Jacqueline Engelsman Serves as Panelist for Rider University
“This was such a great opportunity to be a part of. I am so grateful that RRBB provides me with the flexibility and encouragement to give back to the communities I care about, including my alma mater. I hope that sharing my story with the next generation of marketing professionals is inspirational for them, as they continue to inspire me to keep learning as well,” said Jackie.
Karl Craft, Rider’s Associate Director of Career Development and Success, also commented, “When educating our students about resources and the paths they can take, alumni experiences are one of the strongest tools we can utilize. Not only can we highlight the range of experiences, but providing perspectives of success within the community is integral in the process of moving from inspiration to action. Support provided by alumni like Jackie greatly expands our reach.”
