CW Announces This Year’s Alumni Achievement Award Recipient

Felicia graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 2017, and her Associate’s degree in the same field in 2016. While at CW, Felicia was on the Dean’s list, became a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and earned Honor’s status through CW’s Honors Program.  Felicia was the recipient of a CWCF Honor’s Program Scholarship in 2017.   She was also a work-study student in our Career Services department during her studies at CW.

After graduation, Felicia started her career as a buyer assistant and was quickly promoted to corporate buyer at Restaurant Depot.  Subsequently, she transitioned to the field of advertising, joining ICON International, a specialized finance company.  She moved up the ranks from Media Associate to Media Buyer within a year where she played a key role to ensuring that media campaigns effectively reached the highest number of people within a client’s target audience.

Felicia found her niche at Aston Carter in Stamford Connecticut, a distinguished world-class provider of recruitment and staffing services to companies requiring high caliber talent and premium services to over 7,000 companies across North America.  Felicia is a Northeast Regional Recruiter where she serves as the main point of contact throughout the entire recruitment cycle.  She plays a pivotal role in screening candidates and is responsible for identifying, evaluating, and selecting top talent.

Felicia is responsible for recruiting talent in the following areas of Creative & Marketing, Project Management, Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, and Supply Chain & Procurement.  This September will mark her third year anniversary with Aston Carter.  Make sure you give her a follow on LinkedIn!

Felicia says “The College of Westchester made her feel at home.  The professors and staff reminded her of exactly what her father told her each and every day that everything she accomplished at CW was for her own benefit and her future.”

For all her perseverance and determination, please join me in congratulating Felicia Conte for earning The College of Westchester’s 2024 Alumni Achievement Award.
