Kicking into High Gear at the Transportation Technology Career Fair

New England Tech’s annual Transportation Technology Career Fair was held on Thursday, March 3, 2016 on the Access Road Campus in Warwick. Over 30 companies attended this year’s event, making it our largest employer turnout to date for the transportation event! A mix of automotive, automotive service management, auto body and marine companies were able to speak with current students and alumni about their businesses and share information about potential job opportunities, all while learning about the kinds of skills a New England Tech graduate brings to the table. For the students and graduates, it was a great opportunity to network and build relationships with prospective employers and learn about the many different paths their careers could lead to. A few representatives were New England Tech alumni themselves; Aaron Beltram (class of ’15) from Bald Hill Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Kia, Seth Cassidy (class of ’98) from Balise Ford of Cape Cod, and Rick DaSilva (class of ’03) from Speedcraft Volkswagen.

Alumni News: Videos of homes for sale are in demand

Two New England Tech Graduates, Paul Raposo and Justin Hebert, show how they are using their degree in Digital Media Production (previously named Associate degree in Video Audio Production and Bachelors degree in Digital Recording Arts) into a great career.

From Providence Journal:

Producing videos to sell homes is a practice that has moved well beyond the rarified realm of the luxury market.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Some videos are clearly amateur jobs, possibly shot with a mobile phone. Some are slickly professional. Others are almost works of art.

Producing videos to sell homes is a practice that has moved well beyond the rarified realm of the luxury market. Westcott Properties, a Providence agency that specializes in foreclosures, is even making videos for bank-owned properties and rentals.

Last week, more than 800 of the nearly 5,200 residential property listings on riliving.com, the website of Rhode Island’s State-Wide Multiple Listing Service, had some sort of video accompaniment. Some of these are video versions of photographic slide shows, many with voice-overs. But others are more lushly produced and look like short films.

Residential Properties, which has five offices in Rhode Island, has two full-time videographers on staff and has made more than 500 videos for clients. The company is planning to expand its video marketing to highlight communities, enhance agent bios, and produce a video podcast featuring CEO Sally Lapides, Readey said.

Chace and Readey said their videos usually include community footage in addition to featuring the house itself. As Readey said, “You’re not just buying the house, you’re buying the location.”

On Tuesday morning, the Residential team was shooting a video for a new listing at 215 Arlington Ave., in Providence; the house is priced at $1,375,000.

Listing Realtor Nancy Markham said it is one of a number of high-end properties coming on to the market this spring on Providence’s East Side. A video “raises the profile of the house higher in search engines,” Markham said, and “everybody is attached to their computers.”

Scholarship Established in Memory of NEIT Alum

Brian F. Sullivan 1964-2014

Brian F. Sullivan
1964-2014

New England Tech is pleased to announce the establishment of the Brian F. Sullivan Memorial Scholarship Fund.  This scholarship was established with the assistance of Micro Technology Group (MTG) with additional support provided by the Kaplan Simons Family Foundation. These organizations each donated $2,500 which will be awarded to eligible students enrolled in NEIT’s Electronics Technology programs.

Brian was an NEIT alum who graduated in 1984 with an Associate in Science Degree in Electronics Technology.  Until his untimely death this past summer, Brian was employed at MTG as a manufacturer’s sales representative and became a close colleague and personal friend of Ed Renola, a senior executive at MTG. During a recent visit to the college to discuss the scholarship fund, Ed shared that Brian credited his professional success to the education he received at New England Tech.  To honor Brian and recognize the impact that NEIT had on his life, Ed, along with another MTG executive, Spencer Simons, established a scholarship in Brian’s memory.

MTG had one special request with the establishment of the scholarship.  Ed mentioned that he and Brian had a close mutual friend, Al Bucci. Ironically, Al’s grandson, Alex Bucci, is currently a NEIT student so MTG requested that Alex receive a scholarship in memory of Brian. A very industrious individual, Alex is currently a bachelor’s candidate in the Architectural Building Engineering Technology program.   He also earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management in September, 2013 and an Associate in Science Degree in Building Construction & Design in March, 2012. Alex is also the co-owner of a construction company.

On January 14, 2015, much to his surprise, Alex was presented with a $1,000 scholarship as the first recipient of the Brian F. Sullivan Memorial Scholarship by Joelle DeQuattro–Sullivan, Brian’s wife, along with Spencer Simons from MTG.    A well-deserving student was honored while remembering a well-respected grad.
