Business Communication alum Mark Salerno (at left in his internship photograph) reached out to the department recently in a lengthy email. We excerpt some of it here:
Happy New Year! Can you believe its been three years since I graduated? I catch myself thinking, "If only my biggest concern today was getting to Chip's 8 a.m. class! Ahh, those were the good ole days." I'm sure it's all a blur for you. Honestly, everyday I reference something I learned from the program, constantly thanking of you all in my head! I've been working for my parents' company, Integrated Control Corporation, since I graduated. It has been an interesting transition working for them. We design and manufacture electronics for the food service industry, mostly pertaining to quality and food safety. I've been taking over most of the customers and being the face of the sales team....
And we recently heard as well from Inna Kolomiytsev, who is the director of Marketing for Niles, Barton, and Wilmer, LLP (she's shown here far left with some students at a "Lunch Lessons" event):
Happy New Year to you, and I hope this finds you well! I am reaching out to my alma mater to share a possible internship opportunity for a student who would be interested in working with a local non-profit Gunpowder Valley Conservancy, a unique land preservation and environmental education organization that serves the Baltimore County, Harford County and Carroll County region covering a major watershed that is a part of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. I have become recently involved as an advisor in assisting GVC’s Executive Director in rewriting content for the website which is in the process of a design revamp. We are in need of fresh photography, infographics to add to side-bars, and assistance with generally maintaining the content once it goes live.
How great it is to hear from our alums who are thriving, happy, and successful!
