Profiles in Success
Erika Amandola, B.F.A. in Public Relations, Class of 2013
"I never thought I'd qualify for an internship as a freshman, but thanks to my LIU Post education and background, the New York Islanders felt I was ready to work for an entire season in the sponsorship department. At my internship I learned first-hand what it's like to work at professional sports team. Thanks to that experience I've gained important practical knowledge working in a business environment and I have become more confident in my career path."
