    What do you bring to the table besides the degree? What are your goals? What do you want to achieve, why did you choose that major? E.g. if you aim for journalism, were you a reporter on your school paper, have you published articles with reputable magazines, newspapers, etc, on a freelance basis? Or do you aim for....? What? What additional qualifications do you have to show prospective employers that you are a better bet for hiring than any of the other hordes of applicants?

    it depends on your actual skills and your specific interest in communications. Communications can be a broad and somewhat vague term.  What, exactly, to you know about communications?  What, specifically, drew you to that major?  What is it that you want to do?

    People with communications majors might be qualified for any number of jobs from working in a PR or Marketing agency to similar roles inside a company, to sales jobs, to working at a radio or TV station. Communications majors may fit into the new roles of social media or digital marketing.  They may have the brains to become a writer for a tech company to create case studies, blogs, and website content.  

    Communications majors might also be a good fit for roles in account management or customer success.

    Communications tends to be a broad major.  A student is introduced to marketing, advertising, journalism, social media, information technology, television, and a few other subjects.  If you have already graduated, you want to look in those fields.  If you have not yet started college, choosing a specific career first and a major second is the correct sequence.  For example, if you want to be in advertising, a business administration major with a concentration in marketing would be better than communications.
