My name is Aaron Gomez. I am a junior at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) where I am studying New Media Marketing and Management Information Systems. I started college looking to learn digital marketing and found I enjoyed the technology side so much I added MIS as a second major.
Besides classes, I am involved on campus with the Business and Technology Professionals club at RIT. I served first as the communications chair where I sent weekly email updates, maintained the social media accounts, and reached out to sponsors and guest speakers. I am now a project manager leading front-end website development for club projects.
I spent my last summer participating in the Saunders Startup Program. I conducted market research interviews and developed the business plan.
Looking ahead, I have another co-op and year of college before graduation. I am considering career paths that align with both majors with possible roles including becoming a digital marketing specialist or business analyst.
