Communications job fairs scheduled on, off campus

February 15, 2010

A pair of communications-specific job fairs will provide opportunities for Penn State students to meet with prospective employers on campus and in New York City in March and April, respectively.

The first of the two College of Communications events, JobExpo.Comm(unications), brings businesses from a range of communications fields to the University Park campus and allows students and alumni to meet with prospective employers. In the past 10 years, more than 3,900 students and 480 businesses have attended the event.

This year, the event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 19, in Alumni Hall of the HUB-Robeson Center, on Penn State's University Park campus.

A few weeks later, students from all four departments in the college -- advertising/public relations, film-video and media studies, journalism and telecommunications -- travel to New York City for "Success in the City," a job fair in the heart of the Big Apple.

From noon to 5 p.m. Friday, April 9, students will meet with recruiters in a variety of communications fields at the Time Warner Center.

Along with providing opportunities for students, the job fairs expose prospective employers to an energetic and talented pool of potential employees. Both events are free for recruiters.

Information and registration forms may be found at http://comm.psu.edu/current/careers online. Additional information also may be obtained by calling the Office of Internships and Career Placement in the College of Communications at 814-863-4674.

  • More than 3,900 students and 480 businesses have attended JobExpo.Comm in the past decade.
