The Hannifan Center for Career Connections’ one-day alumni shadowing program begins during the winter break in mid-December and runs through the January Term.

“The purpose is to expose students to specific careers and potential mentors so they get a taste of a particular area to see if it sparks a more serious interest,” said Barbara Cambia ’81, the center’s executive director.

The program is the brainchild of Hillel Presser ’12, a former adjunct professor at Lynn and asset protection attorney with a domestic and international practice based in Boca Raton. It provides motivated and ambitious students with the chance to trail Lynn alumni in the workplace for a day to learn about career paths and job responsibilities—creating connections with fellow Fighting Knights for possible future mentoring and networking opportunities.

“I’ve had the opportunity to mentor Lynn students … those who I taught in class and who made an effort to stay in touch,” said Presser. “I know how important a mentor is. I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am today without one. Yes, it’s important to have an academic framework, but maybe even more important to see things with a real-life view and build relationships. I like to say it’s not who you know, but who knows you.”

A member of The Lynn University Leadership Society since 2009, Presser received his MBA from Lynn in 2012. His wife, Ashley (Martini), is also a Lynn graduate—receiving a B.S. in 2009 and an MBA in 2010.
