May BizComm grad Rachel Guzman (on the right in the photo) was thrilled to let us know that she just accepted a job as the Development Coordinator at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Maryland Chapter. Rachel completed one of her internships at the MS Society under the mentorship of former BizComm Katie Amos (who had herself interned there before going full time, and is shown on the left in the photo). What a triumph, Rachel, and best of luck in the new job.
Business Communication News
BizComm grad Alex Zeidler sent us a quick "checking-in" note. He writes: "We are about three weeks away from the Grand Opening of Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, and these past three months have probably been the most stressful but most exciting three months of my life. Juggling multiple projects and dealing with a deadline that isn't going away is one tough task, but BizComm taught me how to deal with these situations.
BizComm alum Jess Dixon Bieber (2009) checked in with the news that she is soon to start a new job with the Fallston Group, a full-service public relations, marketing, strategic planning and brand management comany that specializes in "building, strengthening and defending reputations," according to the website. Jess' past experience with Jigsaw Marketing provided her with strong interpersonal skills, particularly in building and strengthening relationships. While at Stevenson, she was editor of The Villager and captain of Stevenson's NCAA women's lacrosse team, among other things.
Congratulations to Business Communication 2014 grad Travis Douglas, who stopped by the office to let us know he has accepted a job as an IT recruiter with Vision Technology Services, a company that "provides IT talent and project management services to help world-class companies lead," according to the website. Travis' strong interpersonal skills, coupled with his leadership abilities, helped him start along this career path. Here he is shown on the right during his internship next to his mentor, Jeff Dudley, at Corrigan Sports.
