It's a HEATWAVE.
Cold-seeking Colleagues,
I hope everyone is staying cool in these hot and humid days of summer... I know I've crashed more than my fair share of apartment complex pools. One way of keeping your temperature down is to enjoy the AC in the Nasher Museum. Summer Days, Nasher Nights has Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday diversions for you this week.

Also this week are two chances to improve your future career search, don't miss out.

Keep it fresh, keep it cool!
Fumiko Chino
