SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – Seton Hall University’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter has selected Sandra Maloney, Assistant Director at The Career Center at Seton Hall University as the 2012 recipient of its coveted “ROPE in Success Award.” The annual award, to be given on April 26, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. in the Chancellor’s Suite in Seton Hall’s University Center, acknowledges one tri-state area employee who has shared exceptional mentoring and support with Seton Hall University public relations students, interns and graduates. Employers seeking candidates for full-time employment or internship positions are welcome to attend this evening of recognition, networking, and friendship.
Sandra Maloney has been educating and training students in career development and recruiting for the past 6 years across the state of New Jersey. Maloney joined the team at Seton Hall in Fall 2009. As advisor of public relations students, she consistently helps in students’ searches for internships and jobs. Maloney has coordinated multiple career fairs and networking events for all students’ industry preferences.
“I first went to the Career Center as a sophomore and the first thing Sandra did was set me up with an interviewing and resume workshop,” said Ashley Manz, senior and PRSSA President. “After having three internships, with the help and guidance of Sandra, I already have a job before graduation.”
Past honorees include Josh Balber, Senior Director of Public Affairs at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (2011), Joan Bossio of Stern + Associates (2010), Tom Coyne of Coyne PR (2007), Kathleen Waugh of Toys R Us (2008), and Michael W. Kempner of the MWW Group (2009). The Award will be given to Maloney at Seton Hall’s ROPE in Success Event on April 26.
“The ROPE in Success Event celebrates the academic and career achievements of students and graduates of Seton Hall’s public relations program and its PRSSA chapter,” said Dr. Kathleen Rennie, APR, Senior Faculty Associate and Seton Hall PRSSA Advisor. “It is an opportunity for alumni and current students to reconnect with friends, network, and recognize some of the best students and biggest supporters of the Program.”
At the April 26 event, cocktails and light fare will be provided. A donation of $20 to PRSSA is suggested at the door. To RSVP, email Dr. Kathleen Donohue Rennie at Kathleen.Rennie@shu.edu.
