Gerard Longo, '10
P.R. and Marketing Coordinator, PBS 39
I graduated from Moravian as a Writing track English major (and Graphic Design Minor) in May 2010.
I started as a local news contributor for Patch.com websites across my native New Jersey from 2010 to 2012. Later that year, I found myself with a contract offer to perform internal communications work for the IBM Design Lab in New York City. After my contract with IBM expired at the end of 2013, I took the marketing and communications knowledge gleaned from my time there to build my own independent projects throughout 2014. These included GTL Career Services, a resume creation service, and my internet radio organization, The Quinn Spinn (which originally aired here at Moravian on WRMC).
Those self-made ventures, in addition to all that came before them, gave me plenty of hard-earned, real-world experience that has translated well into my current role as the PR & Marketing Coordinator at PBS39 here in Bethlehem. I love what I do and the people I work with, and I have come full-circle, back into the Lehigh Valley with stories and insight to share.
