Where are the best positions in information and communications technology?
That was, in essence, the question posed last month by a jobless recent law school grad to a panel of former top FCC officials who were convened in Washington to discuss the Commission’s future under the next president. The question was so timely that several of the former FCC Chairmen and Chief of Staff panelists revisited the question later during their mini-conference, sponsored by George Mason University’s Law School at the National Press Club.
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.
