Comm Alums Return to Campus to Give Insight and Advice to Current Students

Don’t miss the 2018 Alumni Career Networking night in the Department of Communication! Whether you just arrived at college, or you’re starting to prepare your résumé, it’s always the right time to meet successful Comm alumni. Come to get ideas about possible career paths, how to make the leap from college to career, or to make just the right contact for learning about job opportunities in your chosen field.

Four alumni from a range of graduation years will present about their experiences in fields ranging from video production to concert photography, from PR to marketing, and from the healthcare field to librarianship in the digital age. Students will have a chance to talk with all of our alums in a comfortable small-group setting. Refreshments will be served.
