Caroline Curtinez is a 2018 graduate of TCNJ’s School of Business, where she majored in economics and political science. She currently works as a softlines coordinator at Paramount Global, a media and entertainment production company. In her role, Caroline serves as a liaison between vendors and Paramount’s internal teams like Retail Development, Franchise, and Marketing, working to bring intellectual property to retail through consumer products licensing. Caroline previously worked in ad sales for Paramount before transitioning to her current position.

While a student at TCNJ, Caroline was a member of the college’s co-ed professional business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi (DSP), and is currently a member of its NYC Alumni chapter. She cites both the fraternity and the TCNJ School of Business as significant contributors to her early professional success, as they encouraged her to think critically, prioritize fine details, and taught her how to network and resume-build. One class in particular that stood out to Caroline was Professor O’ Grady’s Environmental Economics course, which exposes students to sustainability in the business world and examines how corporations weigh the cost-benefit of implementing sustainable practices, something Caroline has observed first-hand in her time at Paramount.

In addition to working full-time, Caroline also takes continuing education courses such as the Metaverse course at the University of Pennsylvania, which she recommends to all college graduates, especially those who receive tuition assistance from their employers.

When asked what advice she has for current students, Caroline emphasized that being unsure of your career path even after graduation is not the end of the world: “I had no idea what I wanted to do after college. I enjoyed studying political science and economics but when I graduated, I didn’t gravitate towards jobs in those fields. Sometimes it takes a little while to figure out what you want to do, and that’s perfectly OK,” she said. “Don’t feel pressured to know exactly what you want to do as soon as you graduate,” she elaborated, “it’s going to take a little while until you find what you enjoy. Don’t pay attention to what everyone else is doing. Also take on as many internships as you can.”

Caroline resides in Jersey City and lists making charcuterie boards, attending barre classes, and listening to the “How I Built This” podcast with Guy Raz as some of her favorite hobbies.
