Fairfield alumni will return to campus on Feb. 19 to share professional insight and career advice with current students.

These four alumni reflect great success stories and will share their respective journeys... while highlighting how their academic studies in the liberal arts contributed in myriad ways to their career paths.

— Katherine Schwab, PhD, director of the School of Communication, Arts, and Media

The College of Arts and Sciences' School of Communication, Arts, and Media will host its third annual alumni career panel on Wednesday, February 19, 2020, from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Barone Campus Center Dogwood Room. The event’s four recent alumni will return to campus to field questions from current students, discuss their personal transitions from college to career, and address the many ways that a liberal arts education helped them achieve their professional goals.

From a digital content manager for a professional sports team to an internal business affairs manager for an international talent agency, this year’s four featured panelists represent a wide range of careers and bring together alumni and students from each of the School of Communication, Arts, and Media’s four departments: Communication, English, Modern Languages and Literatures, and Visual and Performing Arts. The panelists include John Primavera ‘05, internal business affairs manager for Columbia Artists; Maggie Andrew ‘14, social media editor for Yahoo; Amanda Hajjar ’17, digital content manager for the New York Knicks; and Alexandra Ambrosio ‘19, account coordinator for the Camuto Group.

“These four alumni reflect great success stories and will share their respective journeys with our students and faculty while highlighting how their academic studies in the liberal arts contributed in myriad ways to their career paths,” said Katherine Schwab, PhD, director of the School of Communication, Arts, and Media and professor of art history and visual culture. “We are finding that students stress about the magic major that will open the gates to some imagined career, but instead, our alumni have been fairly consistent in discussing the incredible combination of internships, work experiences, networking, and core curriculum studies, that along with their major, helped them achieve career success.”
