Suzanne Cuccurullo, a former vice president of marketing at Fidelity Investments, was laid off by the company during the financial crisis of 2008. She decided then to look for a career in higher education, one of the state's largest, steadiest, and most desirable employment sectors. She started her foray into this industry by meeting 60 people across 35 institutions, not only to build connections, but also learn about the industry. She also started a Twitter account focused on the field.
