CMD Alum Kristen Essex Reaches Out to Current CMD Students

CMD Alumna Kristen Essex, Information Services Communications Specialist at Nestlé Waters North America, recently reached out to current CMD students with internship opportunities. As a Communications Specialist, Essex acts as a bridge between technology and communications, doing various projects for her department ranging from the creation of training material to the production of videos to the maintenance of the department’s intranet site. The position was created for her specifically after she completed two internships with the company.

Essex recently reached out to current CMD students with a handful of internship opportunities that Nestlé Waters will be offering this summer, including Direct Marketing, Direct Strategy and Communications, and Corporate Affairs. She advises students to consider such positions even if they seem to fall outside their chosen fields, saying that she never expected to be in her position but that her experiences from CMD classes have been invaluable in her work. Essex offers, “I’d be happy to talk to any student who might be interested in a similar field and take them through some of my projects and how I ended up in my current role.”
