Calling all students!

If you've ever thought about an internship, job, or career in communications or marketing, you're in luck. 

Next week, for the first time in the history of the event, Simmons College will be hosting the College Career Centers of Boston (CCCOB) annual Communications & Marketing Careers Information Exchange. The event, produced by the six-college consortium of BC, BU, Emerson, Emmanuel, Simmons, and Suffolk, will be held on Wednesday, October 30, from 5:30-7:30 pm in the Linda K. Paresky Conference Center on the 3rd floor of the MCB. 

How it works

During this career exploration event, students move to a new table every 20 minutes to learn about a new employer or industry segment of their choice.

The event is open to ALL students. While it's ideal for juniors seeking internships and seniors looking for a full-time job post-graduation, it is also an outstanding career exploration event for first-years just starting out and sophomores deciding what to major in.  

As of now 20 top employers are scheduled to attend, representing advertising, public relations, TV and radio broadcasting, publishing, journalism, social media marketing, and more, including:

  • 451 Marketing
  • American Marketing Association
  • Constant Contact
  • Da Capo Lifelong Books
  • IABC (International Association of Business Communicators)
  • Jack Morton Worldwide
  • KHJ Brand Activation,
  • Mullen
  • NXT event, Inc.CCIE Poster-Oct-2013.jpg
  • Overdrive Interactive  
  • Pearson Education
  • Racepoint Group Inc.
  • Streetwise Media
  • The Fantastical
  • WBZ/CBS Radio News
  • WFXT-Fox 25
  • . . .and more!

Network with Simmons alums

We are especially excited this year as Simmons is hosting the event for the first time, so we are hoping for a HUGE turnout of Simmons students. Several Simmons alums will be returning to campus for the event as representatives of their employers, including one grad from the Class of 2013 who attended the Information Exchange last year, made contact with an agency rep at the event, was hired for a summer internship, and is now on staff with the agency full-time.

Will you be the next success story? The first step is to show up at the event on October 30 at 5:30 pm in Paresky. Dress: business casual - no jeans or sneakers (business formal also OK).

Learn more about this year's employer attendees by visting the Communications & Marketing Careers Information Exchange event page on the CEC Facebook page.

See you on the 30th!
