Northeastern University

Mark Corsillo - Class of 2009

Noelle Minter

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.
