Junior Communications major Patrick Rossetti is well on his way to a successful life and career. With a minor in writing he hopes to land a career in journalism, upon his graduation in the Spring of 2012.
For Patrick, Career Services has been a great help. He advises anyone who is looking for excellent help and a great experience to come and visit. "They are so willing to point you in the right direction and answer any questions you may have. Everyone has a positive attitude and is always cheering you on to achieve your best. I would have to say, without the assistance of career services, I would still be very confused and trying to right a resume."
With help from Career Services, along with Patrick's own positive and persistent attitude, Patrick was able to land an internship with Journal Inquirer as a Reporting Intern. At Journal Inquirer, Patrick covers and writes stories for the journal as well as adheres to the requests of the editors; merely a stepping stone in his climb to the top.
Patrick's advice to anyone looking for an internship or job is to, "put yourself out there. Take any chance that comes to you, no matter how small the opportunity is, paid or unpaid. I found in the career world of today, what you have done and who you know matters, never underestimate the power of a family member, friend, even a professional acquaintance, you never know who they know and might even hook you up with a great opportunity."
Congratulations Patrick! Fantastic job!
