the training sessions.

MLA Annual Conference and Membership Deal

The Annual Conference, November 19-21, in Bloomington, MN, is just around the corner. You can find a draft schedule of programs on the MLA website, as well as the Annual Conference registration form (PDF). The online form will be active in the next few weeks. Look for an announcement soon.

If you haven't renewed your membership for 2008, take the time now to do so. The Individual Membership Application can be found on the homepage.

And a special invitation to potential MLA Members you may know...

New Members only! Join MLA by paying your 2009 membership fees and MLA will welcome you to the 2008 Annual Conference at member registration rates. To take advantage of this limited, one-time offer, new members must pay for both 2009 membership and 2008 conference registration fees. This offer is extended by the MLA Board because of the late date of this year's annual conference, to promote attendance following the PLA conference that was held in Minneapolis this year, and to encourage membership in the association.

Need more information or have questions? Feel free to contact me directly.
