Starz Encore Group's VP of Corporate Communications Eric Becker ('92) offers career advice to BU Law students
Eric Becker ('92), Vice President of Corporate Communications for Starz Entertainment and Starz Media, met with a group of students over lunch on Feb. 8 to discuss his unique career trajectory and offer advice.
Specifically, Becker addressed students whose ambitions might lie elsewhere than in practicing law, mirroring his work experience following law school. He assured students that they could apply their law degrees to a plethora of industries.
Immediately after graduating in 1992, Becker got a job working for the Denver Nuggets selling corporate packages of season tickets. He quipped that he was "arguably the most overqualified ticket salesperson they ever had."
Becker's position with the Nuggets eventually led him to positions in several corporate communication firms, where he became responsible for investor relations, media relations, and marketing. In 1999, he joined Starz.
The lunch and advising session were part of an ongoing series of alumni-student meetings orchestrated by the Career Development and Public Service Office.
