– Junior Karissa Ciliento of the Lafayette volleyball team had the opportunity to complete an externship over the interim with the Philadelphia Phillies as part of Lafayette Career Services’ Externship Program.

During her time at Citizens Bank Park, Ciliento observed day-to-day activities in advertising sales, promotions, advertising and event coordination for the team.

“This experience has only made me more interested in further pursuing an internship or career in this field,” Ciliento said. “I am very thankful for the externship program that Career Services offers for me at Lafayette.”

Dave Buck, who graduated from Lafayette in 1986, is the Senior Vice President of Marketing & Advertising Sales for the team and was Ciliento’s externship supervisor. Buck was the point person on choosing Citizens Bank as a sponsor for the Phillies’ new stadium in 2004.
