  ROSARIO ROSITANI
 
Professional/Personal Overview
  My research and investigative skills were taught via my work with the CIA. I traveled the world, learned numerous cultures, and made hundreds of global contacts, which lead me, post-CIA to work for an Italian press agency in Rome. My training came from award-winning reporters who came from all over the world. My investigative skills became stronger and my communication skills, which were my prime assets, became even stronger. My first assignment was to cover the ill health and final demise of Pope John Paul II, later covering the voting of the now retired Pope Benedict. My training is hands-on and I am ready to go out in the field, as I did for the CIA and the press agency in Rome, to obtain stories for a reporter when I employed for a news agency. My family and I are relocating back home to CT to be closer to NYC for employment purposes.

I HAVE A BA AND TERMINATED MY MBA STUDIES UPON BEING HIRED BY THE PRESS AGENCY IN ROME. MY EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT, BUT THE HANDS-ON TRAINING AND THE STORIES I FOLLOWED IN ROME AND THROUGHOUT EUROPE AND THE PEOPLE I MET DURING MY TENURE, CAN NEVER BE REPLACED BY AN EDUCATION. I AM PROUD OF MY BACKGROUND AND TRAINING I RECEIVED, WHICH MAKES ME A VALUABLE ASSET TO ANY NEWS AGENCY. I ATTENDED NUMEROUS JOURNALISM FUNCTIONS IN EUROPE AND WAS INVITED TO MANY DIPLOMATIC EVENTS. I MET AND WAS INVITED TO A PARTY FOR THE THREE FEMALE HOSTAGES IN IRAQ, WHOM TWO WERE FROM ITALY AND ONE FORM IRAQ. THEY FELT A BOND WITH ME AND I WAS ABLE TO INTERVIEW THEM, WITH ANOTHER REPORTER. THIS IS ONE OF MANY FUNCTIONS I ATTENDED. ALL STORIES I HELPED RESEARCH, WERE ALWAYS UNDER THE NAME OF THE REPORTER BECAUSE I WAS NOT A JOURNALIST, BUT IN TRAINING.
