Director of Internal Communications
Chicago + worldwide
Internal communications is a field that improves what a business is saying to an important group -- its very own people! Its the job of an internal communications team to help company leaders connect with employees, share the direction of the company, instill pride, and, best of all, help make it fun to be part of the company.

As Director of Internal Communications, I lead a global team of marketers, writers, editors, and graphic designers to achieve these goals for the 13,000 people that work for Sapient. It is a job that is challenging, fun, and very diverse -- no two days are exactly the same because of the wonderful range of projects I am able to participate in.

When I was in high school, I enjoyed writing, journalism, yearbook, and debate, and these interests led me to explore a variety of careers in communications before I found the field I most enjoy. I welcome your questions and look forward to meeting with you on March 19.
