Career FairThe Texas State School of Journalism and Mass Communication will once again partner with the Texas Association of Broadcasters for the Mass Communication Career Fair 12:30-3:30 p.m. March 5 in the LBJ Student Center Ballroom.

Charles Kaufman, senior lecturer, said the TAB organizes career fairs with its college campus members several times a year throughout the state.

Kaufman said TAB representatives approached the school and the university’s Career Services about having such an event on campus several years ago because of its close proximity to Austin and San Antonio.

“Our site has presented advantages that other locales don’t offer, so we are fortunate to be a choice site for (TAB) events,” said Kaufman, adding that other mass communication vendors, besides broadcast, have been included in the career fair over time to cater to all of the school’s sequences.


Forty-five employers are scheduled to be in attendance at this year’s career fair, including Community Impact Newspaper, KVUE-TV and Target Corporation. They will be hiring for part-time, full-time and internship positions.

Employer bios are available at Jobs4Cats.

Kaufman said students who wish to attend the career fair should learn about employers prior to the event, dress professionally and prepare a resume.

Career Services offers in-person and online resume assistance.
