Road to Communication and Media Kick-off Event

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: Student Activities Center, Raritan River Lounge

University Career Services is launching a new Road to Communication & Media (RTCM) student-alumni mentoring program.   Modeled after our successful Road to Wall Street program–where 96% of participants who graduated in 2015 obtained post-graduation employment success–this multi-year program is designed to help you and your peers explore career pathways within the field while connecting you with alumni mentors who can help you learn the tricks for breaking into the industry.

At the kick-off event, you will hear more about the program, earn points toward the competitive alumni-student mentoring program, and learn about the field from a panel of distinguished alumni.

Panelists include:

  • Alfred Edmond Jr. – Sr. Vice President and Executive Editor-at-Large, Black Enterprise
  • Jim Rhodes – Deputy County Administrator, Camden County, NJ
  • Calvin Schwartz – Writer and Producer, NJ Discover and Rock on Radio
  • Gloria Vanderham – Global Head of Social/Digital Media, Novartis Oncology

Recommended dress code is business casual and refreshments will be available.

Registration Information:
This program requires preregistration. To register:

  1. Login to your CareerKnight account
  2. Select "Events, Workshops & Contests" on the left menu bar
  3. Select "Workshops" in the secondary gray bar
  4. You can use the keyword search field to search through the various programs in the system to locate this event
  5. Only students who RSVP for information sessions are guaranteed seats. Others will be allowed into the room five minutes prior to the start time if space is available.

RSVP No-Show Policy:

Participants are considered "no-shows" when they fail to cancel their RSVPs through CareerKnight with sufficient notice (within 24 hours of the program). Failure to attend events for which students have submitted RSVPs will result in a suspension of all CareerKnight privileges, including On-Campus Interviews and job postings. In case of inclement weather, please check www.rutgers.edu to determine the University's operating status. We will follow all closings and delays.

Why we need a no-show/cancellation policy for events: Please note that when participants no-show for events that require an RSVP, it is unfair to potential participants who wanted to attend but couldn't due to a possible waitlist. In addition, for some events (not all) we have employers and organizers who participate and they are giving their time to assist RU students/alumni. Thus, having no-shows for RSVP events not only reflects negatively on you, but on Rutgers University as well. Moreover, such lapses of etiquette are generally not tolerated in business and civic settings.
