About the Careers in Communication Fair:

The Careers in Communication Fair gives students from all majors interested in a career in journalism or communications the opportunity to meet with participating companies for potential internships and jobs.

During the fair, students and alumni can meet with employers 1-on-1 to build their network and learn about opportunities or attend group info sessions/chats to learn more about the companies attending. Before the fair, attendees can also apply for open positions and schedule interviews with employers.

This event is open to UF Students and Alumni only. For further questions, contact our Career Events staff at (352) 273-2331 or CCCCareerFairs@ufsa.ufl.edu.
