You probably haven't seen me much on here the past few days, I've been

super busy with midterms. Also as some of you know, it is my senior

year so I have begun the job hunt (even though graduation isn't until

May a lot of companies are already recruiting!)

Today was the career fair on campus and there was only one company I

was interested in--Macy's South. I went and met with the recruiters.

It went really well, at first they told me they were only… Continue

I didn't watch them, but I was all over this morning checking out the photos.

My personal favorite was Katherine Heigl in Zac Posen:

How amazing does she look?! It's hard to believe that she doesn't even have a stylist. Some of my other favorites:

America Ferrara in Monique Lhuillier

Edie Falco in Randi Rahm:…

The past few weeks have been super busy with school plus work. I got my resume almost finalized, I'm in the last revision stages. I also have mocked up some business cards and I am getting ready for the Career Fair next month!

I'm also trying to expand my network to meet as many people as I can in the geographical areas I'm interested in. I've narrowed my search down to two options--Atlanta, GA and New York City. If anyone has any contacts in these areas please let me know! I would… Continue

So last night I worked on sprucing up my resume (due for class today) and boy oh boy....I hadn't updated it since before I started working at S & K, and I did not realize how many additional skills I had acquired! I had trouble keeping it to just one page since I have a lot of experience (for someone my age, at least). Just got to see what the career counciler thinks of it now!

I've been talking to more people and trying to make more contacts....I've been doing a lot of research… Continue

I'm going to use this blog to track my progress on my job hunt....any hints, feedback, or contacts anyone would like to add would be greatly appreciated!

For the next month I am taking senior seminar so my focus will be on preparing myself for networking. Today I developed a personal business card and later this week I will be sprucing up my… Continue

Jessica - please update the image file for your profile. It currently appears as a red X because something is wrong with the file. It does not have to be an image of you, just something fashionable. Please make the update when you have a chance.

sorry for the delay in responding to you. I will send you a message by e-mail. I will use the subject line "Jessica / Apparel Search"

Jessica - do you enjoy shoes or writing about shoes? I am starting a site for shoes, and would like someone to help me post blogs, or get discussions moving along. Possibly, we can work out some sort of part time job thing... Unfotunately, I am not rich. But as a student, maybe a little extra spending money would help. Do you have interest in further discussing?

Well, if you had not sent the message to the department chair, the message would not have been sent out. Therefore, I owe you and your department chair a great deal of thanks. Really appreciate your help and I truly hope that you meet the proper connections to land a great job. If I can be of assistance in the future do not hesitate to ask. Just remind me that you are the one that spread the word at VCU... (now that I am meeting so many great people, it is hard to keep track..)
