The Dallas Morning News, TracyLocke, and D Magazine were just a few of the notable companies in attendance at the SMU Communications Disciplines Job Fair Monday, March 23 in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom East.

The event gave students majoring in journalism, advertising, and public relations the chance to network with over 30 employers, and speak with professionals about internships and full-time positions in their field.

Students like senior advertising major Justin Gibson attended the career fair to gain a further understanding of the companies he could potentially work for after graduation.

“The career fair was a viable chance for me to test the waters with specific employers in anticipation for graduating and job hunting,” Gibson said.

Seniors graduating in May seeking full-time employment to freshmen deciding on a major will benefit from attending the SMU Communications Disciplines Job Fair because of the one-on-one interaction they will have with credible companies and recruiters.

Students received firsthand information at the communications career fair about companies in the field they are pursuing that will help them have a better understanding of the types of positions, work, and expectations that are to come when they enter the work world.

“This event has value for the senior who is looking for a full-time opportunity to the first year student who is in the stage of career exploration and wants to learn how about different career paths or how to prepare for the next 3 years,” Assistant Director of Employer Relations at the Hegi Family Career Development Center Alicia Love said.
