Just wondering if any of you guys in the chicago land area could help me out in finding a job. I live in Elgin which is near schamburg. I have a degree in communication studies which basically leaves me open to alot of different area's. If anyone would be able to help me out or have any contacts that could help me out that would be great. Just shoot me a pm or throw it on the board here. Thanks for the time and hope to hear from some people

I have to ask. What exactly is "Communication Studies"? What types of jobs would someone with this degree look for? Sorry to be a pain, but to be helpful, I need more info. I work at GE Healthcare, and we have a facility in Barrington. I really have no idea if they have any openings since I do not pay that much attention normally, but if you can give me some direction, I can certainly take a look at internal postings. Alternatively, you could go out to http://www.gecareers.com/GECAREERS/jsp/us/index.jsp and if you see something that might fit, feel free to PM me and I can try to help you understand the alphabet soup that is in a typical GE posting. We like to use acronyms for everything. I sometimes wonder how they ever find external candidates with all the TLA (three letter acronyms ) in a typical position description.

Basically communication studies is a degree in which you are taught how to work in teams, lead teams, you learn different leadership techniques, you also learn how to deal with people. We had specialized classes in things such as organizational communication, interpersonal communication, conflict managment communication. Things of that nature. The degree overall teaches somone how to communicate at a higher level then most people while at the same time being able to judge other peoples characteristics and adapt acordingly.

What is your work experience and background?

At what level are you expecting to start at?

Do you have a specific targeted industry that you are focusing on or just searching at this point?

I work in Waukesha in Regulatory Affairs, dealing with FDA and other government agencies since all medical equipment is regulated.

If he is a Quality auditor, I may know him. We have internal auditors who are part of the Quality dept and basically audit the different parts of the business to ensure they are following all the government requirements for design and manufacturing.

Search www.careerbuilder.com (http://www.careerbuilder.com)

What you describe sounds more like a human resource specialist, although I don't know the degree.
