CareerEdge Colleague

My name is Hailey Jennato and I’m a junior at Bentley from southern New Hampshire. I am majoring in Marketing with a Liberal Arts Major in Media Arts. I’m also a part of the Honors Program. As both a creative and analytical person, I knew studying marketing at Bentley would help me combine my strengths into a career.

On campus I’m a part of the Bentley Climbing Club and the Bentley Marketing Association. I’m also a brother of the Delta Sigma Pi business fraternity, and this year I’ll be serving as the VP of Professional Activities. I also play on the Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Team. I’m a big movie fan, and some of my other hobbies include reading, painting, and kickboxing.

Last summer I interned at Pegasystems on the content marketing team, where I worked on the corporate blog and a variety of other strategic projects. I’ve also completed a marketing internship at Growth Channel, a SaaS startup, where I focused heavily on content, email, and social media marketing. Before college, I was a trainer at a boutique kickboxing gym, where I demonstrated exercises and led one on one drills with members.

I’m super excited to be a part of the Pulsifer Undergraduate Career Development Center! I hope I can help the Bentley student body with professional development and job hunting.
