Essays are due February 22. Essays must be submitted through WorkLink; instructions for doing so can be found in the Document Library. The essay questions are different from last year, so be sure to get the questions for 2013. If you will need a one-week extension for your essay, you must request one before February 22 by emailing email@example.com or calling 802-440-4321 (x4321 on campus).
Evaluations from employers are due on February 22. We must receive an evaluation for every FWT job that you registered, even if you did not complete all of your hours there. All supervisors have been sent instructions for completing the evaluation through WorkLink. Please check with your supervisor before you leave your job to make sure that he/she has submitted this evaluation.
If you have worked unregistered supplemental hours (up to 70 maximum), be sure to keep track of your hours on a timesheet, which must be signed by you and a supervisor at the site. You must turn in this signed timesheet to the FWT/CDO no later than February 22 in order to have these hours counted.
The submission deadline is March 8. The submission form, as well as more details about the contest, is available in the Document Library. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite pictures during the week of March 11.
Evaluate Your FWT site
Instructions for evaluating your site are available in the Document Library of WorkLink. This information is very helpful to students who may be interested in working at a particular site in the future. The only way we can provide student reviews of sites is for you to let us know about the place where you worked.
We know that you do amazing things over FWT. Now is your chance to share these successes with the rest of the Bennington College community. In early March, we will be hosting a display of student work from FWT. This can be a poster, photos, video, samples of work you participated in, music, or artifacts. More information can be found in the Document Library of WorkLink.
The FWT and Career Development Office is receiving summer opportunities now! They are posted on WorkLink and many of them have early deadlines. Check them out and set up a search agent for yourself (instructions in the Document Library) to get updates on new opportunities that meet your needs and interests.
