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!

How To Be A Hazard. To, uh, Yourself.

I recently started living by myself. People say that when you start living by yourself, you discover new things about yourself, like a whole wave of realizations, deep intellectual reflections etc.

Nope. Apparently THAT isn’t going to be my thing.

I seem to have a talent in finding new ways to be a hazard. To literally the only person in the house – Me.

As always, I decided to jot down my list of ‘How To Be A Hazard. To Yourself.’

Disclaimer: Imitating instances mentioned in this post may induce some serious injuries. Do not try at home. Subject has already done that for you. 

  1. Leave Sharp Objects Lying Around

    People who know me, know that I’m hopelessly absent-minded. Below are pictures of an incident that actually occurred. Uh, yes, I have managed to become a lot more responsible after that. Uh no, it hasn’t repeated. *looking up at the sky*

    Please don’t tell my mom. Thanks.

    Doing some cool stuff ‘cuz joblessness
    A rare picture of subject doing work
    peek-a-boo!

    Subject MAY have sat on it. That’s confidential information.
  2. Play ‘Live-Life-Dangerously’ Kind-of Games

    Okay I really love this one game I invented.
    *looks at mom’s death stare*
    Okay, um, this game is not cool. I repeat. Not cool at all.
    *sheepish grin*
    So what you have to do is try to cut vegetables with your weaker hand. You keep trying to decrease your cutting time as the days go by.
    Not that I have tried doing this multiple times, of course.
    Following are pictures of a random subject attempting to play the game.
    (mom, I swear, that isn’t me!)

    Subject is excited to cut with her left hand!
    I doubt subject focused this much in her engineering.
    Subject may be rethinking life decisions.

    Well, I hope you guys liked my post!

    Cheers,

I am Vinny Alese?

Hi I’m Vinny Alese?
“If you know this picture is me, no need to read, just look at my stylish resume and perfect LinkedIn profile.” -Vinny Alese

If you don’t know me, kudos to you for clicking the link you adventurer you. Just this Spring I graduated from SUNY Geneseo with a B.S. in Business Administration. I decided to go on with school and enrolled in the RIT 4+1 MBA program. Meaning, if you click on the links (ResumeLinkedIn) I will pass my internet marketing class and graduate with my MBA in one year.

Originally from Long Island, I now live in Rochester just off Park Ave and commute to RIT and my part time job at REDCOM. I have absolutely no complaints about the area. There is always something to do or somewhere to go (if I’m not stuck at the kitchen table reading the third Harvard Business Review case of the day).

Grad Life

Speaking of cases, I never had to do a single one for undergrad. For my Geneseo friends, a case is pretty much what it sounds like- a nice long paper about a company that found itself in a bad situation. The cases typically end unresolved and we are tasked to use evidence from the case to determine the best course of action.

I have a love hate relationship with case studies. I love that they provide a real problem and an inside look at what was going on at a company. I also love that they make you find creative solutions and build up problem solving skills, but I hate that just about every class assigns two or three a week. There just isn’t enough daylight. Luckily, I figured out I only need about two hours of sleep, a 20 minute mid-day nap, and 24oz of coffee to function. I recommend researching alternative sleep cycles if you plan on going for your masters and work, I try to use a trimmed down version of the biphasic sleep cycle.

That’s it for now! Again, please check out my resume andLinkedIn page so I don’t fail! Also feel free to drop me a comment below on what you think about the resume and any suggestions you have.

Novel Outline in 5 Easy Steps

Novel OutlineWriting a fiction novel can be a rather daunting process.  However, by following these five simple steps you will be well on your way to completing a novel of your own.  The steps may vary in length, but each step will add future value to your novel, and will limit the amount of large scale edits needed during latter steps in the fiction writing process.

  • Step One:  It is likely that you have already thought about the topic of your novel.  Now it is time to write all of this world building information down in a single document, for consistence purposes.
  • Step Two:  Identify the audience of your novel.  Knowing who your novel is aimed toward will help to determine what content is appropriate to the demographic.
  • Step Three:  Develop a one paragraph summary of your entire novel.  Focus on the beginning, climax and ending of the overall story.  Then make a list of 3-5 important events that were mentioned in the one paragraph summary.
  • Step Four:  Start listing the events that connect all of the major moments in the novel that were listed in your original 3-5 novel events, from step three.
  • Step Five:  Now you will start creating character profiles for all the characters in your book.  One profile is needed for every character that has significance in your novel.  This is a rather long step in the pursuit of creating a marketable book, but in the end it will lead to a better overall novel.  A well written novel needs meaningful characters to drive the story forward.

Once all of these steps are complete then you should have everything you need to get started on your novel.  So, find a quiet place and enjoy the novel writing process.
