Buckeye Section CEU Event—Make No Little Plans: Passport Film Series
February 6, 6:30–9:00 p.m.
The OCASLA Buckeye Section presents PASSPORT, a film series exploring built environments around the world and the legacies these leave behind. As an international figure, Daniel Burnham believed that an ideal city could be both beautiful and commercially efficient. He was an early advocate for parks and open space who understood their importance in fostering a deep sense of community. Although his urban plans are criticized for their monumentality and absence of social concerns such as better housing, they have an identifiable coherence.
Cost is free for OCASLA members and $5 for guests. Register here(https://ocasla.com/meet-reg1.php?id=98) today.
Uncovering Your Career (ASLA Oregon Blog Post)
If you’ve ever had to search for employment, you are familiar with the ritual of sending résumés to prospective employers. During this time it’s easy to feel that your résumé is just a small piece of information in an ocean of applications. Not only are résumés handed out, they are emailed, posted, and dissected by computer programs looking for keywords; now more than ever, the right words matter. We need to work so that our profession is one of those keywords being searched for by those who hire.
