The primary purpose of the Connecting Students & Alumni in the Windy City event is to provide an opportunity for current students to gain career and professional development information and to begin expanding their network by interacting with alumni. At this year’s event, more than 90 students were able to attend different panels with nearly 50 College of Media alumni.

A keynote address from Michelle Smyth '96 JOURN, started the event.Michelle Smyth

Panel discussions ranged in topic from internship searching and strategic communication to how to think outside of the box. Students were then able to attend the networking event directly following the day’s program, where they were able to connect with more than 50 alumni in different fields of the media industry.

Connecting Students & Alumni in the Windy City is organized by Media Career Services. If you are interested in participating in this or other Media Career Services events in the future, please contact Jessica Hogue via email at jrhogue@illinois.edu.
