Fairfield University’s Communication, Journalism and newly named Film/Television and Media Arts programs will be hosting a fun and educational event for students. The Fairfield Media Career Nights will take place on Thursday, October 24th and will feature Fairfield U. alums currently working in media. In a presentation style event, our alums will share their stories of work after college, how they’ve gotten to their successful positions, and any advice they have for students. After the presentations, students will have a chance to chat with the guests to gain even more valuable insight.
The all-star lineup of alumni presenters includes Becky Krause, an associate producer at MTV Networks, Augusta Mellon, a publicist working for Buzzfeed.com, Stephanie Hill, a communications and digital specialist at GE Capital, Kristen Prestano, senior account executive and Kate Dillon, account supervisor at Prosek Partners, Ben Doody, the group managing editor for both The New Haven Register and Digital First Media, and Meghan Doody, who has worked on digital media for Brides Magazine and The Oprah Magazine.
Communication students should not miss out on such a relevant, informative event. As we learn more about the discipline of Communication, it is apparent just how important knowledge of new media is, not just for Communication-related positions, but for all careers. The Fairfield Media Career Nights presentation will take place in the first-floor meeting space of the Barone Campus Center and will begin at 7:30 pm.
