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!

Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus' Advanced Event Planning class welcomed three BizComm alums back as guests of the class that meets Wednesday evenings. The three alums -- Brittany Koehler, Chelsea Moog, and LynnAaron Nichols (seated left to right) -- are all involved in event planning careers in some form, and they talked with the students about what their careers involved. With a tremendous alumni network, the Business Communication department depends on our alums to help guide the current students' understanding of possible career paths.

Congratulations to BizComm alum Julia Tucker, who has let us know that she will be singing on the Original Broadway Cast Recording for "Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812," starring Josh Groban. We are thrilled for her at this opportunity, and await word on how the recording sessions go. (Photo from Julia Tucker)

BizComm alum Amanda Weaver (in the photo, on the right, during her internship at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School) writes to us:

"I am from the winter graduating Business Communication class of '08. I currently am working for a company called Entertainment Consulting International. We are a Baltimore-based consulting firm for venues across the county such as Power Plant Live, Xfinity Live, Power and Light District in Kansas City, and we are rapidly growing. In the next year we are opening huge venues in Norfolk Va, Atlanta, and later down the road Detroit. I was stopped in my tracks walking past our marketing team today and they asked if I had any connections with colleges. They are looking for someone to fill an internship position (paid) as soon as possible.  I also feel it will have great potential for a full-time opportunity since we are growing so rapidly.  We are located in the heart of the Inner Harbor right above Phillips. Below is the link to our website. ECI has been an amazing place for me; I am coming up on my 4-year anniversary and I can see myself staying here for many more years. The company has such great culture and has the most amazing team!"

How exciting to be engaged in such a thriving workplace. Thanks for checking in, Amanda!
