Job Outlook Good for Communication Grads

The job market for communication graduates—including those from Buffalo State—is positive and remains largely unchanged from previous years, according to a national Survey of Journalism and Mass Communication graduates. Buffalo State is one of 83 partner schools in the survey, conducted annually by researchers at the University of Georgia.

The survey found that nearly all communication graduates who looked for jobs had at least one interview within six months after graduation. Nearly two-thirds had a full-time job in which they expressed greater satisfaction than did respondents in previous studies.

The annual study is sponsored by professional organizations including the American Society of Newspaper Editors, the National Association of Broadcasters, and the Society of Professional Journalists; by media chains including Gannett Newspapers and Hearst Corporation; and by academic organizations such as the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication and the Association of Schools of Journalism and Mass Communication.
