Who is ready for COM STUDIES DAY?!!!?! Well if you are, here are a few tips to navigate the event. First and foremost, it is on Friday, March 24th. There are ten panelists that will have a discussion about their careers in the field at 10 AM. But don’t you worry, because if you miss it or have class during that time, they are having another discussion at 2 PM. After each discussion, there will be a 1 hour networking session that you will be able to walk around and talk to the panelists and maybe some other students that are looking to go into the same field that you are. Also during the day, there is a COM Studies Day Fashion Show that highlights appropriate attire to wear to either interviews or even jobs once you get one. The fashion show will have all different types of outfits ranging from business casual to business professional. During the fashion show, there will be a skit that was recorded by some COM studies majors that highlights the importance of networking and interviewing for jobs.
Now you are probably thinking that this is fantastic and all, but what are some other reasons that I should go to COM Studies Day? Well, it is great to go to because if you are unsure of what you would like to do when you graduate, the panelists that come to talk are from all different aspects of the major. Listening to what their job is like could help you figure out what you would like to do. It could also make you realize that you like some other concentration that you have never been involved in. This is also an event for everyone, you do not have to be an upperclassmen and you don’t even have to be in the major to attend. So stop by Leutze Hall next Friday and be ready to beCOMe inspired!
