Ewing Concepcion, a senior studying Psychology and Mass Communication, is actively engaged on Merrimack’s campus as a leader of Mackapella and ALANA. Reflecting upon his experiences at Merrimack, Ewing credits his Communication Professor, Jacob Turner, for his learned leadership abilities. “He empowers students by taking the time to talk to each and every one as individuals,” When Ewing is not enjoying himself through the studies of communication, song, and dance, he is serving as an extremely motivated and determined participant of INROADS. Ewing’s exposure to INROADS has led him to a potential opportunity working abroad with all expenses paid!
INROADS’ mission is to develop and place talented, underserved youth in business and industry, and prepare them for corporate and community leadership. Upon being accepted into the program, participants are matched with an appropriate employer. Ever since his acceptance, Ewing has worked for UTC Aerospace Systems. Opportunities through the program and through his Co-op position as Human Resource Generalist have allowed Ewing to further develop his communication soft skills and master the navigation of the corporate business world.
Today, Ewing talks of his experiences at UTC Aerospace Systems with great enthusiasm, as he recognizes a future of endless possibilities. In addition to potentially working abroad, Ewing may also have the ability to work for a year while also receiving a fully-compensated MBA degree! Ewing’s advice for Merrimack students: “Apply for internships! They will provide you with experience, networking opportunities and professional development that can lead to full-time job offerings and other opportunities after graduation”.
