Job Seekers’ Roundtable, Workforce Education (Ground Fl. FOSS)
Fri., March 11: 1-2:30 p.m.
office
Join us this Fri., March 11 for a Job Seekers’ Roundtable designed to get you placed through Accountemps! We’re in the Workforce Education Office (room 5116 in the bottom floor of FOSS, 5000 bldg.) from 1-2:30 p.m.

Are you ready to get a paycheck? Is it a temporary job you have in mind – that is, just something to make do until the dream job arrives — or is it something more permanent in an office setting? Either way, if you stop by Roundtable this Friday, your chances of becoming employed very soon will increase dramatically. Below is an excerpt from a very nice card I once received from Roundtable participant, Kathy Tiedman:

“My contact with your speaker from Accountemps facilitated contact with a recruiter at Robert Half and ultimately led to my placement in a long term, temporary position.”

Kathy went on to say that the experience boosted her confidence and has added some attractive cache to her resume. And wouldn’t you know it, Elizabeth Goodnow from Accountemps/Robert Half Agency is our featured guest for this Friday! Please come by, bring your resume and business card, and arrange for a one-on-one with Elizabeth. She and the folks at Accountemps have been awesome over the past couple years and have landed many Roundtablers much needed employment.

We’ll of course have coffee and treats on hand, compliments of Central Market. Have a friend or family member looking for work? Please bring them along.

See you this Friday – and as always, Good Luck Out There!

“Live! From the Last Night of My Life,” Campus Theater
Fri., March 11: 7:30 p.m.
live last night
Shoreline Community College Theater Department is proud to present Seattle based Wayne Rawley’s “Live! From the Last Night of My Life.”

Doug Sample is a man who has decided his experiment with life has, for all intents and purposes, failed. He has achieved nothing, accomplished nothing, and has nothing except his graveyard shift at a local gas station and Mini-Mart. He has decided that the best thing for everyone would be if he shot himself in the head, and he is planning to do it right in front of the Mini-Mart’s security cameras at the end of this, his last shift. But before the night is over, Doug will be visited by his past, his present, his possible futures, and some particularly annoying customers as he struggles with some of life’s most challenging questions like “Why should I go on?”, “What does it all mean?”, and perhaps most importantly, “Did I remember to change the cherry syrup in the Slushie Machine?”

Written by Wayne Rawley and directed by Debra Pralle.

The World Health Organization declared a “public health emergency of international concern” on February 1 over the Zika virus and the health problems that doctors fear it is causing. Zika virus is spread to people through mosquito bites. Of particular concern are reports of pregnant women giving birth to babies with birth defects and poor pregnancy outcomes as a result of contracting the virus.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued travel notices for people traveling to regions and certain countries where Zika virus transmission is ongoing.

• What is Zika virus and what do we know about it?
• Is there a vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat Zika?
• Why is contracting the Zika virus dangerous for pregnant women?
• Will a woman’s future pregnancies be at risk?
• Do we in the Pacific Northwest need to worry about Zika virus?

Join us for a discussion of the Zika virus, and its possible side effects, especially for pregnant women, with:
• Judy Penn, Professor (Microbiology)
• Hermien Watkins, Professor Emeritus (Nursing)

This week we’ll be discussing the stories: Star Ware and the American Imagination, The Only Lasting Truth, Outro.

Don’t know what Community Read is? Read on:
Each year a new book is selected for our Community Book Read. Together we share our impressions and ideas. Weekly analyses of the text are led by a variety of college volunteers, bringing with them their unique backgrounds, expertise and perspectives. This keeps the discussion fresh, lively and relevant.

This year’s book is Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements. Octavia’s Brood is a collection of social justice-themed science fiction stories that feature things like time travel, shape shifting, dystopian worlds, re-imaginings of “model minorities” and the possibilities of using visionary fiction to develop new ideas of future worlds. The works are inspired by the writings of Octavia Butler, an award-winning science fiction writer (Kindred, Parable of the Sower, and Lilith’s Brood) who lived in Lake Forest Park before her death in 2006.
