Communications Careers

Communications covers a multitude of professions, but the core of all of them is the same – getting messages across to people clearly and effectively.

Communications careers are amongst the most interesting and stimulating careers you could choose. You could find yourself working in journalism, public relations, advertising, marketing, film and television, or corporate communications – all require good writers, thinkers and talkers to inform and convince.
