In my attempt to look for a job, I visited the Career Services office at Fordham today. Unfortunately they were little to no help. I was hoping to get into contact with some alumni from Fordham to network and possibly inquire about job openings in the New York area. Unfortunately the "database" they offered me was over four years old. They reccommended that I try their new social networking site called Fordham Circle. I set up an account and provided important information for my profile. However, when I attempted to upload my resume, it didn't work. Also, I tried searching for communication/media jobs in New York and THREE jobs/people showed up. I am almost positive there are more than three people/jobs in the New York area (!!!) I talked to one of the directors at the Career Services office about Fordham Circle and she informed me that I would not have full access to Fordham Circle until a few months after I graduate. Major fail Fordham. Major fail.
