What Others Have Said...

Chad Mezera IMC Program Director, West Virginia University

“Jamie is an exceptionally dedicated and bright professional. In my experiences with him, I have been impressed by his capability and determination. I can't speak highly enough of his potential to contribute to an organization's marketing communications efforts.” March 12, 2009

Margaret Cooley Student, West Virginia University

“Jamie always has a unique perspective on the topic of discussion which combines insight, personal experience and humor with solid writing skills and research. With this approach, students can appreciate the knowledge presented and yet relate to the writer on a personal level. It's a very difficult skill to acquire and is one I personally admire. I always look forward to classes where Jamie is a participant and have seen his skill set advance as he advances through the IMC program at West Virginia University. I'm happy to recommend Jamie and look forward to finishing the IMC program with him.” February 3, 2009

Mitchell Friedman

“Jamie did solid work in putting together a public relations plan for PetsMart as part of his work in my Public Relations class. The insight and energy he demonstrated in that effort will serve him well in today's competitive job market.” February 4, 2009

Alexia Vanides

Instructor, West Virginia University

“Knowing, working and interacting with Jamie is an electrifying experience -- he is a combination talent of intellect, interest and insight; what a great person! A natural leader and excellent writer, Jamie motivates and encourages his peers to strive for the same high-level of accomplishment as he. I am honored to have been one of Jamie's academic "teachers." I can only imagine the stimulating intellectual exchange a business relationship would bring. I highly recommend Mr. Jamie Pachomski -- he will be an asset to any team, be it work or play.” April 20, 2009
