So, where are our PR grads today?  Madeline Dombi graduated in May, 2013 and was one of three  guests selected for “Katie”.  Madeline spent several days taping with Katie Couric as part of “Katie Classified” highlighting the perspectives of three women in the current competitive employment marketplace.    Not only was Madeline  on “Katie”, but she was introduced to influential employment specialists in NYC.  Congratulations Madeline!
