ST. THOMAS AQUINAS COLLEGE HOSTS EVENT TO
EDUCATE STUDENTS ON HOW TO LAUNCH A CAREER IN SOCIAL MEDIA
Sparkill, NY – On April 10 at 7 pm in the Romano Student Center, The Communication Arts Department and the Advanced Public Relations class of St. Thomas Aquinas College will host a once in a lifetime event that will inform students on the many up and coming career opportunities in social media. Social Media: The Untapped Job Market will consist of a panel of speakers who are professionals, students, and faculty with an unparalleled expertise in this field.
In the wake of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc., people continue to find themselves constantly glued to their screens throughout the day to display their lives and interests as well as keep in contact with friends, family, coworkers. Furthermore, more and more businesses are finding themselves on social media for branding and advertising. Millennials need to realize that they have an advantage: they are already skilled with these tools and can channel their passion for social media towards their profession.
“I am glad I get the opportunity to give my fellow students insight and advice on their future careers. Social media is such a big trend for organizations and being that I am a social media intern, I can help guide my classmates on what employers are looking for,” said Gabriella Delgado, a senior at St. Thomas Aquinas College and a panel speaker for the event.
Dr. John Durney, Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs and Professor of Communications, will moderate the event. Speakers include Rosemarie Monaco – President of Group M Inc. and adjunct professor at STAC, Kelly L. Campbell – President of Liqui-Site Designs, Inc., Gabriella Delgado – social media intern at Pyramid Management Group, Toni Wisniewski – Trade Marketing & Regional Community Manager for Metro PCS, and Karelisa Faulkner – Social Media Marketing Specialist at Liqui-Site Designs, Inc.
Students who are interested in learning about the future of the job market, becoming successful professionals, and learning about the future of communication are encouraged to attend. As if this wasn’t enough, the event is followed by a networking reception as well as free food and free raffle prizes!
