This year, we decided to try something new. We thought it would be cool to interact with the students in a different way, a way that would help us stand out from the blinding mass of free pens and key chains and really engage some of our future employees.
Howard hosts the Communications Career Fair with students from Pennsylvania to Texas (and mostly everywhere in between) participating in interviews and workshop sessions. The organizations that recruit at this event are as diverse as the students. The Waggener Edstrom booth stood alongside of ABC, Fox Group (including MySpace), Target, MTV, NBA and nearly every large public relations agency.
Many thanks to Torod Neptune who continues to support WE’s efforts at HU by participating in the panel discussion on how to get an internship and build a career in public relations. As usual, Mr. Neptune had a line of students lining up to speak with him after the panel to glean his words of wisdom.
For the last two years, Monica Lins (now an honorary recruiter) and Nikole held down the WE booth. They had the chance to speak with several students regarding their career aspirations, types of employers they’re looking for and their thoughts on the changing media landscape.
