Career Possibilities and Alternatives in Communication.
O'Connell, Sandra E.
This discussion asserts that growth in the field of communication is inevitable--because of technical advances in many areas, interdependence between organizations, news legislation, and the trend toward disclosure of information. As a result of this growth, careers for those who are competent in communication techniques are becoming more available. The fulfillment of the following criteria will help in the search for such jobs: experience in a broad range of communication skills, especially writing; knowledge of communication theory; ability to bridge gaps between communication theory and practical application; and understanding of the business environment. Advice for obtaining these skills and suggestions for investigating possibilities in business, industry, and government are given. (KS)
