"I left my undergrad years with so many transferable skills. The small class sizes made it easier to learn, ask questions and be more hands-on. I wasn’t nervous leaving my undergrad experience, I felt confident and ready to take the next step into the working world and I have many Point Park professors to thank for that."
Highlight your professional experiences since you graduated from Point Park University.
Since graduating from Point Park University, I moved to Denver, Colo., where I’ve been an SEO account manager, digital marketing coordinator, social media specialist and now a social media manager.
What are your responsibilities as a social media manager at Angi?
As the social media manager, it’s my job to develop and drive creative social media strategies that build brand awareness, increase meaningful engagements and foster community across all Angi channels. Some of my tasks include content creation, copywriting, responding to comments and direct messages, monitoring for any potential crisis and reporting on important growth metrics to our important stakeholders.
In what ways did your undergraduate experience prepare you for your career?
I left my undergrad years with so many transferable skills. The small class sizes made it easier to learn, ask questions and be more hands-on. I wasn’t nervous leaving my undergrad experience, I felt confident and ready to take the next step into the working world and I have many Point Park professors to thank for that.
What are your favorite college memories?
When I think back to my favorite memories during college, they all have something in common — they involved Campus Activities Board (CAB)! I was highly involved with CAB. Not only was I working on the board for multiple years but I thoroughly enjoyed attending the events we worked hard to plan and market. A few of my favorite events include the Halloween dance, Late Night Bingo and the Sunset Luau.
What advice do you have for prospective School of Communication students?
There are so many resources available to you, so use them! That means making time to speak to your advisor regularly, utilizing the career center, talking and asking questions to your extremely knowledgeable and helpful professors. Make the most of your time — it goes fast!
