Jason M. Turcotte, Cal Poly Pomona

Undergraduate Research Assistant

This project strives to qualify the accuracy of media poll reports and piques my interests in journalism and academia. I collected qualitative data from academic journals to write part of the report. My team and I presented our final product at the Midwest Political Science Association's annual conference in Chicago this April.

Marketing Assistant

I created and presented keynote presentations about our organization to hundreds of incoming freshmen. My duties also included managing survey distribution and inventory of ASI merchandise.

The Poly Post

Staff Writer

When I signed up to write for the student-run newspaper, I didn't know how much the experience would influence the direction of my career path. Conducting interviews, working with my editors, and writing stories illuminated my passion for interacting with and learning from different people.

Ayres Hotels of Southern California

Guest Service Agent

I met thousands of people while at Ayres, and each interaction taught me more about the type of person I want to be. While picking up a slew of pragmatic skills, such as how to work in teams, under pressure, and with limited resources, I also learned that it is vastly important to be kind and respectful to every person whose path crosses with mine.

California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

Bachelor of Science, Communication

I found my place at CPP in the communication department. My peers and advisors encouraged me to evolve my outlook on education and challenge myself. I studied public relations, marketing management, journalism, and philosophy. The result is a lens that considers the world in terms of meaningful interactions, community building, and effective communication.
