Communication Career Night a Complete Success

Submitted by Gisela Gil-Egui on March 25, 2008

Spring 2008 – It was standing-room only at the annual Careers in Communication event on March 25th at the Kelley Center on campus. Returning to Fairfield to speak to Communication majors included Sonia Baghdady ’96, anchor on WTNH TV; Terrance McCarron ’99, Senior VP North American Sales, Greenfield Online; Melody Serafino ’05, Senior Account Executive, Rosen Group PR; Meg Malinowski ’06, Page Supervisor, “Late Show with David Letterman”; and Erica Penta ’07, Contract Supervisor, ESPN.

A networking social was followed by a panel presentation where graduates of the Communication program reminded students that communication theory matters in the workplace, and that hard work in the classroom pays off later on. Drs. Sallyanne Ryan and David Gudelunas from the Department of Communication and Sue Quinlivan from Career Planning organized the event.
