Business Communication alum Michelle Larkin (class of 2014) checked in from her job as a member of the Business Development team at Walt Disney World in Orlando. Her job included finding and pursuing new sponsors for the Walt Disney Company there. Michelle longed for a writing-focused career, similar to a previous job she had held at the Orlando resort, shown in the photo.
"I've been at my happiest when I'm being paid to write, so it only made sense ...when I found the National Mango Board on LinkedIn, ... I interviewed two weeks ago, and was offered the job last week," wrote Michelle. As their marketing specialist, she will write and manage social media and blog content, while supporting their new marketing strategy for 2018.
The department of Business Communication teaches our students to follow their dreams and pursue their passion -- so congratulations, Michelle, for doing just that! It's hard to leave a career behind -- especially at Walt Disney World -- but saying hello to something new often opens wonderful and surprising doors.
