Taking place Friday, February 21 from 10am-1pm (UU Conference Room 220), the event will feature professionals from various Communication Studies-related backgrounds as keynote speakers to present about their careers and offer advice. This is also an opportunity for alumni, faculty, and professionals to network and discover new opportunities. 

The symposium will specifically cater to those interested in marketing, public relations, internal communications, nonprofit, and recruiting. Such careers include skills in written communication, coordination, social perceptiveness, spoken communication, active learning, organizational/small group communication, critical thinking, and fluency of ideas. Essentially, the day will revolve around the skill of communication.
