Title:GEMA’s 12th Annual Alumni Career Panel

Over 100 Georgetown students from the undergraduate program, the Law School and the MBA program attended GEMA’s 12th annual Alumni Career Panel at the Georgetown University Alumni House on October 16, 2013.

This year’s diverse panel of distinguished alumni (see below) spanned such job functions as digital journalism/reporting, legal and government relations, business development, marketing, and film/TV production across the film, television and digital industries.

The panelists spoke of their respective career journeys and lessons learned along the way, discussed their current positions and offered advice on breaking into the industry. A reception followed the panel. GEMA thanks Sarah Hay of Alumni Career Services and Erin Ferree of the Cawley Career Education Center for their great collaboration with GEMA in coordinating this event.
