To help prepare students for life after college, Katie Martoche hosts etiquette luncheons every semester. Students learn skills that can help them during job interviews, business meetings, and more. Here, students practiced etiquette for business lunches and dinners.
The Digital Media and Communication Department and the Career Center hosted the 2016 Comm Career Expo this week. The expo featured a keynote address by Hilbert alum Tom Wills ’12. Wills spoke about his experience in the film and TV industry. He regularly works on Saturday Night Live taped segments and also offered a Steadicam workshop.
The event was open to all high school, community college, and college students. It was a great opportunity for students to talk with businesses in the communication field about internship possibilities and how to break into the fields of film, TV, radio, marketing, public relations, journalism, and more.
Hilbert students had the opportunity to visit and tour the federal courthouse in downtown Buffalo on Friday, April 10, thanks to Wendy Edson, Chair of the Professional Studies Division, and Katie Martoche, Director of Career Development and Service Learning.
The group was surprised upon arriving and meeting with Gretchen Wylegala, Hilbert’s Board Chair and an Attorney for the Federal Government, who had arranged with Judge Jeremiah McCarthy, a Hilbert Board member, to meet the group along with four Hilbert grads who work in the court system. The group also met with court librarian Jay Deveau, who had been an adjunct at Hilbert for many years. It was a tremendous opportunity for students to hear from graduates about how their Hilbert education, internships, and connections helped them professionally.
