Parking Permit Machines Out of Service Sept. 3-7

The six parking permit machines on campus will be out of service Sept. 3-7, 2015. During this downtime, the permit stations will be being reprogrammed to offer free parking after 4:00 p.m. and on weekends, as well as to allow new options for purchasing a daily permit.

During the Sept. 3-7 downtime, parking permits will not be required to park on campus. Please continue, however, to park in appropriate parking locations. Beginning Tues., Sept. 8, 2015, the machines will be back in service. We are looking forward to offering new parking options as we begin fall quarter.

If you have any questions regarding the process, please contact Sergeant Edwin Lucero or Director Blacksmith at ext. 4633. Thank you.

Job Seekers’ Roundtable: Tell Me About Yourself – Thurs., August 27

Join us this Thurs., August 27 from 1-2:30 p.m. in the Workforce Education office (bottom floor of FOSS) for a Job Seekers’ Roundtable exploring the most dreaded interview question: “Tell Me About Yourself.”

So you got the call: You’ve been asked to interview!

It can be a feeling of excitement, even relief, but sometimes accompanied with a bit of anxiety.

What many of us don’t consider is that the interview is more a conversation than it is a test. How do we get past the edginess and jitters of a looming job interview? Being prepared is a given, but being yourself is an imperative! This Thursday we’ll give this subject some airtime. If you haven’t yet, you will get an interview eventually, so you might as well come by, right? So please share some skills and insights, have some laughs – and of course some great coffee and refreshments.

Note: this is our final Thursday meeting of Roundtable. There will be no Roundtable next week, and the meetings will resume on Fridays (same time and place) on Fri., September 11.

Parking Lot Striping Project Begins Tues., August 25

Just a heads up that, beginning Tues., August 24, we’ll be working on updating the striping in the parking lots campus-wide. This will be an ongoing project that we hope to have finished by Sept. 6 at the latest. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this project, and will try to keep the inconvenience to a minimum. However, as most lots will be affected at one time or another, on certain days it may be necessary to park in a lot that’s not your usual lot. Please pay attention to any posted signage and park accordingly. Thank you.

Please contact Safety and Security with any questions at (206) 546-4633 with any questions.
