The BizComm interns greeted Owen Rouse, a partner in the commercial real estate firm of Manekin, LLC, during their class meeting on Tuesday, April 7. The brother of BizComm department chair Chip Rouse, as well as a member of Stevenson's President's Advisory Council, Rouse is responsible for identifying equity capital and sourcing new business opportunities at Manekin. He offered some tips to the interns to make networking easier, helping them see the possibilities of growing from good to better to best.

With such heavy reliance on their mobile technologies, the students need to learn to develop stronger interpersonal skills to serve them in face-to-face networking events. The guest speaker provided them with methods of working a room with politeness and charm.



Senior Alaina Peterson's love of travel led her to an internship at The Travel Boutique, a full-service travel agency located in historic Savage Mill. Under the mentorship of Yvette Shaqir, the president of sales and industry relations (in the photo on the right), Alaina is learning how travel agencies plan itineraries, book travel, work with various resorts' business development managers, and respond to challenges. A career in travel is definitely in Alaina's future!
