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.
