Careers In Communication 2017

CMNSU presents Careers in Communication (CIC). Networking in the communication industry is crucial but, as undergrads, it can be hard to know how, when and where to start! At CIC, you will have the opportunity to meet and connect with people currently working in all different fields of the industry. This is an evening to discover new possibilities or further fall in love with what you want to do with your degree! This year’s CIC will take place on Thursday March 23, 2016 at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel.

Event Details:

CIC will consist of two main components. First is a set of three round table rotations between 1 Industry Professional and a few CMNS peers. You will get more information on how to select your round table IPs closer to the date. After, there will be an open networking session where you can continue conversations with your 3 IPs, connect with other IPs you didn’t have a table with, or network with fellow CMNS peers and the CMNSU team. Hors d’ouvres and refreshments will be provided.
