For the first time in its nine year history, bidding for the Southampton College Career Center's Silent Auction will take place on the web.

Visit the auction online at and click on the 2003 Silent Auction icon for a listing of more than 140 items to be auctioned. The bidding process is simple: A bidder just names what he or she is willing to pay for any of the items offered. The highest bid wins.

Bidding for donated items will take place through August 15. Tickets to sports and entertainment events, dinners in local restaurants, gift certificates, jewelry, free memberships to local organizations and various services are among this year's items.

The Cooperative Education, Internship and Career Center serves both students and community members by providing job listings, occupational information, directories, periodicals, and interactive computerized career exploration programs used in the work world as well as placing students in college credit-bearing career experiences around the world.

Proceeds from last year's successful auction were used for student/staff computer hardware and software in the Southampton College Career Center's Bridgehampton National Bank Career Resource Room. Money raised from the auction also enables the Career Center to place students in unique internships and cooperative education opportunities.

To receive a catalog of auction listings call the Career Center at (631) 287-8274.
