Building Your BossBabe Support Group
January 14, 2019 by Susan Fiorentino 

*** begin quote ***

Post college, finding a supportive group that fit my professional needs was difficult for me to find. I attended a very small college, where all my social and support circles where in one bubble. When I needed help with a paper or advice on applying for internships, my advisor and the Career Development Office was an email or quick walk to campus. I realized that finding support for my big dreams was going to take more than staying in my small bubble because that comfort no longer existed. It has been almost 7 (!!!) years since I graduated from Manhattan College and following these five steps has (over time) helped me get through some difficult personal and professional times.

My hometown friends and college friends were in the same position as me. We were (and still are) trying to find our place in the professional world. We kept in touch for a while but after some time, some friendships just fall apart. This could be simply because of location or interests. Luckily, I have an extremely supportive family who always supported my goals. Friends will slip in and out of your life but family (hopefully) will be in your corner to always support you.

During college, I had an injury that forced me to give up one of my favorite things, cheerleading. Working out was put in the back of my mind after that. After being so tired all the time and feeling unmotivated applying to jobs, I thought working out again could help me. Playing sports my whole life, I knew group fitness was more of a fit for me for long term results versus a regular gym. I stumbled across Kettlebellas and have been hooked ever since. For the past five years, I have been taking classes there sometimes 5 times a week with three of the best trainers and supportive group of women. Being around supportive women is very difficult to find, but this place has saved me so many times from doubting myself, body image issues, and other things that come up day to day. It didn’t take long, I noticed the more I committed myself to getting to the gym, the better I felt and looked. When I am mentally fit, I perform better at work, strive better personally, and am more motivated to handle my busy schedule. It may take time, but finding a supportive fitness group (in person or an online community) will have a huge benefit to helping you complete your goals.

While studying at Manhattan College, I knew I wanted to be a part of the non-profit world. I grew up and live in Staten Island, which is a very tight knit community. It is a small community with an even smaller and overlapping network in the non-profit field. In fundraising, there is a strong emphasis on relationship building so that is something that even today, still sticks with me. Even though I have had a few jobs since graduating, I still keep in touch with volunteers and/or former co-workers. Relationships are ever evolving and we have been able to help each other reach our goals even after we parted ways at other jobs. Changing jobs in a small community, but in the same field, taught me some valuable lessons such as not building bridges and keeping positive even in difficult work conditions.

Christopher DeFrancesco
Assistant Director of International Enrollment
Graduate Admissions
University of New Haven

I was born and raised in Hamden, CT and graduated from Manhattan College in the Bronx, NY with a Bachelor’s in Sociology with a concentration in Human Services. I focused most of my research on the history of LGBTQ communities and their impact on public policy and the military.

Off campus I completed internships for Mother’s Against Drunk Driving CT, getting involved in public speaking, advocating and creating awareness of the dangers of drunk driving.

Throughout my time in undergrad I was a member of the Manhattan College singers, and actively involved in student services, intra-murals, as well as a mentor and tutor for NYC students in preparation for the SATs and the college application process.

After undergrad I earned a job as the Assistant Director of  Enrollment at my Alma Mater, Notre Dame High School in West Haven, CT. During my time at Notre Dame I was responsible for recruiting students domestically and internationally, interviewing prospective students and their families, researching the national independent school climate, chairing the NEASC reaccreditation Homestay Committee, coordinating train and bus travel, and overseeing student groups. I went on to earn a Master’s in Education from Albertus Magnus College.

Currently I am the Assistant Director of International Enrollment. Feel free to reach out should you need any information regarding the school or any of our unique programs.
