The TCOM alumni mentor program launched

The TCOM Department launched the alumni mentor program. Each TCOM major can apply to receive mentor support from one of our TCOM alumni advisory board or standing committee members. Students can use the mentor for one or more of the following functions:
• Provide opportunities to shadow them on the job
• Help establish links for internship opportunities
• Provide feedback on work produced in TCOM classes (please do not do so until they have received a grade for the assignment)
• Establish regular phone or email conversations to talk about the progress you are making and offer suggestions
• Provide suggestions for an effective resume and portfolio
• Offer feedback on resume and portfolio
• Conduct mock interviews prior to internship interviews
• Invite students to professional meetings (such as NAB and NAPTE) and other networking functions
• Provide contact and job lead information
• Be a “sounding board” for students as they establish their career goals

The program will begin January 1, 2009.
