Alumni Speaker Panel Looks at Careers in Communications

Students interested in careers in the communications and marketing industries should attend SUNY Cortland’s 2013-14 Alumni Speaker Series event on Monday, Sept. 30.

The panel discussion, titled “Careers in Communication Studies: Marketing, Event Planning and So Much More,” begins at 7 p.m. in Corey Union Exhibition Lounge. It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Panelists include Maureen Ryan Baringer ’80, owner of Baringer and Associates Event Planning Services, Charles T. Beeler ’84, public relations director for Eric Mower & Associates, and Lisa M. Sturdevant '92, creative services department for WETM TV.

“Students interested in a career in communications should come prepared to ask our alums how they scored their first job, their paths from Cortland to where they are today and other questions related to their careers,” said Erin Boylan, associate director of alumni affairs. “This is a great opportunity to get advice directly from professionals.”

The discussion, the first of six in the series, is sponsored by the Alumni Affairs Office and Career Services. For more information, visit the Career Services website or call them at 607-753-4715.
