The School of Communications held its 6th Annual Media MashUP on Thursday, April 6th. Close to 150 students made their way up to the Rocky Top Student Center in torrential spring rain to take advantage of the twelve MashUP program pieces.

New this year, professional Bryte Photography headshots for that uber-catching LinkedIn profile and Aced-My-Interview professionals Skyping students through the pressure of interviewing for jobs. Also a MashUP addition this year, a chat session with members of the School’s Alumni Advisory Board who held their semi-annual meeting at day’s end. Wrapping up the Media MashUP program was the networking career fair with three waves of would-be QUINN’terns and soon-to-be Bobcat graduates rushing in to meet and greet representatives from more than a dozen businesses and organizations.
