Two Computing and Engineering Technology Graduates Begin Their Jobs the Same Day

Bethany Ross (CIS’12) and Brian Avery (EET/CT’12) happen to begin their jobs the same day, July 9th, 2012.

Bethany assumes the position of Technical Client Service Representative at Dyn in downtown Manchester, a infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) leader, specializing in both managed DNS and Email Delivery for the enterprise client, small business and personal user.

Brian will be a software engineer at Acme Packet in Bedford MA, the leader in session delivery network solutions, which enable the trusted, first-class delivery of next-generation voice, data and unified communications services and applications across IP networks.

Coincidence? On the surface, maybe. In essence, no. Both Bethany and Brian impressed their employers with strong technical skills and professional knowledge, relevant internship and project experience, and evidence-supported communication and team work skills. That’s what the Computing and Engineering Technology programs are about!

Bethany is the recipient of the 2012 Karla Vogel Excellence in CIS Award. Brian is the recipient of the 2011 Alumni Meritorious Service Award.

Congratulations, Bethany and Brian!
