Understanding that tough financial times require creativity, former FCC Chairman William Kennard (1997-2001) advised the Syracuse University grad to fulfill her enthusiasm for high-tech legal work by using it to help enable non-ICT (information and communications technology) sectors to expand their efficiencies through better communications. He should know a lot about this in his current job as managing director of the Carlyle Group’s global media and telecom group.
