Celebrate 150 Years Of Howard University #HU150

HU150

Howard Family,

There’s nothing I’d rather do to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of Howard University than to be surrounded by Alumni, creating new memories. Any time I can be a part of that happening, I’m all in.

Thursday, March 2nd, join us after work in a celebration of our Alma Mater.

Entry is FREE with RSVP, and doors open at 5pm.

I’ll see you there!

-Be Moore

Leaving Home – Ep 4: Moving Into the College Freshman Dorm

Those of us who drove or flew in to college can relate to this part of the story. I personally remember driving down in my father’s Nissan Pathfinder packed to the brim with every little thing that I thought was important to me from my room at home including EVERY shoe, pair of jeans and accessory I owned. HA! What a mistake in hindsight.

Leaving Home – An HBCU Story – Part 2 – “First Impressions”

The second installment of “Leaving Home – An HBCU Story,” which traces the journey of a rising freshman as she leaves Los Angeles to attend college at North Carolina A&T University. There is such a juggle of emotions that we all experience during times of transition and growth. We did our best to capture it all in hopes of starting the college conversation with the kids in our families and neighborhoods.

Google is Actively Recruiting HBCU Alumni

Greetings from Google!

As you may have heard, Google is hiring! 2011 is slated to be one of our most aggressive hiring years, and we are working to find top talent. Over the past few years HBCU graduates have made significant contributions to Google’s success. We are excited to continue our relationship with HBCUs and hire their very best graduates to join our team.

Google will be hosting functions in a number of major cities as we seek to make contact with HBCU graduates that may have an interest in our organization. The first of these events will be held at the Google Atlanta Office (10 10th Street NE Suite 600 Atlanta, GA 30309) on Wednesday March 30, 2011 at 7PM. We are targeting non-engineering majors from the graduating classes of 2006-2010. This event will give participants a glimpse into what we have to offer here at Google. They will hear from current Googlers, receive information on positions that are currently open, and have the chance to speak with recruiters who will be on-site to answer questions. Additionally, this is a great time to network, not only with Googlers, but also with peers.

We would appreciate your assistance in distributing this exciting information to members of your organization that are currently based in Atlanta. Those interested in attending can click HERE for registration information. Do you have a colleague, friend, peer, or family member that also meets the event criteria? Feel free to pass this information along! Please note that we have a limited number of seats for this event, so an RSVP is required. We will send a confirmation e-mail to those we are able to accommodate.
