I found the job very exciting. A typical day begin with looking at our web stories and then ordering a new line of stories for day. Our writers started to cover stories and our web people began to work with our photographer to order the photos for the day.
What I enjoyed most was either responding to reporters inquiries or writing press releases on new breakthroughs on science or the humanities.
At 11 am we'd hold our daily meeting and go around the room and see where we were on video stories, new design s for marketing materials, as well as check on the progress of BMMC Highlights, which covered the most interesting students at the college. This publication was distributed to the political leadership in the State of New York.
At noon on Monday I attended the Executive Committee, which was an amalgam of the leadership of the college. We moved from one speaker to another--from Vice President of Academic Affairs to....... I found that it was there that I would be able to open up about media placement, the web site, the process on the development of a mobile web site, as well coordination with the Office of Development.
I found the experience to be exhilarating and life-changing.
The excitement of working with the media and developing new initiatives.
The slow implementation of new ideas by the CEO
