Seniors Rachel Dolle (left) and Brooke Clariday (right) are enjoying their internship with Grow & Fortify, a company that works with the agricultural and food production businesses and industries in Maryland.  They have been working with clients, developing social media platforms, helping to plan events, and, in general, learning a great deal about wineries, breweries, and distilleries. Their mentor, marketing coordinator Callie Pfeiffer (center), has also given them publication pieces to write for trade magazines. Both students are very busy but admit they love what they are doing.

December alum Savannah (Lawrence) Tagget wrote a wonderful message to the department on the occasion of accepting a full-time position with Pivot Communication.

"After working part time for a month, they asked me to come on full time. They were impressed with my writing skills and ability to listen to what a client wants and deliver it the first time. If it weren't for all the AP style tests and practice using AP style in writing classes, my writing wouldn't shine -- thank you for teaching me such a valuable skill in the writing world. Professor Verni helped me discover my writing voice, too, which is why my boss has told me that he 'likes how I approach topics.'

Some of my job duties involve writing newsletters and blog posts, interviewing individuals for articles, managing clients' social media pages, and distributing event and news releases to press. Every day I see how skills I learned both at Stevenson and at my internships apply to my new job. I'm working with senior living, criminal justice and legal clients -- I love the diversity in topics. Yesterday I wrote a blog post on preliminary injunctions for a legal client, and I was shocked at how interesting it was to research and write about!

I would encourage the current interns to soak up all they can this semester. Without my internships, the learning curve for this job would be difficult to master. Also, one of the only reasons I was able to secure this job while still living back in Maryland was because of my experience. I was also told that I was well-spoken and confident -- traits that the Business Communication program instilled in me ...
I'm truly astounded how apparent the transfer of skills from Stevenson is. "

Thank you, Savannah, for those encouraging words!

Business Communication alum Julia Tucker checked in recently to let us know she has accepted a full-time job offer as a Digital Media Coordinator for Mid-Atlantic Media in Owings Mills. Julia writes, "I am thrilled for this opportunity, and I look forward to all that it has to offer. I greatly appreciate the support and guidance ... given to me over the years." Congratulations, Julia -- what a great opportunity for you!
Senior Ke'ra Thomas' love of event planning led her to an internship with Vintage Ivy Events, an Owings Mills events planning and design company that has distinguished itself "with exquisite style, impeccable planning, and seamless execution." Under the mentorship of Tope Olanrewaju, Ke'ra has helped to design and execute events for the company. A desire for luxurious and unique presentations has propelled Ke'ra towards creative brainstorming with her site supervisor.

Senior Business Communication major Brendan Reynold's internship at the local National Public Radio affiliate, WYPR in Baltimore, has given him the chance to report on local news and post his articles to the WYPR website. Above is a shot of one of his articles, which can be read here. Congratulations, Brendan!
