"I’m an Interactive Designer with uTest in Boston; I design and develop webpages, interactive tools, rich media and a T-Shirt or two for a rising tech startup. I started as a marketing intern when I graduated, joined full-time as a marketing associate, narrowed my scope to design and worked with my team to create my current role. Startup culture sucked me in – pick your hours, make your own decisions, and leave your handprint on a company that will be huge if you and your team push and support each other.
Finding a job after graduating from the CMD program was practically muscle-memory: The networking skills, organizational awareness and early depth of understanding about the marketing function of a company were visibly impressive to recruiters. Being able to help my company with a variety of tasks and see the common North Star between them was a direct result of the guidance and brilliance of the CMD faculty."
