Michele Judkins, New Media Marketing

Me, completely lost in the city of Venice and very happy about it…

Hey there, I’m Michele! Full disclosure, I always feel slightly awkward writing about myself so let’s go ahead and dive right in…

I began my academic journey pursuing a psychology degree at MCC, but quickly realized I had a knack for marketing, and have since turned psychology into an immersion. I started my New Media Marketing degree at RIT about a year ago and look forward to making these, “apply for graduation” emails into a reality this fall of 2019. I’ve impressed myself by remaining on Dean’s List with a massive credit load every semester and working close to full time. It’s all about surprising yourself with strengths you didn’t know you had.

The stars aligned during my second semester and I found myself completing my co-op requirement at a startup digital marketing company, created by none other than an RIT alumni. I’ve been learning from a founder that cares deeply for our clients and does not believe in delivering a sub-par product. She sets high standards for digital marketing and I feel grateful to be learning from a master of the craft, while simultaneously attending a highly regarded university–packing my brains with as much knowledge as possible!

I choose New Media Marketing for the opportunity to do a bit more micro writing and to explore the visually creative avenues built in, such as creating a stunning UI or engaging display ads. I love diving into Google Analytics to see what’s working and what needs improvement. In the age of instant gratification, we get to see the fruits of our labor quite fast–one small bonus for our distraction tortured generation.

Come graduation this Fall of 2019, I hope to have improved user experiences through my work, and to have discovered as many ways as possible to report competitive marketing gains to clients.

A heftier goal of mine is to do some lengthier writing one day, it would be an absolute dream to write a sci-fi series.

That’s about all, folks! Most of my work experience is for you to find out on your own. If interested, check out my Resume and LinkedIn.

Oluwatosin Arowosola

Digital Brand Manager

Hey guys! My name is Oluwatosin Arowosola. Too long, but you can call me Tosin (toe-sin). I have a BSc in Mass Communication from University of Lagos, Nigeria and currently a graduate student at RIT studying communications and media technology.

Let me take you on a journey about my passion…

I have a great interest in investigating brand communication, consumer engagement/behavior, digital media, and marketing/ advertisement. As an international student, I strive to look for opportunities that enable me acquire experiences in industries that are related to my field.

A philosophy I live by is

“Always know what to say, when to say it, how to say it, and most importantly to whom it should be said”.

Some Experiences

One of my most memorable experiences was an interview with Erin Foster, former director of marketing communications, Eastman Kodak. This was an opportunity for me to tap into her experience and expertise to learn about some real challenges, and how it was tackled. Watch here.

The Empty Hanger TV: An engaging multimedia project, that shows how and why clothes matter. Working on this project, helped me learn so much about the American market and also to see the difference, if any, in how digital marketing works or how it affects the target audience. I was able to see how a new business can use the new media to get a head start in the market. My research was focused on; management research tools, social platform scheduling, content type per platform and so on.

My most recent experience comes from Children Awaiting Parent (CAP). A non-profit organization, dedicated to finding adoptive families for waiting children. Every brand wants to have that online presence. My major role at CAP as a brand manager was to revamp the online presence, by creating campaigns that help to increase the brand’s identity. Some of the things I did included, but weren’t limited to, marketing campaigns, implementation plan, content creation, graphic design, website management and social media management.

The most interesting aspect of my role at CAP was the graphics design aspect. It was a challenge, but an exciting one which I am proud of myself for taking on. See, I had little to no idea on graphics design, but I basically taught myself how to use the available design software as it was a necessary tool to help me produce amazing results in my role as a brand manager.

I’m eager to continue learning and positioning myself in industries I can add value to.

Leah Baratz – Aspiring Digital Marketer

Hello! My name is Leah and I am an MBA student at Rochester Institute of Technology. I was born and raised in Westchester, New York. I recently graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Business Economics from the State University of New York, College at Oneonta.

After graduation, I hope to obtain a job within the digital marketing industry. During my undergraduate career I studied with a Marketing concentration, and at RIT, my concentration is in Digital Marketing. I’ve always found it fascinating how marketing communications can significantly affect consumers buying behaviors. Although most people find it creepy how personal user data is used to tailor their ads, I find it interesting! It’s crazy how accurate marketers get to predicting the products we want, and then how well they are at executing tailored ads to our preferences.

As a recent graduate, all of my experience comes from internships and part-time jobs. For three semesters, I was a social media intern at my college’s Alumni Association. I planned posts, wrote copy, produced content, and created marketing plans. Social media is certainly a crucial component in digital marketing, and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to get experience with it. My other internship was at the New York Small Business Development Center. I worked with local business owners to assist with starting or growing their businesses whether it be creating financial proformas, giving marketing advice, or helping them conduct research. The job was similar to what I’ll be doing in the future with a marketing agency, as each client was in business in different sectors.

Delta Sigma Pi Initiation Day December 2017

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.

About Me

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.

Future Aspirations

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.

Thank you for your time, I appreciate it.

My story – RIT New Media Marketing Student

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

the_RIT_newsman_photo

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.

You can check out The RIT Newsman here!

Afterbox

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.

Backstory

Elementary School

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.

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.

High School

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.

Today

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.

Michael Titcomb

Hi! I’m Michael Titcomb.

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.

Work Experience

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.

Shayne Mogilski, Please Hire Me

Hello

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…

Business Experience

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 HuntsTraverse 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.

Shakira K. Jackson, Digital Marketer with a Heart of Gold!

Hi, I’m Kira Jackson.

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.

About Me…

Shakira K. Jackson New Media Marketing Student, soon to be graduate from Rochester Institute of Technology.
Shakira k. Jackson

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.

My passion…

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.

Join my network!

Matthew Missert

Introduction:
Hi! the name’s Matt. I’m 4th year undergrad student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I’m finishing up my degree in New Media Marketing (fancy title for marketing with a technical focus) paired with a dual minor in International Business and Communications.
I’ve spent time working in the B2B field, but most of my education has centered around the consumer market. With the work I’ve done through RIT these past 4 years, I’m aiming towards working in the international marketing industry, working to introduce products and experiences to new emerging markets around the globe. (or across the world, if you know… flat earth and all.)

I was born in Buffalo NY and briefly lived in Hamburg NY before moving to Laconia New Hampshire around 2001. I came to RIT largely for the co-op program.
Growing up in New Hampshire, I’ve adopted a strong passion for being outdoors. You can find me hiking and fishing in the summer and snowboarding or skating in the winter.

My Future:

I’ve been struggling with answering the “what are your plans after graduation” question for some time now and to be honest I still don’t know what I want to do. I plan on moving back to New England, closer to Boston in order to join the professional world, but at the same time I’m drawn to the idea of packing a bag and traveling as much as I can before my student loan payments start to kick in.

Get to Know Me!

I’m on all social media platforms, and have my own website too!

Kysa – Social Media Specialist

All About Kysa

Portrait of Kysa W
Kysa Willemsen – New Media Marketing

From a small town in Ontario, Canada named Forest, Kysa Willemsen is in her fourth year at the Rochester Institute of Technology. She is studying new media marketing with a minor in advertising and public relations. She will be graduating with a bachelor’s degree in May of 2018.

Life as a Student Athlete

During Kysa’s first semester at RIT she decided to try a new sport. That is when she became a member of the RIT crew team. Since joining she has been a rower and coxswain for both the women’s and men’s teams. Practices at 6AM each morning have helped her stay on top of her studies. Even finding ways to prioritize time management when she is travelling for races. Balancing school, sports, work and a social life has proven to be difficult but she wouldn’t want to change this experience for the world. Overall, being a student athlete has taught Kysa control, motivation and flexibility.

Studying Abroad

Kysa at Big Ben
Kysa Abroad in London, England

In the spring of her third year at RIT Kysa studied in London, England at the London South Bank University. She embraced opportunities to travel and learn from cultures all around Europe. Her favourite was to enjoy locations that were off the beaten path rather than tourist-targeted locations. Unlike the American school system, academics in England were set up differently. Each course was weighted mostly on one exam or paper therefore it highlighted the fact that second-chances aren’t always available.

In the “Real World”

Since 2014 Kysa has gained experience with Sunripe Freshmarket. She helped introduce social media and online communications into the company’s marketing. In December of 2014 she ran the company’s first online promotion. This was for a buy 1 get 1 free event they hold yearly. This event was only advertised with traditional marketing platforms prior to that year. During the event that December Sunripe saw a large increase in year over year sales at a fraction of their previous marketing costs. Today, Kysa continues to manage all of Sunripe’s online communications through Facebook, Instagram, website and email. This includes promoting products and events, answering consumer questions, creating content and more. All from anywhere in the world.

Sundy He: Graduating New Media Marketing Student

Hello! My name is Sundy, and I’m a New Media Marketing student at RIT, preparing to graduate in May 2018.

My passion in new media marketing

Starting my college career undeclared allowed me to discover what I love to do. There is nothing better than being able to help someone, no matter how big or small. Marketing allows me to be creative in how I can help others find what they need. The digital world gives businesses more of a chance to learn about their consumers just as much as consumers can continue to learn about them. As a digital marketer, I strive to help businesses help their consumers through creation and curation.

I grew to love new media marketing even more as I gained more experience. I worked as an SEO Intern at LittleThings Inc, and helped manage social media for RIT’s Office of Career Services.

Find out more on Sundy He’s resume and connect with me on Sundy He’s LinkedIn profile.

More than just marketing

Aside from my passion for marketing, I love to create.Sundy He New Media Marketing student

I enjoy writing. I keep my own blog called A Grey Sunday, exploring my other passion for makeup and fashion. My Instagram @sundyheNY hosts a variety of makeup posts, with the occasional food photo because I also love food in (almost) any way, shape, or form.

I have also written for LittleThings.com, which also served to expand my skills in SEO writing. My most successful piece was about “coconut oil for acne scars,” which you can see on page 1 of the Google and Bing results! Check out my content on the Sundy He LittleThings author page.

I play around with web development here and there based on what I have learned through my coursework and in my spare time. You can see a sample of my work on Sundy’s RIT webpage.

My career goals

After graduation, I hope to continue working in SEO or social media, but I am always looking to learn more about digital marketing and advertising. I am willing to take risks and push myself to do more than I think I can do so I can become a better marketer than I was before. I want to help businesses grow, develop stronger relationships with customers, and bring more ideas to life.

About

I am a content marketer and brand strategist graduating with a degree in Digital Marketing from Rochester Institute of Technology in May 2018. A balanced left and right-brain thinker, I am constantly testing, learning and optimizing, all while applying a refined creative edge.

As a content marketer, I am a proactive agent in the areas of search engine marketing, social media, branding, content strategy, and paid advertising, I consistently stay on top of trends in the world of content marketing with an intense personal interest in food and fashion culture.

I excel at writing compelling stories, employing empathy to understand audiences, and have a penchant for all things analytical. I am adept at leading, executing and tracking the performance of demand generation campaigns across various social platforms.

Story

Hailing from Philly, I was raised by a kind, hardworking German father and a no-nonsense, but incredibly selfless, Chinese mother from who I’ve absorbed both a driven and empathic mindset.

My focus as a professional, and as a person, stems from my love of community. If I’ve learned anything throughout my college career and work experience, it’s that one must be relentless and in constant pursuit of improvement, all while continually learning and growing. In this vein, I’ve taken on freelance work as a content marketer, becoming ingrained in the surrounding community and extending what I’ve learned in the classroom into the real world.

As the Program Director for WITR 89.7, an FM radio station serving the greater Rochester area, I work alongside a team of multi-talented DJs and producers to bring lesser known music to the community.

WITR 89.7 Apple Picking
Just some radio kids apple picking.

Most recently, I’ve been assisting AVVINO, a local, high-end, contemporary restaurant with their marketing, web presence and social media, redesigning their website and converting web traffic into dinner reservations. This was a business I loved from the first water glass I filled, to the last table I wiped down. I feel fortunate that I can apply my knowledge as a digital marketer to positively impact the lives of everyone working there. 

Avvino
Avvino!


To find work in a setting that promotes constant collaboration and open communication is a goal of mine. In a place like that, I can focus on growing and leading. I can work harder, better, and feel good about it. 

I am always on the lookout for additional freelance opportunities to help grow small businesses, individual brands, and everything in between.

I’m currently on the job hunt, searching for a full-time digital marketing position.
