On Tuesday, February 26, 2013, three members from PCG Digital Marketing’s team traveled to Monmouth University to participate in the annual Communication Career Day. Christine Rochelle (Vice President of Operations), Lisa Salabritas (Content Manager) and Mike Forgie (Creative Specialist and Monmouth University Alumna) were all thrilled to be invited back to participate in this important day for another year.
During the afternoon, Christine was one of five professionals to participate in the “Careers in Marketing” panel. She joined members from various marketing agencies and positions to give students a first hand look into the world of marketing. Christine was able to tell students how she was able to climb the ladder within the company and offered suggestions for student’s entry in the corporate world. Personal branding was a key message from all to students and all panel participants offered great advice for students in attendance.
Once the panel was complete, companies and students had a chance to network with one another to build relationships and discover possible internship and career opportunities. Christine, Lisa and Mike were able to talk to students about expand skill sets, career paths, the corporate environment and more.
“It’s great to see how engaged and involved students are,” said Lisa, who attended the Communication Career Day for the second year. “Both inside and outside of the classroom, they are learning the skills that are going to help them land jobs after graduation.”
Mike, a graduate of Monmouth University, enjoyed the opportunity to return to the school to represent a company during the Communication Career Day.
“Seeing students in the same position I was in while attending Monmouth was an evoking experience,” explained Mike. “They were all so tuned in to what the panelists had to say and that eagerness is crucial after graduation.”
PCG Digital Marketing is honored to have been invited back to Monmouth University’s Communication Career Day and looks forward to attending the fair in 2014.
