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 speed advice sessions that help our underg raduates gain insight into the variety of professions and diverse career paths chosen by our Communication alumni. These sessions give alumni and students opportunities to meet in small groups, seek career advice and explore future opportunities as interns or employees.

Our alumni 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.
