College of Communications Alumni Chapter Comm Week 2012 - Resume Review

At this year's Comm Week hosted by a task force of Communications students, the College of Communications Alumni Chapter hosted a Resume Review in coordination with the Career Center's Communications Internship Fair.  Dozens of students attended the fair anxious to meet prospective internship sites.  Many of them came prepared with their resumes and had them reviewed by one of eight professional Communications alumni who volunteered their time and expertise to the students.  The room was full of great energy and the Alumni volunteers were all very impressed with the quality of work that the students presented.  We look forward to working with the next Comm Week task force next year, as it always helps keep the College of Communications Chapter focused on our mission of giving back to the current students.

Correct answers guaranteed Tuffy bucks which were later redeemed for cool Cal State Fullerton prizes. A la New York, pizza pie and cheesecake were served while attendees relaxed to cool urban beats from DJ Julian while cocktails like Cosmopolitans, Appletinis and Manhattans were sipped in the Skyline Lounge. Titan fans also had the special opportunity to take photos with New York Tuffy! The evening also provided an opportunity for alumnus Tony Ortega ’87, ’89 , Editor-in-Chief of The Village Voice to share pearls of wisdom about how he made it in the newspaper industry.
