Alumni Share Career Advice
Seven Northern Essex Community College alumni spoke to current NECC students participating in the internship program about their careers while offering career advice.
Some two dozen students from the computer science, business, and journalism/communication programs were treated to an end-of-semester luncheon and received certificates of completion of the internship program from their program coordinators.
Following the luncheon, the panelists, all of whom attended NECC, shared their academic and career journeys, discussed challenges they had to overcome and offered advice on how to advance their careers.
Alumni included: Ellen Small Davis, ’79, a writer at NECC; Matt Tascon, ’14, an IT analyst at Windham Professionals in Salem, NH,; Bel Andrickson, ’14, a general manager at Lawrence Braces, in Lawrence; Brittany Anzalone, ’09, a speech therapist assistant in the Haverhill Public Schools; Gladys Martinez, ’10, a customer support specialist at NxStage Medical in Lawrence; Tim Field, ’14, a software developer at Muzzy Lane Software in Newburyport; and Reanne Malesky, ’10, an investor services representative at Putnam Investments in Andover.
NECC offers an internship program to students wishing to gain experience and insight into a career path. The internship program at NECC offers flexibility and opportunity.
