The variety of programs in the College of Communication prepares our students to thrive in many different professions. See what our alumni want to share about what they learned at DePaul, how they’ve progressed through their careers and their advice for current students.
"Explore paths that interest you! Don't feel pressure to enroll in classes or take internships that you think will look good on a resume but aren't of interest to you. Pursue the opportunities that you would enjoy most."
"Your path doesn't need to look like your peers. It's so easy to compare yourself to others, but it's important to trust that you are on the right journey for you."
"My willingness to step outside my comfort zone and try something new led me to where I am now. If you step outside of your comfort zone, you will be amazed at the lessons you learn!"
"Networking is not always easy for people, so try to challenge yourself to reach out to these professionals even if it feels awkward or weird to you - remember they were once in the job hunt like you were too."
"My advice to current students is, don’t be afraid to be yourself or network, and don’t be afraid to enroll in a class that might be out of your comfort zone. I took a broadcast class as an elective and never imagined it would change the trajectory of my path."
