Download the document and follow the instructions on there. Any questions, just ask. This is due 10/23/08. If I am feeling generous, it might be all we do, aside from talking about the final project. We’ll see….

More job hunting info

I will also be writing a post on graduate school, since I know many of you are looking into that. KNOW where you want to apply to and go from there. Go directly to companies website and check out if they are hiring. Allow yourself to be slightly picky when searching and interviewing, don’t feel obligated to just take anything.

Below are tons of links to help you with this whole process. Also check out a website run by one of your peers, where she provides her resume and writing samples! Enjoy!

COM 475 homework

The essays you need to do can be downloaded HERE. Please do all 3 essays. Also read both sides (yes and no essays) to Issue 2 in your text. You only need 3 questions or comments total for the reading. Be prepared to talk on 9/16! Remember, seminar class means you do the talking, the debating, questioning each other, etc. We’re off to a decent start but I know we can do better, without me leading so much.

This post is also listed under the tab at the top of the page COM 475. Click on that will take you to a page that has a link to all the posts/homework/etc for your class.
