Kacey Keegan Participates In UIUC Panel Event

Kacey Keegan, our Content Writer + Strategist, was recently invited to participate in a networking event, Connecting Students & Alumni in the Windy City, hosted by her Alma Mater, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s College of Media (I-L-L). She sat on a Q&A panel with U of I alumni who now work for The Boeing Company, Edelman, Allstate, and Serafin & Associates. There were 10 panels of U of I alumni, and Kacey’s panel focused on “Career Paths in Strategic Communications and Public Relations.”

The event gave students a chance to ask thought-provoking questions about skills that are in-demand and experiences that are needed to excel in Communications and PR. Kacey was impressed with the amount of agency experience that many students had and their insightful questions.

Post-Q&A, there was a liquid event at Elephant and Castle where students could introduce themselves to alumni in a more casual setting and get a feel for what it’s like to network with other professionals.

Participating in this event gave Kacey the opportunity to practice two of our core values: “we uphold a culture of learning” and “we give back and pay it forward”. We love any opportunity to make an impact with our flava’!
