More than 100 students gathered for the 2014 New York City Career Connections event over winter break to visit with a few well-known employers and network with more than 30 Oswego alumni who live and work in the metro-New York area.
Selected students visited one of four employers: Madison Square Garden, a sports, music and entertainment venue; Kellen Communications, a national public relations agency, hosted by Joan Reinhart Cear ’80 and Stephanie Meyering ’08; KPMG, a global network of professional audit and tax firms, hosted by Bob Garrett ’83; and FOX, an American commercial broadcast television network, hosted by Bill Shine ’85.
The trip culminated with a networking fair for students to learn how to develop professional contacts and explore different careers in the area. Fox Networks Group Talent Acquisition Manager Emanuel Adjekum ’05 delivered the keynote presentation at the fair. NYC Career Connections is sponsored by the Oswego Alumni Association, with support from The Fund for Oswego.
