Unlike a traditional career fair, the Communications & Marketing Careers Information Exchange is literally a roundtable event. During the event, students move to a new table every 20 minutes to learn about a new employer or industry segment of their choice.

Who should attend?

This career exploration event is open to ALL students, graduate and undergrad. While it is ideal for undergrads exploring career options or seeking internships or full-time jobs, it is also ideal for graduate students in GSLIS, CAS, and other programs interested in making networking connections and leaning more about opportunities in the communications and marketing fields.

The Communications & Marketing Careers Information Exchange is produced annually by the six-college consortium known as the College Career Centers of Boston (CCCOB), all with programs in communications and marketing: BC, BU, Emerson, Emmanuel, Simmons, and Suffolk. Typically between 100-200 students attend from the six colleges.

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 as representatives of their employers, including Alice Stein '00 and Tarra Marino '12 of KHJ Brand Activation (Alice is also the current President of the Greater Boston chapter of the AMA), Elin Boman '13 of Mullen, and others.
