Melissa Susino ‘11

I am currently freelancing in the entertainment industry in television and music. Right now I'm working for Warner Music Group in New York City. I'm an office coordinator in the Finance and Sales Marketing department for WEA- (Warner-Elektra-Atlantic). I also work for Dancing with the Stars as a NY Story Assistant. During the season sometimes the show films rehearsals in New York City when the contestants have publicity events.
I've learned so much from William Paterson University. There are so many ways to get involved in production from the Communication Department. Being able to rent out cameras and getting to work on really great in-class projects helped me get better and better in the field. I really believe I wouldn't be where I am today without the help of WP. I was also able to land amazing internships with Sesame Workshop and Live With Regis & Kelly during my time at the University.
I plan on continuing to work for Warner Music Group where I hope to either work my way up in the Promotions or Video departments as a producer. I'm also an aspiring photographer and I'm hoping to start a small photography business on the side with my husband, who is also a photographer.
