Careers in Advertising & Communications Event

This was an informational session for any and all communications majors on how to approach finding an internship in an effective way. Firstly we discussed how to format your resumé. This was the most intense and longest portion of the seminar. We discussed aspects of how to make your resume STAND OUT when compared to hundreds of others on the employers desk. We talked about NOT adding flashy colors or bells and whistles, but instead to make the content flashy and to the point. Next we discussed how to dress appropriately for a job interview–dress as the position you are applying for but do not over dress. And lastly in the interview BE YOURSELF! Do not be timid or robotic, just be you.
