Info Session: Graduate Programs for Communications Majors

By Kristina Lintz, Director of Chapter Development

This Wednesday, PRSSA is thrilled to host Rachel Peterson for an information session about graduate schools for communications majors and the best ways to present your resume for applications. Peterson, a Penn State alum, is a recruitment specialist for the Integrated Marketing Communications Online Graduate Program at the Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism at West Virginia University.

During the session, Peterson will discuss the Integrated Marketing Communications program, resume tips and ways to develop your resume, and other graduate school pointers, such as personal statements, letters of recommendation and ways to optimize your LinkedIn profile. All of these are tips that will not only prove useful in applying to graduate school, but also when applying for full-time jobs and internships.

Peterson will also discuss the best way to present yourself in the application process, as well as a few specific details she looks for in IMC program applicants, that can carry across to other graduate programs.

If you’d like to learn more about the program, you can visit their Facebook or Twitter.

Rachel Peterson’s informational session will be at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16 in 005 Ferguson. We hope to see you there!
