Jana Ross ’11 says that “[BC] felt like home the minute I stepped on campus, and I loved it more every year.”  She decided to major in communication because she enjoyed writing and research and felt that it offered a broad foundation to enter the media, public relations, or marketing industries.

Jana is currently an account executive at Weber Shandwick, a global public relations firm.  She notes that enrolling in Senior Internship Seminar and interning at Cone Communications was beneficial – “I felt prepared to enter the industry and excited for all the doors Communications opened for me…I'd recommend students get internship experience wherever they can as early as they can. It's the best way to learn what you do and do not like about the field and offers a huge advantage as you're applying for jobs.”
