This Week's New Jobs and Internships

Robert Vanisko

Public Relations and History with a minor in Visual Journalism/Junior

Rob is from Hamilton, New Jersey. Working at Toppel has definitely helped him to hone his own career-related skills since he spends so much time helping other students develop these same skills.

Rob’s most recent internship was at Lotame Solutions. He was able to do a bit of everything, including graphic design work, writing and editing press releases, and developing long-term PR plans. This experience greatly changed his mindset and made him feel more comfortable with the idea of graduating and moving into the real world.

As a Peer Advisor at Toppel, he has a very different perspective on the resources and services that Toppel provides. He has found working with a staff of career professionals to be an incredible experience overall because they have so much knowledge and experience and can help students find careers.
