"If you had asked me 4 years ago where I'd be employed post-graduation, I would have never thought to say media. But that's the beauty of the IMC program. You get such a quality, rounded education in all aspects of the communications world that come job-hunt time, you could quite possibly fit right in to any part of the industry. I'm really happy where I am, and for that, I am truly grateful to Ithaca College and every supportive professor and peer I've crossed paths with."
