Monday, March 20, 2017 • 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location: College Avenue Student Center, MPR

Are you looking for a career in the worlds of communication, journalism, media, information technology or informatics?

These career paths can range from marketing, public relations, media production, sales and advertising to data analytics, website management, help desk consulting or app development. The School of Communication and Information (we say “sky”) invites you to join us at the SC&I WIDE CAREER EXPO. This event is open to all Rutgers New Brunswick students.

Employers from a wide range of industries are looking to network with you and discuss career paths, internships and job opportunities in their fields. Many of the participants will be alumni of Rutgers University and The School of Communication and Information. Join us and build new relationships while learning about potential career fields.

This year The School of Communication and Information is excited to be collaborating with Rutgers University Career Services and Rutgers University Alumni Relations to introduce a new program, “The Road to Communication and Media”. The SC&I WIDE CAREER EXPO will be one of the kick-off events to this new program that will connect students with alumni in their desired career field.

Information for Students and Alumni: • Current Students: No pre-registration required. Please remember to bring your RU ID card or have your RUID number available to expedite check-in. • RU-NB Alumni (graduating in 2011 or later AND you remember your RUID number): No pre-registration required.

Registration Information:
This program requires preregistration. To register:

  1. Login to your CareerKnight account
  2. Select "Events, Workshops & Contests" on the left menu bar
  3. Select "Workshops" in the secondary gray bar
  4. You can use the keyword search field to search through the various programs in the system to locate this event
  5. Only students who RSVP for information sessions are guaranteed seats. Others will be allowed into the room five minutes prior to the start time if space is available.

RSVP No-Show Policy:

Participants are considered "no-shows" when they fail to cancel their RSVPs through CareerKnight with sufficient notice (within 24 hours of the program). Failure to attend events for which students have submitted RSVPs will result in a suspension of all CareerKnight privileges, including On-Campus Interviews and job postings. In case of inclement weather, please check www.rutgers.edu to determine the University's operating status. We will follow all closings and delays.

Why we need a no-show/cancellation policy for events: Please note that when participants no-show for events that require an RSVP, it is unfair to potential participants who wanted to attend but couldn't due to a possible waitlist. In addition, for some events (not all) we have employers and organizers who participate and they are giving their time to assist RU students/alumni. Thus, having no-shows for RSVP events not only reflects negatively on you, but on Rutgers University as well. Moreover, such lapses of etiquette are generally not tolerated in business and civic settings.

Registration Information: Learn more and register by logging into your Rutgers Handshake account.

Sessions are ONLY open to Rutgers-New Brunswick students as well as RBS-Newark.
