Timothy J. McGorty '08
Timothy works in Boston full time as a Webcast Production Manager for Thomson Reuters. When asked how the English major prepared him for the real world, Tim replied by saying, “The English major is perfect for people who want to become well-read and articulate. While enrolled at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I improved my writing, public speaking, and analysis skills—the staples for success in any work environment. At the same time (thanks to the small number of required courses), the English major granted me extra time to take other classes like Mandarin Chinese, 3D Animation, and Documentary Filmmaking. As an added bonus, the friendships and connections I established at UMASS have proved to be most valuable in the real world”. In his spare time, Tim enjoys composing music and traveling.
