Your Future in the New World of Communications.
Zacharis, John C.
The information provided in this book is intended to help people in the communications fields plan their careers more carefully. While careers in medicine or law have goals and educational steps that are quite clear, communications is a field that can be found in business, in the media, in government, and in education. Following the description of communications as an occupation that cuts across all career areas, the author discusses those qualities which are necessary to succeed in communications. The steps for obtaining an education are also examined, and suggestions are included for getting some basic experience. This book contains helpful information on finding job opportunities, including lists of government documents listing career opportunities. Advice is given on how to write an inquiry letter, prepare a resume, and succeed in an interview. The appendices include information on colleges and universities offering communications curricula, and professional organizations that graduates may wish to join (RB)
