Hire Big Ten Plus Consortium

The Hire Big Ten Plus Consortium offers three diversity events during the academic year which expose students from our institutions to a wide range of diverse career options. Students from across the midwest travel to Chicago for a full day of career exploration in the fields of Business, Law and Communications.

Students from Big Ten Universities, the University of Chicago, DePaul University and the University of Notre Dame travel to the Chicagoland area to participate in 2 site visits and 3 large scale networking events in Chicago’s vibrant professional district. The day begins with a corporate sponsored opening ceremony including a light breakfast and a guest speaker. Following the opening event students, in groups of 25-30, attend their first site visit. The entire group reconvenes for a corporate sponsored networking lunch. Students travel to another afternoon site visit and the day concludes with a closing reception, also corporate sponsored.

For more information about these events, please contact Stacey Pitts at spitts@uchicago.edu.

Diversity in Communications 2010

Diversity in Communications

Friday, April 9, 2010

Chicago, IL

The Diversity in Communications event assists students interested in pursing a career in advertising, journalism and/or public relations.

This year’s Diversity in Communications event will take place on Friday,
April 9, 2010. The entire event is from 8am-1pm. Depending on your organization’s involvement with the program, you will have a group of students for a designated period of time, either 9:30am-10:30am and/or 11:15am-12:15pm. There is also an opportunity for organizations to sponsor the Diversity in Communications networking lunch from 1:00pm-2:00pm.

Who participates in Diversity in Communications?
Ethnically diverse students, LGBTQ students, and first-generation college students are just some of the students who take advantage of this innovative program. Because the term “diversity” is defined in many different ways, we encourage students who
self-identify as being diverse to apply. All participants have an interest in the communications industry and are looking to pursue internships, professional work or graduate school in this field.
