LinkedIn Networks

Many employers and internship providers recruit in part through LinkedIn. We invite you to join any networks of interest to you, where you can connect with employers, stay up to date on internship opportunities, Career Center events, industry news, and company campus visits.

Graduate School Advising

In the Communication Department Office, you can find handouts available to help you think about how to choose, apply to, and fund graduate education. We hold an annual advising meeting on graduate school in spring quarter.
