Oklahoma State had its very own communications networking expo this past Thursday. I think it went wonderfully and I can only hope the JB school will hostat least one or two a year. This expo was organized by two JB students. Not only did they successfully organize this event they did it despite the university’s negative endorsement. I never got the full story about why OSU did not want a “networking expo” taking place without their consent. Apparently some OSU officials felt the students would conduct themselves in a manner unbecoming. And let me just say, that yes as a PR senior actively seeking a job I would act horribly in front of potential employers, professors and my fellow students. (hint the sarcasm)
Anyways, I want to congratulate the two students who created this event that benefitedso many of us. I tried to make my way to all the tables. Every company representative that I spoke with was excited to be there and gave very helpful advice. I went to OSU’s career fair at the beginning of January and hardly found employers that were seeking public relations/marketing professionals. It was so awesome to be at this expo surrounded by representatives that were looking for communication specialists. I felt much more comfortable and eager to talk with people at the expo.
Last but certainly not least, I would like to brag on my fellow Journalism and Broadcasting peers on our excellent and stylish attire. I have always said it and Thursday was further proof that we our the best -dressed major at the university. 🙂
