At, our mission is to help students and professionals in the field of communication to advance their careers, stay apprised of developments in their discipline, and learn more about other areas of professional communication. To achieve this mission, we created our Professional Interview Series, featuring candid and detailed insights from communication professionals in such areas as advertising, public relations, strategic and organizational communication, and more. This interview series complements our Scholarly Interview Series which is designed to introduce students to communication research. Our professional interviewees have crafted unique and successful careers for themselves, and offer students advice on topics ranging from the latest technological advancements in media production and management, to how to overcome gender discrimination and promote diversity in the workplace.
