Fall 2015 Communication Job & Internship Fair

The Fall 2015 Communication Job & Internship Fair will be held on Wednesday, October 14th, 2015 for 10AM to 3PM in the Darrell K. Royal Stadium, 8th Floor.  90 employers are expected to attend to meet, recruit, and interview communication students and alumni for job and internship opportunities. The Job & Internship Fairs also offer the opportunity to network with representatives from various employers.  The year CCS is featuring a Career Fair Event App! This app will allow students to communicate with employers during the event through a Status Feed, access jobs and company bios of the attending employers, and use an interactive booth map to locate employers and filter by the types of positions a student is looking for.
