Philadelphia Art Museum Careers
Everywhere you turn these days, it seems as if yet another article has been published detailing how few students are getting jobs after college, even those who had internships during their time as an undergrad. With things looking so grim, where can students turn for hope about their future personal success?
Sometimes the best option for college students is to seek out success stories from people a few years older than them—people who were college students just like them, who started out as interns and eventually were hired as full-time employees. People can and do make it. One such example is La Salle University graduate student, and Philadelphia Museum of Art employee (and former intern!), Amanda Komarnicki.
CP: Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Komarnicki: My name is Amanda Komarnicki. I am from a small town outside of Lancaster, PA and I am 24 years old. I have always had a strong passion for the arts, appreciating it as an experience and creating it myself. I enjoy painting, drawing, and experimenting with other mediums. I also love the outdoors and being active. This past fall I hiked the Appalachian Trail in the Shenandoah Mountains for the first time and also ran my first full marathon – the Philadelphia Marathon of course!
CP: What is your educational background?
Komarnicki: For my undergraduate degree, I attended La Salle University on an academic and athletic scholarship playing for their Division I women’s soccer team. I graduated in 2012 with a major in art history and two business minors, one in management and the other in marketing. Currently, I am attending the La Salle University School of Business working towards my graduate degree. I will receive my MBA, concentrated in marketing, from La Salle this May.
