Getting ready for Monster Jam at Royal Farms ArenaLooks like Business Communication major Isabella Maxey has been busy at her internship with Edie Brown & Associates, a premier public relations firm in Baltimore.

Prior to the closure of large-venue sites, Isa was busy at Baltimore's Royal Farms Arena preparing for the annual Monster Jam! Here she takes a photo with the Arena's public relations and events staff, as well as with her mentor, Edie Brown. Isa bundled up is at far right, and Edie is third from the left.

In demand skillsAccording to Linked In, at left are the top in-demand skills for the workplace. Notice that nearly all of them are directly applicable to the curriculum in the Business Communication and Comm Studies majors!

But according to a July article in Techwell by Owen Gotimer, we must stop referring to these skills as "soft." These soft skills really aren’t so soft after all. Why not?

1. "Soft skills are hard to learn.

2. Soft skills require continuous improvement.

3. Soft skills are transferable. 

4. Soft skills will distinguish man from machine.

5. Soft skills are the focal point of agile."

These are important human skills that are demanded of the successful employee - so let's stop calling them "soft."

Head shot of Amy BelchatovskiBusiness Communication graduate Amy Sharfman Belchatovski ('15, M '17), who works for Optavia, has let us know about a new paid internship opportunity with the company's Events Team this winter. With lots of great events coming up, the company needs some intern drive and enthusiasm. Amy is certain that the internship will provide a terrific experience for anyone looking to go into the events industry. Here's the link for more information. (Photo from LinkedIn)

Panelists of interns

Business Communication interns Yina Dong (left) and Andrew Nagel (right) participated in an internship panel on Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, organized by the School of Design's internship director, Sonya Lawyer. The students on the panel (there were more than the photo shows) spoke about their own internships to an audience of current interns, faculty, employers, and students looking for a position. The two communication interns spoke about how they found their site, and what they learned while they were there. The event was held in the Rockland banquet room and was followed by the traditional poster session.
