      Workshops and Networking Events

      *****

      Dining with Professionals

      We know that employers want to see students in social situations to observe how they conduct themselves. The Dining with Professionals events give employers the opportunity to network with students and serve as table hosts. We have over 300 students partake in this event each semester. Promotion of your organization will occur prior to the event. In addition, your company name and logo will be featured on the tables your organization hosts at the event.

      Mock Interviews

      The most neglected part of the job search is also the most important: the interview. The best way for students to prepare for an interview is to practice! This is a great opportunity for employers to meet future graduates looking to enter the workforce. The goal of mock interviews is to help strengthen interviewing skills and provide feedback. Company representatives are needed to conduct interviews (in-person, Skype or telephone) for approximately 25 minutes. Roughly 800 students participate in this event a year.

      Communication Networking Social

      Come and meet our top notch Communication Studies students at an event designed just for you. Participate in this networking social and have the opportunity to meet each student personally.
