GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Nearly 50 employers are expected to interview students in the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications on Monday.

The twice-yearly event gives undergraduate and graduate students, as well as alumni from all majors in the college, a chance to meet with employers for possible jobs and internships. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Reitz Student Union Grand Ballroom.

To view participating employers and learn more about the positions they are seeking to fill, go to the Knight Division’s Interviewing Day website. The Gainesville Sun, Porter Novelli, United Way, and Turner Broadcasting, Inc. are among the registered organizations.

“We are very pleased to have a wide range of employers attending Interviewing Day. I hope students will take advantage of this excellent networking opportunity to enhance their careers,” said Knight Division Director Charles Harris.

The deadline to sign up for prescheduled interviews has closed, but students are invited to register online and visit the open-interview tables. Those who come are encouraged to dress professionally, bring portfolios and resume copies, and be ready to network.

“I always tell people that my favorite part of the UF College of Journalism and Communications is Interviewing Day, and I really do mean it,” said Kate Feldman, journalism senior. “Not many students (or even jobseekers) can say they have an organization that brings employers to them. This semester will be my forth time participating in Interviewing Day and I’ve come out of every one with at least one internship offer. This semester, I’m looking for a job for after graduation, and the Knight Division makes that hunt so much easier.”
