Greetings from a Communication/Marketing Bearcat Alumna

Posted by Sadie Stresky on Tue, Jul 8, 2014 @ 11:07 AM

Sadie StreskyHello, friends! Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your day to look at my little corner of the blogiverse. My name is Sadie Stresky, and I graduated from Saint Vincent in 2013 with a communication major and minors in marketing and graphic design. Presently, I work as the Digital Marketing Manager at 321Blink, a full-service marketing and production agency in Aspinwall, PA.

I’ve always wanted to blog, but I felt like I didn’t have much to say about any one topic. It was only after working for a few months that I realized I had been jotting down notes to myself about how to succeed at work, maintain a sense of professionalism, and general life advice. I hope that through this blog, I can share some of my findings with you!

Saint Vincent played a huge part in shaping who I am today. It all started when my high school guidance counselor suggested I take a tour of the campus because it’s a “nice person school.” I’m glad I took her advice! We Bearcats are so lucky to have such a friendly, welcoming community to call home.  It's something special when professors, neighbors, and even strangers (who won't be strangers for long!) go out of their way to help you however they can.

My four years at Saint Vincent gave me amazing friends and memories that will last a lifetime- not to mention an excellent education! As a student, I loved being involved in all sorts of ways, from running the communication club (which was once Ad Club, then Culture Pub, now MAD COMM) to being in Alpha Phi Omega, Women in Business, and other clubs. I had an amazing work-study experience at the Seminary and Archabbey Public Relations office and was in the pioneer group of Fred Rogers Scholars, which helped fuel my passion for children’s media issues.


All of these things helped me be well-prepared for my first job out of college. I use my degree every day at 321Blink. As a project manager, I oversee the making of creative campaigns from start to finish. Sometimes, I’ll also do some graphic design work and copywriting – I even got to be in a commercial for Sendell Volkswagen! It’s always amusing when people say, “Hey, I think I just saw you on TV!”

Just like at Saint Vincent, each day on the job brings new challenges and things to learn. I’m looking forward to sharing more of my journey with you!
