Communication Studies Program Hosts Fall Internship Fair

On October 31, UHD's Communication Studies Program hosted its fall Internship Fair.

Students enrolled in COMM 3306: Business and Professional Communication and COMM 4098: Field Experience are required to attend the fair to improve their engagement with Houston businesses. The fair included internships with Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Communication team, the Office of Homeland Security, UHD iRadio, and the National Diversity Council.

"As a college student I have felt lost and nervous on how and where you can take that first step towards your career," said graduating senior Beatrize Tapia. "The internship fair was the perfect experience to help ease my anxiety by offering these opportunities with my fellow Gators who are going through the same experience.” 

Communication Studies hosts the fair every spring and fall to provide internship opportunities every semester.
