Elon’s School of Communications Careers Office, located in McEwen 109, is a branch of Elon’s main Career Center located in Moseley 140. The primary goal of the School of Communications Careers Office is to assist communications students with (1) self-assessment (exploring interests, abilities, values, and personality style), (2) exploration of academic majors (Journalism, Strategic Communications, Media Arts and Entertainment, Communication Science, Sport & Event Management) and career options, (3) career decision making, and (4) creating and executing an action plan to secure a job or admission into a graduate program.
The School of Communications career counselor can assist students with resumes and cover letters, portfolios, researching employers, interview skills, job searches, graduate program searches, networking and more.
