Career Opportunities

There is nothing more important to a brand than telling a story. A great product will carry you only so far if you don’t market it properly, so those who excel at communicating will have marketable skills. Public relations positions are often similar to their marketing counterparts, but a communications degree can also open up opportunities in human resources. Plus, media companies need great storytellers, especially within their digital media departments.
