"An Important E-mail..."
Val (MBA '01) - 03/26/2012
Val (MBA '01) had worked at Oxygen Media since its inception. When the company was purchased by NBC Universal, she was originally out of job as her function(s) were being absorbed into NBCU. Through the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Val found out that an IU grad, John (BS '82), was the President of MediaWorks, a major division within NBCU that housed all the functions Val was leading at Oxygen! Val e-mailed John with the Subject Line: Fellow IU grad. He agreed to meet and, one month later, Val received two offers from different divisions within his realm. Val's IU connection didn't get her the job offers - that was her skill set. Val has since left NBCU to found her own consulting practice in which she continues to use the IU Alumni network.
