Mark Corsillo - Class of 2009
Why did you choose this major, and does/did it seem like the right major for you? Why?
It really appealed to me as a different approach to marketing, which was what I hoped to do at the time.
Why did you choose NU? Was/is this the right school for you?
Frankly, the financial package NU offered was more attractive than other schools, and the co-op program was a great feature not shared by the other schools I'd applied to.
How many co-ops have you completed?
I completed 1 co-op.
Can you list the companies and give a quick synopsis of what you did?
I was a Publicity and Promotions Assistant at Allied Integrated Marketing. I managed an inventory of press and promotional materials, organized and ran promotional events, and communicated press mentions to the studios daily.
If you participated in co-op, what were the highlights/great learning opportunities you gained?
I learned a lot about the politics of working in an office.
Have you Graduated from NU?
Yep, I graduated in 2009 and spent a year and a half doing IT and Marketing at Boloco. Eventually I decided to go for a role that was specifically IT, and I was able to get in touch with someone at CSN Stores via the Co-Op Office and now work on the IT Helpdesk at a growing e-commerce company.
