Considering a major or minor in health communication?
Health communication offers a wide variety of career options…sometimes they can be overwhelming. The good news is the health industry continues to be the leader in new jobs. So, we’ve planned a lunchtime (FREE) informational session to highlight two local professionals and careers they’ve carved out that focus on communication and health care. Learn about their jobs and possible internship opportunities.
WHAT: Learn about jobs and internships in the health industry from two local professionals.
WHEN: Tuesday, April 6 at 12:30, Craig Hall 321.
WHY: Free lunch and free advice about careers in health care.
Sponsored by the COM department in support of the health communication program.
Life after MSU
Are you ready? What does life has in store for you after leaving MSU? No one knows, but you can be prepared to handle just about anything…I highly recommend attending any of the workshops at the Life After MSU event. Remember, MSU is here to help!
The Life After Missouri State Workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 7th, 2010, from 3:00-8:00 p.m. in Glass Hall. The goal of the event is to prepare students for the transition to life after college. Organized as a mini professional conference with several workshop options, the event will bring together campus and community resources into one forum. Although the workshop is targeted towards upperclassmen, the content is relevant and beneficial for the any student. Students are encouraged to attend the entire event, but they can come and go as they please according to which workshops they are interested in attending. Looks like no RSVP is required, but encouraged so you can be entered into a prize drawing
Topics will include: resume building, personal finance, navigating the “human resources process,” interview skills, how to be an effective and successful alumnus, work/life balance, graduate school search, job search, and professionalism in the workplace.
Date: Wednesday, April 7, 2010
Time: 3:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
Location: Glass Hall

Could a MENTOR help you decide on a career?
You thought March was all about brackets and basketball…how about Mentors in April? I wanted to make you aware of an event the Career Center is hosting on April 20th – Mentor Match. The Career Center will host 15 professionals coming the afternoon of April 20 in the Plaster Student Union to speak about their professions & to answer questions you may have for them.
This is a great opportunity for you to learn about different professions, especially if you are not sure what you want to do or if you want to learn more about what professionals do on the job. Local professionals in Public Relations, Health Care, and Management (HR) will be in attendance.
Check out the sessions online now (use link to the right). You can sign up for a Mentor Match session online, up for a maximum of 3 sessions (1 pm, 2 pm & 3 pm).
