Careers in Minutes

What can I do with a degree in communication studies? We have some answers. “Careers in Minutes” will explore careers in the field of communication focusing on careers associated with majors such as public relations, electronic media, general communication, interpersonal communication, journalism and more. Alumni from the communication studies program who work in these fields will discuss their careers and answer questions about their jobs, a typical day, employment outlook, etc. The first part of the event will have a speed dating format during which students can visit with alumni who are working in positions of interest to the student. This segment will take place in the University Room, lower level of the Maucker Union. The second portion will be a panel of alumni (in person and through video conferencing) that will expand on their positions outside of the Midwest and answer questions as well. The panel will be held in the Auditorium, Lang Hall.
