Be Connected: Day of Professional Development 2014

By Marianne Brigola, Comm Career Advisor

Kudos to the iMedia ’14 students, iMedia alumni, faculty and employers who joined us last Friday for this year’s Day of Professional Development, iMedia’s annual spring event that connects current iMedia students with employers and alumni.

Shout out to Nikki Schell (iMedia '14) for the fantastic program design!

Each year the event looks a little different, and each year iMedia students benefit from some great advice from our panel participants and alumni.

This year’s panel included:

Conor Britain, iMedia ’10, Interactive Designer at RED Interactive

Angela Connor, Group Director, Senior Vice-President at Capstrat

Tracy Lathan, Account Strategist at Clairemont Communications

Amanda Sparks, Recruiter at Response Mine Interactive

Panelist gave some great advice on everything from trends in the industry, what interactive media technology their organization uses, and advice on the job search + interviewing process.

Also, thanks to all our iMedia alums who came back to Elon to share their advice with students at the networking lunch:

Juanita Wrenn, ’13

Alan Buck ’13

Kelsey Sullivan ’13

Lindsey Huston Cook ’12

 

 

At the lunch, current iMedia students were able to mingle with the employers and alumni to ask more questions about the industry and navigating the job search.

This event wouldn’t be possible without the fabulous Maggie Mullikin planning the event–coordinating everything from panelists to alumni guests to catering! Thanks Maggie!
