Career Opportunities

Job prospects for communication professionals are encouraging. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that jobs for advertising, marketing, promotions, public relations, and sales managers will increase 13% by 2018.

Johns Hopkins University helps professionals advance or switch their careers. Although many of our students are already working in communication, some are transitioning from another field. Regardless, the majority of our graduates claim that the master’s degree helps with getting a new position. Our alumni are managers, directors, vice-presidents, presidents, and so forth in various organizations, such as government agencies, associations, non-profits, and corporations. Moreover, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, people with master’s degrees earned an average weekly pay that was more than $200 higher than those with bachelor’s degrees did in 2009.

Students gain career advice. Students and alumni have access to our exclusive job opportunities listserv and Career Services Center. Career counselors help students develop a job search strategy, a resume, interviewing skills, and negotiation abilities.

Students build professional networks. Students get to know their instructors, who occupy high-level positions; learn about our faculty members. Furthermore, students and alumni form connections with each other in the classroom and through our LinkedIn group page, which is closed to students, alumni, and faculty.
