The department of communications and film and the LIU Post chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will host a resumé and interviewing workshop on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 12:30 p.m. Speakers from two media companies will help students strengthen their resumés and skills for internships and job interviews.
These speakers will give students first-hand accounts of what big companies look for in new hires. One of the speakers, Maryann Skinner, the assistant managing editor of Newsday, is in charge of hiring both interns and new employees for the newspaper.
“Having the opportunity to get first hand advice from the people who hire for these companies is a great opportunity for someone like myself who has only had one job,” Nick Matina, a broadcasting major, said. Ashley Damis, also a broadcasting major, agreed. “I always have problems with my resumé. I don’t know what to add in or leave out, so to have someone go step by step with me would be very helpful. It’s going be an interesting and informative event to go check out,” Damis said.
The workshop will be held in Humanities Hall, room 108, and is open to students of all years and majors. Lunch will be served.
