Alumni Career Event

Department of Communication's Alumni Career Event

The Communication Department's annual alumni career event will take place from 4 to 6:30 p.m. on Wed., April 3 in the Cape Cod Lounge in the Student Union.  Nine COMM alums at various stages of their careers will be returning to campus that day to meet with current COMM students and offer career advice and support.

The event will take the form of a "speed date," in which students will be able to meet face-to-face with as many alums as they wish. It will be a major career networking opportunity for Communication undergrads.
