Media Career Night

Friday, March 29, 2019
3:00-7:00 p.m.
Gregory Hall and the Newman Center

A degree from the College of Media allows students to succeed in a wide range of career paths. At Media Career Night, students will hear from alumni and friends of the college who work across industries in a variety of careers.

The keynote speaker and panelists will share advice about:

  • thriving in the many fields where your skills are relevant and in demand
  • breaking into the job (and internship) market
  • the skills and experiences needed to get ahead and how to share them with potential employers through your resume, cover letter, portfolio, etc.

Panelists will also talk about their careers and backgrounds, as well as how they got where they are today.

This is an incredible opportunity to learn from—and network with—veterans in the field!

Dress for the event is business casual.

Student comments:

"I am so glad that something like this is offered by my college and I was very satisfied from what I learned at this event."

"It was such a great experience to hear from alumni because they were just like us at one point. It made me realize that I, too, can build a successful career with enough patience, diligence, and persistence."
