Exceeding post-grad expectations

Our graduates go on to do pretty incredible things. Ranging all over the United States, various graduates link their success to the preparation from our department. Our graduates are competitive in the job market, well prepared once they're hired, and exceed expectations repeatedly. We constantly have organizations, companies and businesses begging for UWEC communication and journalism students.

The connections I made with professors and UW-Eau Claire staff helped me transition into the real world. My job post-grad is the Marketing Assistant at Mall of America. I work alongside our SVP of Business Development & Marketing on her day-to-day and long-term projects. I am now planning events for the 2018 Super Bowl, which has been a dream of mine since it was announced Minnesota will host it.
