Sports Day!

Sports Day!

Since a big part of PSWC (Pacific Southwest Conference) is all the different sports competitions, it is important we train so we can beat the other schools! Especially after our first place finish in Ultimate Frisbee last year, we are hoping to win even more sports this year.  Every month we have a sports day, which is where we all meet up and practice sports together. It is a fun way to hangout and get some exercise!

For this month's sports day we focused on volleyball, since we are hopeful it will make a reappearance at PSWC this year! We learned that the key to volleyball is communication and that it is very important to call the ball and say "MINE!" Our volleyball team now looks ready to go!

Career Series: Resume Workshop

Career Series: Resume Workshop

Yesterday members from YMF (The Younger Members Forum) and MLAB (Metropolitan Los Angeles Branch) stopped by for a Resume Workshop! Since they are working professionals in the Los Angeles area, they are full of great advice and feedback to get our resumes ready for the USC Viterbi Career Fair this upcoming week!

Our members were asked to send in their resume a week before so that the members from YMF and MLAB could look them over beforehand. That way at the workshop we received great feedback right away, and a copy of our resume with comments on it to take home.

Thanks to YMF and MLAB for their help in making this event so successful!
