Stags Explore Exciting Career Opportunities at Dow Jones

This past December, Fairfield University’s Academic and Career Development Center provided students with the opportunity to travel and engage in a variety of professional development programs across Connecticut and in New York City. With a focus on career advancement, internship building, and networking, Fairfield students met and worked with a wide variety of alumni and industry professionals.

Students visited Dow Jones in New York City as part of a “Stags in the City” professional development event, and met with Fairfield alumni Joe Cappitelli ’89, Paul Vigna ’90, Mark Vernazza ’11, and Alexis Cope ’05, to learn about the company’s career and internship opportunities.

When the students arrived, they met with a Dow Jones recruiter, who presented an overview of the company and provided helpful information on how to land and prepare for an interview. Afterward, students participated in a panel discussion with the alumni. After describing their career paths and their positions at Dow Jones, the alumni provided helpful career advice.

The afternoon concluded with a tour of the newsroom.
