Department Alumni on the Secrets of (Post-Graduation) Success
It was a full house in the Kelley Center on Monday night as six of our proudest alums returned to share their tips and thoughts on navigating life beyond the campus gates. Generously organized by Ms. Sue Quinlivan, associate director at the Career Planning Center, and Dr. Sallyanne Ryan and charmingly moderated by Dr. David Gudelunas, the panel offered advice on subjects ranging from internships and networking to the potentials and perils of professional life and the opportunities Fairfield provides.
The impressive group included: Ms. Keegan Vance Forte (’07), chief-of-staff for AOL Ventures; Ms. Kristin Genovese (’08), music coordinator for MTV’s News & Docs division; Ms. Jill McLaughlin (’09), global communications for M-A-C Cosmetics; Ms. Jenna Nolan (’10), graduate student in Fairfield’s M.A. program in Communication; Ms. Jennifer Gregory Pierce (’03), director of production for the History Channel’s On-Air Promotions; and Ms. Wanda Szarek (’11), associate project manager at Story Worldwide. Our thanks go out to these inspiring young women for sharing their time and experiences!
