General Meeting – Monday, October 17, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

Amy Seiberta from Minnetronix came and talked to us.

Her advice was:

  • find something you can stay interested in for several years
  • find a company culture that you like and ask about programs for new hires
  • people in industry are helpful – you don’t need to know everything

General Meeting – Monday, October 03, 2016 @ 8:10 pm

Speaker for student entrepreneurship came in to talk to us.

Bill Adamowski from ISU StartUp factory.

Started out as software engineer in industry but wasn’t satisfied.  Entrepreneurship was the right path for him.  Talked about how there isn’t as much risk involved as commonly portrayed.  Gave several reasons to become an entrepreneur, but ultimately it boiled down to more philosophical reasons.  The key is wanting to contribute to society in a meaningful way, being willing to work hard, and enjoying the challenging work that you do.  Figure out what makes you happy and what you want to do with your time.
