FACS invites you to its semiannual ‘Grades to Green,’ a workshop for graduating seniors, on December 11th from 12 to 3:00pm in DFA 1.101. Whether you are seeking work in or outside the arts, or just need a job to support your creative expression, this workshop will help you transition from Grades to $Green$. Strengthen your business etiquette, sharpen your networking skills and improve your resumes as you prepare to graduate.
The Job Search: How to Talk About Your Major to an Employer Study of the Fine Arts develops creativity, communication, and discipline: all important traits employers seek. But it is not enough to complete the degree; you need to be able to communicate how your degree is valuable. You will leave this session with the ability to articulate why your major IS relevant, inside and outside the arts, and strategies for finding work.
Statistics show the majority of people find work through someone they know. Networking is about more than schmoozing. This session will give you the tools to maintain a professional social media presence, develop a personal pitch you can use when meeting someone at a reception or other event, and offer strategies for those who run at the mere mention of networking.
What is appropriate to wear to interviews or other business events? How do I make small talk? Which side should I wear my nametag? How do I balance a glass, appetizer plate and still shake hands? How do I handle RSVPs? This session will cover these topics and more so you can navigate situations from small meetings to large receptions with ease!
10 minute Resume Reviews
Bring your resume and test it out with a local professional from the Blanton Museum, Conspirare or other arts organizations. No resume? Go to the FACS website at http://bit.ly/V8vjsm and BRING A DRAFT!
Lunch will be provided. Please register at http://bit.ly/SsHLwX. Contact FACS at 512.232.7333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look

Last week the Resume Reviews and Fine Arts Internship & Networking Fair we held with Fine Arts Career Services were a huge success! The Fair held the HIGHEST attendance rate for fine arts students ever, congrats! If you were unable to attend I highly encourage you participate in the next fair held in the spring.
Also, we were able to give funding through our appropriations application to a several fabulous organizations in the College of Fine Arts.
Senate Update, on Thursday's General Meeting October 18th, two pieces of legislation were passed. The first, S.R. 1203 In Support of a New Honor Code for The University of Texas at Austin. The new honor code reads "As a student of The University of Texas at Austin, I shall abide by the core values of the university and uphold academic integrity." While significantly cutting down from the former 41 word honor code, it was designed to hold students accountable while maintaining a positive tone towards the students. The second, S.R. 1205 - In Support of a Standardized Degree Plan Formats will work to view all degree plans in the different colleges to form a standardized plan on the university level.
If you have interest in attending a Senate General Meeting, they are held every other week, the next is this Thursday, November 1st at 7 p.m. in SAC 2.302, the Legislative Assembly room.
We are still accepting submissions for the T-shirt Contest until Monday, November 12th at 5 p.m. Submit your design for new council t-shirts to email@example.com.
