Interview about Ocean City Oddities

Brandon Seidl (Stevenson Business Communication 2006), SU's current senior director of web and digital marketing, is preparing for the publication of his latest book, "Ocean City Oddities," through an interview with Delmarva Life. You can watch the interview with Brandon and his co-author, Kristin Helf, and learn more about the history of the beach town on the Eastern Shore. This is his second book, following another Ocean City, Maryland look, "Trimper's Rides," co-authored with Monica Thrash. Congratulations to Brandon for turning his passion and his writing into capturing days gone by on the boardwalk and the beach.


Thank you note in envelopeA personal, handwritten "thank you" note can be the difference between getting the internship or job -- and being left without one. Students in either of the communication majors need to understand the importance of follow-up gratitude expressed immediately and personally.

A short, handwritten note sets you apart from your competition. It shows that you took the time to express your gratitude, look for an address, find a stamp, and send off a note. You demonstrate your thoughtfulness and appreciation to someone who took the time to interview, chat with, or mentor you. Being professional, in fact, includes showing your gratitude.

Other good advice includes making sure you send the note immediately, no more than a day or two after the meeting or exchange. In order to make it easier on yourself, purchase some correspondence cards on which you can write three simple sentences of thanks. In fact, your department has a stock of these cards and envelopes free to anyone who would like to send one!

Remember that every professional interaction you have with someone is critical -- and a personal thank you note becomes even more essential in this world of email and cybercommunication.

Desh set up from BBJThe Baltimore Business Journal featured a "career and workplace" piece on May 11, 2020, that highlighted the home workplaces of three of local public relations firm Profiles rockstars -- who just happen to be Stevenson University Business Communication alumni!

Bridget Forney, Allison Winer, and Grace Clark (left to right in the photo) were featured in the article that examines what it takes to make a home workplace successful. Photographs, including the one above from the article, and practical advice from the three PR gurus were among the article's highlights.

Three alums at Profiles - Bridget, Alli, Grace"Two account executives and the vice president of the company shared photos of their home offices this week because, like countless Marylanders, they too are now working from their living rooms, kitchens and makeshift office spaces as social distancing guidelines remain in effect due to Covid-19," wrote Digital Editor Carley Milligan.

Congratulations, ladies!
