Career Information

Strong communication skills are prerequisites to positions in virtually any professional area. Public relations, marketing, sales, advertising, radio and television, management in organizational settings, personnel, and civil and social agencies are traditional avenues for communication majors. However, many new job categories are being created in other areas such as the information technology and health industries that require a strong communication background. Many communication majors are also finding exciting positions in the public sector in government and politics.

The Career Services websites allows students access to many useful tools and resources that are helpful to all students including undecided new students, upperclassmen looking for internships and/or part-time jobs, graduating seniors and alumni looking for full-time jobs or graduate school advisement. The site offers students access to a database of almost 600 career mentors and professionals in a variety of fields who have volunteered to help our students with career advice, networking help, etc. It also contains a calendar with dates on UB Career Services Job Fairs.
