Meet Our Staff
Joyce Rogers, Director COM Career Services
Joyce first came to the College of Communication in 1975 where she worked in the Mass Communication and Journalism Departments. In 1986 she started COM Career Services. She develops programs and services covering all aspects of career development. Additionally, Joyce provides career counseling for students and alumni, plans networking events, and instructs career seminars. She currently works with the COM Career Coordinator and a large student staff to provide on-campus recruiting, job and internship postings, resume services, networking programs, special events, and special opportunities.
“In many cases, finding a job in the communication field is like playing a game of musical chairs. Someone has your job right now and you need to be positioning yourself so when that person gets up you are there to fill the empty seat.”
