Hear what it’s like to work at a communications agency from Karina (Rajtar) Wiatros ’10, senior account executive at Maccabee Public Relations in Minneapolis. Wiatros will be visiting campus Thursday, April 4. She is speaking in several Communication Department classes, but will hold an open session for all students from 4 to 5 p.m in Salvi Lecture Hall, 332 Saint Mary’s Hall. Her talk at the afternoon open session will focus on working in an agency setting versus a corporate setting. This should be appealing to all students, especially those in marketing, advertising, graphic design, English, and public relations.
Wiatros graduated from Saint Mary’s with a journalism degree in 2010, and she earned a Master of Business Communication from the University of St. Thomas in 2016. Before joining Maccabee, Wiatros served as account manager at Tad Ware & Co., marketing manager at ABDO, and operations assistant at Nacel Open Door, Inc. Wiatros was also the head coach for the Speech Team at St. Anthony Village High School from 2012-2015.
