Repeat Screening of 'New Normal' at City Tech in November
Professor Josephine Accumanno-Braneky, Department of Computer Systems Technology internship coordinator, hosted a luncheon for NYSE Euronext managers Salvatore Sigona, Dan Meyer and Donald Brown in City Tech’s Janet Lefler Dining Room on December 5, 2012. Their discussion focused on how to increase the number of City Tech students serving in internship positions with the multinational financial services corporation.
Salvatore Sigona, an alumnus and former City Tech employee, has hosted at least one internship student who was then hired by his department. Dan Meyer, who spearheaded the internship program at NYSE, has been an advocate for several years and recently formalized the program with mentors from his department as well as one headed by Donald Brown.
“At present,” says Braneky, “we have nine students interning with NYSE Euronext and hopefully can increase that number in the near future. Everyone at the firm has been so helpful to the students, who are gaining extensive experience there. Many are so grateful for that experience that they have asked to continue going to the site even though their required time for the internship has been satisfied.”
