Career and Technical Education (CATE) - Communications
Pursuing a career in communications is not as easy as having a natural talent to speak. Communications requires a learned ability to put information effectively through good communications skills. That means having training to speak about service, sell a product through spoken and printed language, and maintain a solid relationship with investors and clients through effective business communications. On top of that, it’s valuable to build a competence to adjust language choice in order to relate to different kinds of people as the work demands. The modern business world works in various jargons, be it with business executives or digital creatives. A good communications person can withstand the ever-changing complexities of a technology-driven saturated market.
A career in communications may require a four-year degree. This study will help students learn to build awareness on how to communicate information to different kinds of audiences. Students will learn how to build resonance to a companies’ aim, and present products and services to consumers in the best and clearest ways.
A degree in communications often works alongside media studies and journalism. Sometimes, it is part of a subject of political science. A master’s degree in communications often focuses on a new field like digital marketing.
Graduates of communications have a wide array of career choices. They can land in human resources to help communicate to recruits, as well as, retain valued staff through relationship building. Some of the careers include business executive, human relations manager and public relations manager. There’s also a big need for communicators for a marketing or advertising executive, and especially media planners.
There are vast jobs for communications because the work cuts through all industries. One aspect communicators are maintaining to be very useful is with the customer and client-facing departments. Public relations and even speech writing for a public figure are just two of these works.
