Sponsored by the University’s Communication Department and organized by the local chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America, this annual event is a great opportunity for students and employers to network. Companies from the public relations, marketing, advertising, media production and journalism sectors are being sought. Previous years’ participants have included Focused Image, Edelman DC, MediaDC, Washington Wizards, Northern Virginia Magazine, and many more great companies.

Both employers and students interested in participating are invited to contact the Department of Communication for more information. Students are not required to pre-register for the event, but must dress professionally – and are encouraged to bring several copies of their resumes or business cards. In addition to researching companies prior to the career fair, students are advised to consult in advance with University Career Services for advice on basic networking and interviewing skills, and guidance in tailoring resumes and cover letters to specific job postings. Walk-in appointments with Career Services for the marketing and public relations industry are Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
