Some college students have an exact career path to follow. For others, their options are not as clear-cut or defined. At Saint Rose, we encourage students to participate in undergraduate research, internships, and networking opportunities to help them discover their next steps after graduation.

That’s why Dr. Shai Butler, vice president for student development, pulled together a great team to brainstorm and execute an event that was designed especially for Arts and Humanities majors. Emily Nicholson, assistant director of the Career Center, and Sharon Edwards-Grant, Huether School of Business professional development and career advisor, then teamed up to present “From College to Career: Arts and Humanities Industry Experts,” a panel discussion for our School of Arts & Humanities students and alumni this Tuesday, April 20 at 5 p.m. on Zoom.

In this panel discussion, students and alum will hear from industry experts about their professional journeys in their various career fields. From broadcast news and public affairs to community engagement and creative services, the panelists represent the breadth and depth of career opportunities available to our School of Arts & Humanities students.

The expert panelists include:

  •  Samantha Hesler: a reporter and web producer at WNYT NewsChannel 13.
  •  Kate Buzzard ’09: manager of promotions and creative services at WNYT NewsChannel 13 and arts & design expert.
  • Joseph Tovares: vice president and chief content and engagement officer at WHMT and expert producer, media consultant, management, documentary and studio production, digital media, and philanthropy expert.
  •  Andrew Mangini: senior director, public affairs practice leader at The Martin Group and public relations, public policy, and political science expert.
  • Salvatore Prizio: program manager, talent buyer, event producer at Proctors Collaborative, former director of programming at Massry Center for the Arts, and music business industry expert.
  • Christina Romeo ‘17: campaign manager, coalition builder, and community changemaker, and English & communications expert.
  • Jonathan (Richardson) Meagher-Zayas, MSW, MPA: nonprofit capacity building strategist, community engagement specialist, MACRO social worker & public policy analyst, and non-profit & public policy expert.
  • Michele Wyse: director of creative services at Digital X-Press, and past board president at Capital Region Advertising Federation & co-chair of Albany’s American Advertising Awards (ADDYs), and graphic design expert.
