My name is James Weiser, I am a fourth year New Media Marketing Student at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)- Saunders College of Business. hoping to pursue a degree in marketing analytics and digital marketing. Some of my passions would include technology and a love of people. I am a server at Olive Garden in Greece New York, and have been doing that for four years. Previously I was a manager at Laser Quest which was an absolute blast. Not only was I at a place that enjoyed having fun, but everything that I did there was valued. I got to work with the marketing team at HQ to come up with creative campaigns to increase our business. This is where my passion started for marketing.
In my free time I like to play video games with friends and go to the bar for a drink with some buddies. I am an extremely passionate person. If you need somebody to do something, I am the guy. I will spend countless hours to make sure that what I do is to my best ability.
My Future Life and Career
I would like to stay within Rochester NY as its close to family and wouldn’t be too much of a chance. My goal is to get a job at a nice digital marketing agency in Downtown Rochester and be able to earn enough money where I can move on my own. The immediate goal after graduation would be finding a summer co-op. Eventually, this hopefully could turn into a full time position afterwards.
My absolute dream would be to move to Los Angeles one day, get enough experience in Rochester and move to the west coast. I would do this once I feel like I am ready for a massive change in my life. Change does scare me, but it is inevitable.

My name is Kayla Matthews and I am a third year New Media Marketing student with a minor in Advertising and Public Relations; with an expected graduation of Spring 2019. I transferred to RIT with an Associate Degree in Business Administration from Monroe Community College. I am looking for a Social Media Marketing internship/co-op for Summer 2018 or Fall 2018. Very excited and eager to accept a marketing co-op that will allow me to get real-world experience; and insight on how my education will become a career.
Kayla’s involvement on campus:
During my time at MCC, I was not involved on campus and I wanted to make sure that was not the case here at RIT. During my first semester, I joined Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority. I love the connections it brings me and allows me to be more involved on campus. Being a commuter it does make it more hard for students to get involved.
Kayla’s Work experience:
My work experience includes six years of customer service. I currently work for Luxe Salon & Spa as a Spa Coordinator and Get Caked Bakery and a customer service representative. Lastly, I am an Independent Distributor for Young Living Essential oils and social media allows me to grow my business easily. I enjoy using Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat to inform my friends, family and followers more about the benefits of using essentials oils and the many other products Young Living provides.
I recently have just started a marketing internship with Think Mink Marketing. This internship is done remotely which has helped me increase my productivity, time management, and self-discipline since I do not go into an office to complete my work.
My name is Alexander Yu Huang. I am a SOIS student at Rochester Institute of Technology studying to become a Full Stack developer. SOIS, or School of Individualized Studies, is a program where students can create a degree that is personalized to their needs and interests. It is an excellent program for students who feel dissatisfied with the courses taken in other degrees. However, students must provide a valid reasoning behind the courses chosen to receive this degree.
Full Stack Developer
For my SOIS degree I have a focus on Computer Science and on Information Sciences and Technology with a minor in Marketing. The courses I take in both these areas will allow me to pursue my career as a Full Stack developer. A Full Stack developer is known as the “jack of all trades, master of none” in the computer world. They have knowledge in both the front-end and back-end of a program or website. Although they don’t specialize in anything, they are the most proficient in connecting both sides together. This is due to being able to understand the whole program or website on a macro level. I want to be a Full Stack developer because I enjoy “seeing the big picture.” I like to see everything work together but not necessarily how each individual component works by itself in detail.
I mentioned that I have a minor in Marketing. Although marketing is not something people normally think of when it comes to being a Full Stack developer, I feel that marketing is helpful for this career. SEO is a very important aspect when it comes to designing a website. It dictates how well your website is doing and whether or not there may be improvements to make. By knowing about marketing beforehand I am able to design a website with SEO in mind and bring about satisfactory results.

My name is Yasmani Aguiar and I come from paradise in the Caribbean; that’s right, I was born in Cuba and have been fortunate to visit my home land four times now. If you ever have questions about my journey and experiences there, don’t hesitate to ask. Also, I’m the Student Senator for our lovely Saunders College of Business. I’m majoring in finance with minors in marketing and economics. My hobbies include exercising, skateboarding when it’s warm out, cooking and exploring different states/countries. I aspire to lead a healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. In conclusion, I enjoy trying new things in all aspects of life so I may experience as much as I can while I can and to establish an awesome lifestyle for the future.
As a Finance student, I’m looking towards applying my skills, experience and knowledge towards a non-traditional finance role. Furthermore, I’ve been looking at business development jobs, financial advising and rotational leadership programs in reputable companies in the U.S. I’m also open to relocating anywhere and working abroad for some time; as the title implies, I want to experience life’s journey since I only have one life to do so. Additionally, my interests in photography, health and wellness and traveling will be somehow combined in the future as side projects or a business.
Furthermore, self-learning is something I enjoy and will continue to partake in . My goal is to learn more about health and wellness with the possibility of transitioning to that sector full-time and opening my own health-related business in the future. My main goal throughout my career(s) is to look forward to going to work every morning I wake up and enjoying what I do.
I’m a 4th Year New Media Marketing student at the Rochester Institute of Technology with minors in Finance and Communication. I will be graduating in December 2018 with a B.S. degree in Business Administration.
I am originally from Massena, New York, a small town neighboring the Canadian border. I now consider Rochester my home after moving here in the summer of 2014. I’ve always thought it was wiser to move away from home and realize you want to move back, rather than to never leave at all. Outside the classroom, I am the president and co-captain of the RIT Roller Hockey club. I have been also a brother of a Business Fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi, since freshman year. Throughout my years at RIT I have met some incredible people, been introduced to many new ideas, and grown into an aspiring business professional. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in college, I am becoming increasingly eager to see what opportunities lie ahead in the next chapter of my life.
When I first entered college, I had predominantly no idea what I wanted to accomplish in life. I now envision myself working in an environment where I will have the opportunity to surround myself with like-minded individuals to collaboratively get things done. I am still unsure which route I will take to get me there. As a result, I am exploring any and all opportunities that come my way. Since, I have found a passion for marketing and sales. I love the person to person interactions that the two fields have to offer. I believe that building legitimate relationships with others is a key component of success in every facet of life. Eventually, I’d like to end up in the sports industry.
I am looking to expand my professional network. So please take the time to connect with me on LinkedIn and check out my resume. I have provided links to both below. If nothing else, do me a huge favor and simply click on each of the links below. It will help me a great deal with my Search Engine Marketing Analytics class.
My name is Eboni, I study New Media Marketing and I love art! There is art in the way a wave crashes on
the sand or the way a meal is presented at a restaurant. You can say I’ve dedicated my life to the arts. I have bungee jumped in Mexico, jet skied in Aruba, and even cooked paella in Spain. I’ve been savvy with paint brushes and pencils for as long as I can remember. I consider myself to be very free spirited and open minded. So, when it came to picking a career for myself the choice was obvious! I was going to study… new media marketing.
Confused? Well let me explain. I believe marketing is a form of art. Anything that requires a level of creativity and innovation is art. Media Marketing done right has the ability to tap into people’s emotions, twist the way they think and move millions towards a common goal. If that’s not an art form I don’t know what is. Have you ever seen a n add the made you smile or a commercial that brought you dangerously close to tears? Well that is art… and art has always been a huge part of my life and by studying marketing I know it always will be.
I was able to apply the skill sets I learned into my work experience and have had huge impact on not only the company but the world! If you want to learn more about me and how I am doing my part to change the marketing world check out the links below!
I specialize is in social media marketing and advertising which includes hands on experience with both traditional, new media marketing and analytics. I’m a 4th year New Media Marketing Major with extra courses in Film Studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Social Media Marketing Work Experience
I have experience in business planning, marketing strategizing, and providing advertising support. Furthermore, my skill set includes blogging, social media, creating ads, evaluating websites and developing strategic plans for improvement based on analytics.
Additionally, this past fall I had the opportunity to co-op with Ciredon Environmental and Safety Services, Inc. During my co-op, I met with the firm’s management team to discuss their goals and objectives. The purpose was to assess their existing business plan and marketing strategy. Upon the completion of my review, I presented the results of my analysis to the top management which showed that the firm’s strategy was exclusively focused on the use of traditional marketing methods. As a result, I developed a marketing strategy that incorporated new media strategies. Furthermore, I recommended the firm establish a LinkedIn profile and also improved their website. Additionally, I recommended that Ciredon develop their own safety films, blogs, podcasts and video games for training purposes. During this co-op, I demonstrated my ability to implement the skills that I have developed during my college course work.
I’m from Hamburg, NY which is a suburb of Buffalo, NY . I’m very passionate about music, film and video games. I write a blog called “The Metalizer” which covers Hard Rock and Heavy Metal music. On my blog I’ve written about albums, bands and other articles. My additional coursework at R.I.T. concentrated on Film Studies which enabled me to gain a better understanding of the film industry and effective marketing strategies in the US and abroad. Ever since I was young child, I’ve been fascinated with video games because of their competitive and strategic nature. I also enjoyed working with other players on a team in order to achieve goals and objectives. The skills and knowledge that I have learned in music, film and video games have helped me apply them to my work in new media marketing.
In conclusion, I would love to have a career that combines my passions and skills.
Hi I’m Jessica Gover and I am a fourth year marketing student at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). I promise I don’t cry all the time, just on days that end in the letter “y”. But really, if I were to pick a life motto, I would say that is is ” I am here for a good time, not a long time”. For me that means spending time doing the things I love. Not to mention bringing a positive attitude and humor to every situation.
Working as a Lax Bro
The end goal for me professionally, is to get involved in sports marketing and contribute to the expansion of underrepresented segments. My experience in sports marketing comes from my current position as the marketing manager at RIT SportsZone. I am responsible for leading a team working towards increasing the reach of social media platforms, as well as promoting the image of SportsZone Live. SportsZone covers over 23 individual collegiate athletics team. My passion for sports marketing comes from the fact I am an athlete myself, as part of the RIT Women’s Lacrosse Team. Through all of the broken bones, injuries and tears, I can with complete honesty, say it has been the best 3 years of my life so far. Being an athlete myself is what inspired me to pursue marketing in a sports related field. It is an area I feel passionate about and can relate the most to. Check out the links below to learn more about me and connect with me to start a conversation.
I recently decided to take a leap of faith and get outside my comfort zone by participating in the Living Through Sport program. At the end of June, I will be traveling to London, England to work an international sporting event as well as networking with industry professionals. For someone who frequently introduces themselves as a homebody, this is a big step for me. A typical Friday night for me usually involves watching Netflix. I’ve never been outside of the country on my own, so I’m scared and excited at the same time. I have always wanted to go abroad, and this is the first time I have actively pursued that goal.
In my time as an RIT new media marketing student I’ve done my best to get involved with a ton of the awesome opportunities here. Here’s a bit about the journey I’ve been on since I joined the RIT community.
The RIT Newsman
What I love about RIT is the diverse array of amazing events, clubs, and people. I’d often find myself having an absolute blast at an RIT event that I didn’t even know was happening until I walked outside my dorm room.
I wanted to find a way to bottle up those amazing experiences, in order to share them with my friends and family.
I’ve also loved YouTube since I was a kid, and after learning the basics of video production in my high school’s Broadcast Journalism club, I enlisted my friend Oscar to help me create a weekly entertainment news series about RIT.
In Fall 2017 Oscar and I partnered the series with the RIT Office of Undergraduate Admissions. We currently produce the series to advertise RIT to prospective students.
It’s been really powerful to hear people talk about how our series helped them choose RIT as the right fit for them.
In my third year as an RIT new media marketing student, after seeing the success of the RIT Newsman series, I became obsessed with how markets either embrace or reject new products and services. The success of a company is largely determined by how that company is perceived by the public.
I also became close friends with Zack Banack, a fellow student in the Saunders College of Business. Zack started at RIT as a computer security major, and had a lot of experience working for large companies doing freelance game design and development.
Zack and I developed an idea he was working on for a mobile application that facilitated the legacy preservation process that happens when an individual dies. We designed the app to help users store their best thoughts and memories, and send them to their friends and family when the user passes away.
Afterbox was featured on the Apple Music show Planet Of The Apps in Season 1, Episode 9. From that experience, in 2017 Zack and I were offered the opportunity to be apart of the Lightspeed Venture Partners Summer Fellowship program in Palo Alto, California. Here we learned the ins and outs of what it takes to make a startup successful.

What is Industrial Design?
Many people have asked me what industrial design is, surprisingly, even at career fairs. So here it is: Industrial design is a discipline known for creating products and systems that optimize function, value, and appearance. It has thrived in recent years—as the value of industrial design in cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovation efforts is recognized.
Aside from industrial design, I am passionate about learning other fields of design outside of my major, such as UI/UX, graphic, furniture, packaging design to broaden up the spectrum of my knowledge in design. As I have a minor in marketing, I foresee to integrate marketing methodology into a design to enhance the understanding of users interacting with the product from the beginning. Through my work experience in the professional industry, I have proven my organizational skills and design communication skills as well as improving team working skills. I am always open to learn and take advantage of every situation that I am thrown into and make the best out of it.

My name is Abigail Woodward. I’m at 4th year New Media Marketing Student. I’m currently a social media coordinator for auxiliary services for RIT.
I was born and raised in Rochester.
Which means two things:
1) I’ve had a garbage plate
2) I can drive in the snow.
I started my college career at Monroe Community College with an Associates in Business Administration. During that time at MCC my father was diagnosed with ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease. During that time, I wasn’t able to do a lot of extracurriculars during that time. I would split my time between my dying father, two part-time jobs, and school full time. From MCC I transferred to RIT, my dream school, and continued to make my father proud. He tried to hang on so he could see me graduate but, passed away March of ’17. Since then, I’ve been able to take time for myself to help re-fall in love with RIT and Rochester.
In New Media Marketing, you have to be flexible and learn as much as possible so during my co-ops.
In the summer of ’17 I was able to start as a social media intern for RIT’s business incubator, Venture Creations. It was a wonderful experience, I learned how to run a professional social media account and see development of businesses first hand. Also, I strengthened my Photoshop skills as well as using Newsletter software.
For Fall ’17 I was the retail marketing intern for Barnes & Noble @ RIT. At Venture Creations, we had start-ups from different areas, so focusing on one building such as Barnes & Noble @ RIT was a nice change of pace. At Barnes & Noble I worked on their social media as well as content creation and event planning.
What I’m Doing Now
Currently, I work with a great team of people at RIT’s Student Auxiliary Services. I help coordinate their social media accounts and help during events.
So In All I’ve Helped Run:
Venture Creations Incubator’s Twitter and Facebook
My name is Andrew Braeley. I’m completing my 5th year at RIT and graduating in May of 2018 with a degree in marketing. I plan to take the education I’ve received and use it to start my own restaurant.
The food industry is one that I have been a part of for a decade. My hope is to make it a life long career.
I was born and raised outside of Boston, MA where I lived with my mother and three siblings. This is where I first discovered my love for the culinary world. My first job was in a nursing home working as a chef.
At present, I’m residing in Brighton, NY with my fiancee who shares my love of cooking. After graduation we plan to return to the Boston area and hope to start our own restaurant.
In my free time, I like to cook and create my own recipes. I add them to my expanding book of specialties. I also enjoy spending time with my family, playing piano and guitar, as well as composing my own music.
In the near future I hope to run my own business in the culinary world. I’m confident I’ll find happiness and success with my education in business and my years of experience acquired working in different aspects of the food industry.
Thank you for visiting my page and I hope you find some entertainment in following my on my journey to the top of the culinary food chain. Keep in touch with me and my family and hopefully you will soon be directed to the front doors of my very own restaurant. If you love food then I assure you my journey will be one that you want to follow. Please connect with me on any of my other pages!

Christian Vanderhoef is a fourth year New Media Marketing and Economics double major at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) – Saunders College of Business & College of Liberal Arts. He believes that dreams and passions should be attainable by good people, and has a passion for helping individuals grow in order to reach those dreams using his knowledge of marketing and economics, soft skills, and creative thinking. Ultimately, people are the most important aspect of an organization, for without them, everything would be nothing.
Please, feel free to connect with Christian online because he loves meeting people, discussing topics, and learning new things.
Christian was born and raised in Farmingville, New York which is on Long Island. He has always been one to experience new things and explore his interests. From a young age, Christian participated in gymnastics, baseball, and basketball, but he always had a place for arts and crafts. When it came to his fifth grade yearbook, he wrote that he’d love to be a cartoonist when he grew up because he could create anything and shape an entire world of his own. He also learned at the end of elementary school that he had a knack for singing and wanted to pursue it further in middle school.
Although he was intending to focus more on music, Christian also played football leading into middle school, however, he didn’t enjoy it as much as he thought he might and left. When school started, Christian did what he intended to do and pursued singing throughout middle school. He joined choir and the school drama club. In his first year, Christian managed to get a solo in the show. As everyone may realize, middle school is a weird place and Christian’s “social circle” began to be established. By the end of middle school, his voice was going through a quick change and his singing was affected. He had a solo for the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA), but did so poorly due to frequent register changes that he was never given a score. In high school, Christian had no interest in further pursuing music.
In high school, he participated in FIRST Robotics for his freshman and sophomore year, but he realized that the organization at his school had politics that he was not interested in. He quit, got a crazy haircut, changed his style and joined track. In junior year, he was in cross country, swimming, track, student government, chess club, model united nations, and strategy and tactics club. He began to hangout less with the same people and more with new people. This allowed him to gather many social perspectives and relate more to many people. When he was meeting many new people, he came to the realization he wanted to be an engineer. To be more exact, he wanted to be an aviation and aerospace mechanical engineer. He then questioned this idea his senior year when his interest in arts and music reemerged.
When Christian got to RIT, he was already contemplating his major as Engineering Exploration, but he was uncertain as to what he’ll change to. After his first semester of exploring, he switched to Marketing. He learned so much about business that he was unaware of before and it interested him. He loved strategies, business plans, economics, and even accounting interested him. Overtime, he came to the conclusion he wanted to switch to New Media Marketing. Then, since the curriculum taught very little about resources and pricing, he chose to double major in Economics. With those, he can gather a deep understanding of resources and people while he works on his start-up: Canopy.

Hi! My name is Jane Brown. I’m a senior New Media Marketing student at RIT. I have minors in Advertising & PR and International Business. I’m currently the Marketing Assistant for RIT’s Department of Languages and Cultures where I’m creating a campaign for a new major. I’ve also done two digital marketing internships at a top agency in Syracuse.
Outside of classes and work, I love traveling and music. I studied abroad at RIT Croatia during the Spring 2017 semester. I became a Global Ambassador after returning to the US to help other students learn about international opportunities. I’ve also been in an all-female A Cappella group, RIT Vocal Accent, for four years and am serving as President. Additionally, I’ve been a member of Delta Sigma Pi, a professional business fraternity, since freshman year. Some of my favorite classes have included Wines of the World, Electronic Music Production, and Social Media Marketing!
My name is Blerta Imeri. I am studying Business Marketing and Business Management with an immersion in Advertising at Rochester Institute of Technology. I will be graduating with a Bachelors Degree in May of 2018.
I am a first generation from Kosovo. I came to America at the age of four and have resided in Syracuse, NY my whole life. I love the sport Lacrosse and I enjoy reading! I have been working as a sales adviser at Delta Sonic Car Wash for five years now. With my experience at Delta Sonic I have fallen in love with sales. I am an outgoing individual who loves to meet new people and enjoy some competition. My most notable skills are being organized and am great at communicating with many different types of people.
Over the summer of 17′ I worked with a company called Around Campus Group. They are an advertising college company that focuses on helping local business target to local college students. As an intern I attended a ten day long training program in North Carolina where I was awarded the MVP of my New York team. I was placed within the Cornell University community to sell print and digital advertising. Towards the end of the three month long internship as the sales team leader I took place number one for the New York region and number four out of the country for sales.
My experience this past summer has taught me many things about myself that I was not aware of. Such as the level of my commitment and hard work that I invested in order to place within the top five. It was a learning experience that I am very grateful for.

I’m a graduating New Media Marketing Major with an immersion in Music. I’ve loved my time at RIT and the fact that I am leaving is bittersweet. I’ve gained so many great skills here in my classes. Through those classes and my co-op experience I have transformed myself from a lazy freshman to a motivated candidate for the job market. In my final semester at RIT, I am especially excited to learn more about SEO during this class.
In January 2016 I landed an exciting co-op opportunity with Eastman Kodak Company here in Rochester. What started as a summer job turned into a 2-year long relationship in which I worked both full-time, and part-time while taking classes. My classes somewhat prepared me for the job, but I feel that I learned even more about marketing and simply working in a marketing position while I was there.
More recently and currently, I am a contracted WordPress developer for the local Rochester non-profit, Be UninTIMidated. Be UninTIMidated is dedicated to helping people with rare forms of appendix cancer, and raising awareness to gain ground for treatment.
More About Me & Links
Though currently based in Rochester, my home is in Burlington, Vermont, where I was born. Being from Vermont I love snowboarding, hiking, and rock climbing, among other outdoor activities. I played in the Vermont Youth Orchestra for 5 years, which helped grow my love for music. I love to write and produce music, and I have grown these skills through some courses at RIT such as Electronic Music Production. I had the pleasure of helping write and record music with a fellow RIT student for his video game, Apollon Blue. A few select pieces from the game can be listened to at the link below.
Apollon Jazz – My first try at making jazz music. I was very proud with the result and this ended up being the theme for the game.
My name is Shayne Mogilski, and I’m currently a third year New Media Marketing student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I’ve studied hard in classes to understand the material, and not just remember it. Classes such as Internet Marketing have really helped me understand New Media Marketing. RIT has also helped me grow with chances to lead. This includes being president of RIT’s Sports Enthusiasts Club, along with responsibilities for RIT’s Phi Sigma Pi chapter. Through the good and bad times, I would have to say that RIT has changed my life significantly in the last 3 years and I’m almost ready to reach the next chapter in my career. Speaking of which…
Over the past few years, I’ve gained business experience in many different forms. While I was a senior in high school, I created a business plan for Traverse Puzzle Hunts. Traverse Puzzle Hunts was designed to plan unique and well-detailed events at a low price. I’ve also been responsible for the marketing plan for a potential public electronic service known as TechHub. This business plan won the first annual best business plan competition at RIT, which was an incredible accomplishment in only my first year. Along with contributing to multiple other business plans, I’ve also worked as a New Media Specialist for Legacy Financial Planning. Legacy Financial Planning is respected throughout the financial community nationwide and are run by two of the most successful financial planners in the industry. I hope to only increase my experience with a paid Co-Op opportunity in the near future.
Hello Everyone, my name is Sheldon Ennis-Mitchell. I’m in my fifth year at the Rochester Institute of Technology, studying Management Information Systems, and minoring in Digital Business & Finance. Ultimately, my goal is to use my MIS degree to pursue a career in Data Analytics.
I am originally from Bridgeport, Connecticut – which is about a half hour north of the Bronx, NY. So coming to Rochester for school wasn’t much of an adjustment, though the weather here isn’t most ideal haha. Over my time here at RIT, I’ve looked to be involved and active in the Rochester community. I’ve served on executive boards for a number of clubs and organizations that are geared to promoting societal change. A Change albeit from academic excellence, professional networking, and community service. I am very passionate about the next chapter in my life once I graduate in May.
The next chapter… Analytics? Community Outreach?
Aside from pursuing a career in Data Analytics, I want to mentor young students toward a furthering their education and becoming leaders in the community. It is important that our current generation grows daily, while using that growth to lead and inspire future generations to do the same. I know is a tremendously tall task, with a lack of funding and support for education and extra curricular programs. But my childhood friends and I hope to start an inner city Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. A program in which graduates of the Bridgeport Public School System can come together and create programs and initiatives that can not only encourage an avenue for students to succeed academically, but to find a inner passion and have the necessary resources to pursue that passion.

My name is Lisa Hornak and I am originally from Houston, PA. Currently, I am a third-year student at Rochester Institute of Technology. I chose to major in Marketing with a Supply Chain Management minor. Finally, I am a member of the Women’s Rugby team at RIT and the DECA club at RIT.
In the future, I plan to work in the sports marketing or marketing analytics industry. Even though I prefer to stay in the Rochester area, which I now consider it to be home, I am always up for an adventure when a good opportunity opens up.

If you can’t run, walk, or crawl then I guess you end up crutching like me. Right now I am on crutches for the next 6+ weeks with a cracked fibula. Being on crutches has definitely been an eye-opening experience in snowy Rochester to the accessibility challenges of going to a large university.
As my journey through college is starting to near the end, I am currently searching for a marketing co-op for this summer. By filling out hundreds of applications and obsessively checking various job sites the past few months I learned a lot. Therefore, I am more cognizant of what jobs are out there and how my interests match up.

Lisa Hornak Injury Update [ 3/27/18]
Four x-rays later, I am off crutches and in an air cast. Now, I will wear the “walking boot” another month followed by physical therapy. I am looking forward to when I can return to my active lifestyle and getting back into my gym routine.
I’m a 4th year New Media Marketing major at Rochester Institute of Technology. I’ll be graduating May 2018 with my B.S. degree in Business Administration.
I’m an aspiring digital marketer who wishes to cross into the healthcare industry. At this moment you may be asking yourself, of all industries why the healthcare industry? The truth is, I really like helping people. If I had the patience and passion for it I probably would have become a doctor. But, here I am telling you why I decided to go to business school. The world of business and healthcare at times can seem cold and uncaring. I hope to show all who come in contact with my work, there is a marketer out there who has their best interest at heart.
If you couldn’t tell from the previous paragraph I am a people person. I love to make people forget about their problems and worries. When I was 17 years old I began working in the Geriatrics & Palliative Care department at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield. Our work mainly focuses on progressing the MOLST program in New York State. The MOLST program is a medical order form that tells others the patient’s medical orders for life-sustaining treatment. All health care professionals must follow these medical orders as the patient moves from one location to another, unless a physician examines the patients, reviews the orders, and changes them. Everyone assumes that when it’s there time to “kick the bucket” they can do so as they please. That’s not true in NYS, if you don’t have medial orders signed by a physician that align with your wishes you can end up dying in a place you may not have wanted to be. I’m doing all that I can to assist in marketing the MOLST form to the public, so pretty soon it will not be a reality for many elderly people.
Marketing Plans for The Future…
Currently, I plan to attend Rochester Institute of Technology, or the University of Rochester for my Master of Business Administration with concentrations in Marketing and Healthcare. I plan to start my masters program 6 months – 1 year after graduating in May.
My name is Matthew Barry and I am a third year student majoring in Game Design & Development. I am pursuing a minor in both Business Administration and Marketing as well as an immersion in Digital Literature and Comparative Media. The plan is to graduate in the Spring of 2019 with all of the above completed.
When it comes to life outside of school, I am also a very busy person. I currently have 3 different jobs on campus and am an ambassador for my program. Also, I am working on a few projects outside of school in hopes to be able to publish them on my own one day. I love to play sports and am currently on a co-ed soccer team with some of my friends on campus.
I grew up in a small town 2 hours south of Rochester called Marathon. My graduating class was around 65 students and that was considered large to give you an idea of what I mean by small. Furthermore, I grew up playing soccer and spent a large part of my life involved in various clubs, camps and pick up games. The school is super into soccer and does well in the state tournament every year so soccer has always been a big part of my life.
I choose Game Design & Development as my focus at RIT for a few reasons. Firstly, I really enjoy programming and computer science / engineering, but CS is a little too bland for me. I enjoy action and memorable experiences. Interactive media I think is that bridge between the two which is why I ended up where I am today.
