Communication Career Day
Each spring the Communication Alumni Council helps the Department sponsor Communication Career Day. On this day, dozens of alumni return to campus to participate in panel sessions that help our undergraduates gain insight into the variety of professions and diverse career paths chosen by our Communication alumni. Panel sessions conclude with a question and answer period to facilitate students-alumni interaction. Networking time before, after and between sessions give alumni and students opportunities to meet one-on-one, seek career advice and explore future opportunities as interns or employees.
Our alumni panelists represent a wide array of communication careers, including media and entertainment, sales and marketing, advertising, public relations, public affairs management, law, education, training and development, human resource management, accounting and financial management, and social media. They hold positions in a variety of profit and non-profit organizations that include high tech companies, talent agencies, media organizations, public relations firms, governmental organizations, financial companies, pharmaceuticals, health care organizations, and marketing firms.
