"From Sea to Shining Sea"

As a student at Nyack College you have seen and experienced our metropolitan and adjacent geographic areas—that’s very  good!

But – – – as you begin to discover and think about the huge world out there (much of which you possibly have not yet seen or experienced), you might want to consider some new geographic areas which could  bring you exciting, novel, and learning  internship experiences.

Our Nyack College internship program not only provides you with many tri-state area opportunities for internships, but we are now pleased to provide you with “leads” and opportunities throughout  our country-- “North to South, East to West” (for example: Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey,  Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Florida, California-----and even England!!).

Maybe the opportunity to experience some of those “far-flung” areas is not within the current possibility of your travel, educational or potential business experience – – – but to be aware of them is the first step in broadening your career horizons, providing  possibilities for your growth as  a human being!

Additionally, traveling to new areas can provide you with opportunities to “tell your story” to the uninitiated!

So – – consider it as a part of your future -– The possibilities are endless!!

IT'S ALL ABOUT WHO YOU KNOW : Blog by Jennifer Cook (Business Major)

“In business, it’s all about who you know.”

These were words I heard early on in my freshman year at Nyack College, said by professors and students alike. These words are somewhat said in jest, yet they are so very true.

Now in my junior year, these words are more important to me than ever. Junior year means that senior year is fast approaching, and it’s time to get serious about job searching, resume building, and working toward a career. All of these responsibilities can seem daunting. Sending out resumes to faceless corporations can seem hopeless, and it’s easy to feel ill-equipped and unsure about every step. This is when connections are more valuable than ever. Having a contact to touch base with to get the ball rolling can make the process of job searching seem manageable. Sending a resume to a company where the recruitment officer is known to you makes it more personal and within reach. And possibly most important, meeting with an internship advisor can be the most valuable asset to your professional presence.

Fortunately for all you Nyack College business students, this crucial asset is at your fingertips. Bud DiFluri is head of the Business Department Internship Program at Nyack, and perhaps one of the most valuable connections  that business students can make in their four years of college.

The process is simple: contact Bud via email (NyackIntern@aol.com), and set up a meeting in person, by phone (908-753-5261) or through Skype (“Nyackintern”). From here on out, Bud is available to assist you in helping you prioritize and meet your career goals. In my own personal meeting with Bud, we discussed my resume, my passions, and short-term goals. He prepared me for interviews by giving me feedback on my professional presence in person and on paper.

This meeting not only gave me priceless guidance and knowledge, but also a confidence in myself that I have taken into job interviews. Making a connection with Bud has motivated me to make other professional connections and take advantage of opportunities that come my way. Since meeting with Bud, I have had two job interviews for this summer and look forward to another one soon.

As I pursue my business classes at Nyack, I am now the upperclassman who preaches what my experiences have taught me:  “In business, it’s all about who you know.”

"Promising 1-2-3"

 Bud’s Bits                                Bud DiFluri


                   In my Nyack sales classes, students are told that to succeed they must always:

                                                     1. “Underpromise---then Overdeliver”!!... and…

                                            2.   Don't "overpromise –then under deliver"!!...and…

                                            3. "If you make a promise..…. keep it!"


In your role as an intern,  it'll be important that you  properly represent  your company as you each abide by the principle of "under promising…then over delivering" in your daily contacts with fellow students, faculty, clients, business people, cooperating partners, etc.

Often times, you may be the primary " face" of your company —the only company’s face or voice  ”they” will see or hear!

 If, as a positive example you tell a contact that “we will be in touch with you (e.g) "next Friday… or earlier if possible" and you make the contact earlier than "next Friday", you  have "underpromised and overdelivered!"

If on the other hand, as a negative example, you fall prey to the all – too – simple ease of confirming a contact date or time to someone (e.g.-"next Friday or earlier if possible "), then not following through or contacting them as promised--- that's "overpromising – – and underdelivering", which will reflect upon your veracity as well as the veracity of your company. The client or contact might easily  determine that you---and your company--- don't keep promises!

Simply put – successful people "underpromise – then overdeliver"!

 And---successful people keep their promises!
