Lynn Rodriguez is Back

Call Of Da Wild received word that Lynn Rodriguez is back on campus as the Internal Auditor. THis is the same Lynn Rodriguez that sold TSU out while working in the General Counsel office.

It is rumored that Charlene Evans played a major role in re-hiring her old friend. Looks like TSU is going from BAD to WORSE in a matter of days.

They will never get it together at TSU. CODW if you been around as long as you say you know that TSU is just a big circle of shit. The state needs to just close the school. This is getting old.

This is why TSU is such a damn joke. This is why myself and other people who graudate from this piece of shit can;t find decent employment or compete with white students from white universities.

I seriously, seriously doubt TSU is the reason why YOU can't (not can;t)find a job. You may need to get someone to proofread or spellcheck your resume for any other grammatical errors.

People are always talking about white this...white that..... Take responsibility for your own failures because any white, black, or yellow person who claims to graduate (not graudate) should at least know how to spell the damn word.

Even if it was a typo, apparently your lack of attention to detail and negative attitude is the reason why YOU can't find a job. As a proud TSU Alum ALL DAY LONG who has no problem finding a job I'll try to give you a little advice for your next interview.

#1 Outer appearance, hair and breath should be neat.

#2 Great looking resume on resume paper (spell-checked by someone other than yourself.)

#3 Maintain eye contact. (Lack of usually is a sign of avoidance, submission and/or just being weak.)

#4 Read a book on getting the job of your dreams.

This may help you...... Good Luck! ;-)

P.S. TSU was a launching pad to teach you how to learn. It doesn't stop there sweetie!

GET A FREAKY CLUE GUYS...... take interest in how our white ancestors do it.... they do it well... and get FILTHY FUCKING rich before the wall tumble down.... (i.e. ENRON, WORLDCOM, and etc.) You all know that I am right....

I can attest to the TSU/job thing. And my resume was done by a proffessional recruiter, albeit from another field but my resume isn't the prob--it's the degree.

For the sake of anonymity, i'll just say that it is factual that the agency I have been trying to apply to for the past 2 months looks at TSU like it is a joke. It has nothing to do with race, as many black UT, SMU, U of H and St. Edwards students work there.

It also makes me laugh when I see people like Sylvester Turner always trying to put himself in TSU business when the fact of the matter is: TSU wasn't good enough for him...he went across the street to get a degree where it mattered. Next time you see Sylvester ask him how many black legislators have hired from TSU and TSU's tired ass law school? Youw ill be shocked to find out.

As a person who has done internships, graduated with honors and even been published I thoughT i would be able to compete with UT and SMU grads...I was sorely mistaken. Maybe I should lower my standards and go work for the county, the city or TSU-- they seem to be the only ones who use the degree for more than toilet tissue.

Maybe that's a sign to seek employment in other states or nearby smaller areas. It is hard to contemplate moving out of a particular comfort zone or state, but if a door doesn't open it's probably because God has something else in store for you.

No one asked for my advice, but we are in this together. Just pray and keep knocking and what's yours will be yours.

Moving out of state with your TSU degree is probably the way to go. Around Houston and Texas there is unfortunatley a very negative connotation (mostly undeserved in my opinion). I'm a '97 graduate who actully got hired by a Fortune 100 company in Houston, later transfered out of state with the same company, and found that my degree got more respect outside of Texas.

I would like to comment on each of the bloggers that stated how it is hard to find employment with a resume that has Texas Southern University on it. I graduated from Texas Southern University in 2000 and I was very proud and still am proud of my school and degree. If you cannot find a job, maybe you are not marketing yourself well enough. Do not blame it on Texas Southern University. You have to get out there and network with people who can put you in the position that you want to be. I have a network base that includes individuals from all types of universities (University of Texas, Texas A&M, Michigan, USC, Jackson State, Southern, Louisiana State, Howard, Spelman, Florida A&M, Texas Southern University, etc). As you can see, my network base includes prestigious white schools as well as prestigious black schools. As a result, I have connections all over. If you display a positive, professional, pleasant, and intelligent demeanor, you will go very far and get basically what you want. I have had no problem in finding a job or connections for business deals/investments. Yes, you will get turned down sometimes, not because you have Texas Southern University on your resume, but maybe because you just did not exhaust each of your connections within you network base (if you have one).

I would also like to say to anyone who feels as if Texas Southern University is an embarrassment; you do not know your history or could care less about knowing your history. Yes, Texas Southern University is going through some very bad issues at this time and there are some very bad individuals that are presently working there, but Texas Southern University is a historically black college, that was created so we could be educated, since (at that time) we could not attend white institutions of higher education.

I know it is sixty years later since Texas Southern University was established and we can attend white universities, but that is still no excuse for us to bash our precious jewel, which is Texas Southern University. I know people like Ruby Bridges, Alma Shippy, W.E.B. Dubois, and Booker T. Washington (just to name a few) would be very disappointed in us today, since each of them played a very, very, very significant role in the educational process of blacks. Each of these individuals worked so diligently to help create an environment that would allow us to be educated. I look at Texas Southern University and it does have a lot of conflict going on at this time. However, conflict has been in existence for centuries. Believe it or not, W.E.B. Dubois and Booker T. Washington feuded amongst themselves regarding education. In contrast to the conflict that is present at Texas Southern University, W.E.B. Dubois and Booker T. Washington disagreed on how blacks should be educated, not over how much money to line their pockets or how to stab each other in the back while the university suffers. I feel that each of us as African Americans should take some time out of our very important schedules and start to research, read, and digest our wonderful history. I truly believe if we would partake in that, we would start behaving in a manner that would reflect professionalism, leadership, respect, and morality. That is what our ancestors exhibit and it is a shame that we have detoured from what our ancestors left us.

I must say that what is taking place at Texas Southern University is not different than what is happening at other institutions (white), however, we receive more publicity and most of all harder judgment, especially from our own people. I am not embarrassed by the Texas Southern University name that is imprinted on my degree. I show my degree proudly and I wear my t-shirts loudly. This university laid the foundation for me to continue to educate myself (education is a never-ending process). Most importantly, I feel good about myself and in turn, I am able to present myself accordingly. As I stated before, I network with individuals from a variety of educational, financial, and professional backgrounds, and this is why I am successful. Texas Southern University only prepared me with the spark to get up and go compete within society.

Remember, "You're either part of the solution or part of the problem"-(Leroy) Eldridge Cleaver. The way I see it, you are part of the problem by perpetuating a negative image of Texas Southern University, regardless of what is going on there. Always uplift your school no mater what. If you cannot uplift your school and you have to add insult to injury, then maybe you need to take a long, long look in the mirror and evaluate yourself because it very obvious that the problem is not Texas Southern University, it is YOU.
