Student Information

Networking Night at Manship is a great opportunity for students to mingle and get to know recruiters in the communications field, as well as search for internship and full-time job opportunities. Take advantage of this event as a means to expand your professional network!

This event is for Mass Comm and Pre-Mass Comm students only. Since the event will have a networking focus, not all organizations will be hiring. Since some organizations will be hiring, be sure to ask about open positions if you are in the job market. Use this event as an opportunity to learn more about the kinds of jobs available to students with mass communication backgrounds. This is the perfect opportunity to find out where your degree can take you, and how to get there.

If you are looking for a job, bring copies of your résumé to share with the organizations that are hiring. Professional attire is highly encouraged.

Light fare and refreshments will be served at the networking event.

Please note: You do not need to stay for the entire event and you may arrive after the scheduled start time. This is a come-and-go event.
