Recent CMD Alum Willie Sleight Hired as Marketing and Communications Coordinator for Boston Law Firm

William ‘Willie’ Sleight, a CMD alumnus who graduated last May, was recently hired as Marketing and Communications Coordinator at Hirsch Roberts Weinstein LLP, a small law firm in Boston, MA. According to Sleight, he discovered the opportunity through networking: a discussion with another recent graduate at Ithaca College’s Alumni Weekend last fall connected him with a staffing agency, which led him to an interview within two weeks. Sleight said of the process, “I interviewed on a Tuesday and was hired the same Friday.”

As the Marketing and Communications Coordinator, Sleight maintains the firm’s website and LinkedIn account, creates and updates a media contact list, emails clients, maintains a blog, and does various other design and marketing tasks. He also assists the firm with paralegal and administrative tasks. “I am in an industry I did not think I’d be in, but I love it,” Sleight says. “I love the potential for growth and it is definitely a direct result of my experiences at Ithaca and more specifically the Park School.”
