The BIG Cheese

If you’re a Birmingham (Alabama) young communications pro, you should know about “A Graduate’s Guide to the Cheese.”  Courtesy American Advertising Federation Birmingham, AIGA and some very talented people from BIG Communication, soon-to-be or current graduates can participate in this awesome networking and career developement opportunity.  

The Facebook group says:

“The idea is to invite students from all over central Alabama to attend a panel discussion that will cover what to the do’s and don’ts of building a proper résumé and portfolio.”

This is is the second session and it will include a panel of media pros.  The panel includes: 

-Two from Southern Progress who manage internship program (Carlton Kemper and Meg Dedmon, University Relation Rep)
-One from NBC 13 (still confirming who)
-One from St. Vincent’s (Liz Moore, VP of marketing)
-One from Big (Ford Wiles, chief creative officer)

The panel will answer questions about what they look for when reviewing resumes, talk about the interview process and spend some one on one time with attendees reviewing resumes and portfolios.  

Here are the hard facts (copy and pasted straight from the Facebook event page):
