By Magnolia Salas, Communications and Marketing Coordinator
Hi everyone, welcome back! I’m Magnolia, the new Communications and Marketing Coordinator for Career Services and a proud recent Syracuse alumna (I just graduated this past May). It’s exciting to start this school year at SU as an employee, since I’ll be able to use my experiences as a student to make Career Services more relatable to you.
Before joining Career Services and moving back to ‘Cuse, I spent some time in NYC which is where I grew up. I loved the Big Apple so much that I became a tour guide for three summers during my time at SU. As a tour guide I was able to share my passion of NYC’s past, present and unique culture with visitors and locals. It was an amazing experience that helped me not only get to know NYC better (I’m full of random NYC facts – ask me about them anytime!) but it also made me world-known. I’m half-kidding. In addition to being a tour guide, I was the marketing assistant for local CNY company OhGoodyGoody, selling gift certificates to local artisan shops and restaurants. As you can tell from my experiences, communicating and marketing have always been passions of mine.
My role here at Career Services is to keep doing what I love – getting cool facts out to the masses! I’m here to ensure that students (along with faculty, staff and recruiters) know about the latest happenings in Career Services, in addition to all the cool events and workshops we host.
With that said, keep an eye out for the 2012-2013 Career Guides! Stop by Suite 235 in Schine to pick up your copy come September. You’ll also want to mark your calendars, prep your resumes, and dust off your suits for Career Week happening the first week of October. And keep checking in with us for more throughout the year – we always have something in the works.
As we prepare for the upcoming school year and all the events, the most important thing is that I hear from you! As I continue to expand our marketing efforts, I would love to hear your thoughts.
Here are some ways you can help:
- Let us know what kind of events you would like Career Services to host.
- What social media sites would you like Career Services to utilize?
- Offer ideas on how we can better connect with you or your student organization.
Ciao for now!
