) Ü Ü Ü Ü Ü Ü Ü Ü Ü ’ › : I’ve wanted to come to Hofstra since I was a little
kid. I guess I was mesmerized by the stadium, and my high school used to do a lot of things
here, you know, we had a good lacrosse program and the championship was always played here,
and I don’t know I was just mesmerized, I just liked Hofstra. I always had a big interest
in computers, but I also loved business, I loved management and things like that. I didn’t
want to be pigeon holed into just doing computers, so I figured BCIS would be perfect for me.
I love the social aspect of between classes, being able to walk into the cafeteria and
know that a bunch of my friends are going to be there and, you know, just have people
to hang out with all the time. The biggest thing I realized in college, I don’t know
if it’s all colleges, but definitely at Hofstra, a lot of my professors were very
hand-off, they didn’t micromanage you. They didn’t go “Did you do your homework? Did
you write that paper? You know, paper’s due next week.” It was more like “Here’s
your assignment. Do it or don’t do it, it’s up to you. I’m not going to be on your case,
you just do it.” And that’s very similar to what it’s like in my field. I have projects
and there’s nobody standing over my shoulder saying, you know, “You have to work for
x amount of hours and take an hour lunch break at 12.” My job is not like that. It’s
more like “Here’s what you need to get done. Get it done as quickly and as high quality
as you can.” I work in marketing now in a commercial bank called State Bank of Long
Island. I do a lot of product development and a lot of product roll outs, and I support
the roll outs with ed. marketing and advertizing. I also do a lot of data analysis or market
research, which is where the BCIS comes in handy because I deal with a lot of numbers,
statistics, and things like that. I do get to do some graphic design and work on advertising
campaigns and things like that, you know. Writing ads and things like that and that’s
very exciting to me, to be able to be creative in a corporate setting. I really like the
excitement of being able to solve puzzles, and that’s what I do with my data analysis
and market research. I like being able to be the guy that has the answers, that people
are looking for. When I was in elementary school, they asked us, “Put what you want
to be when you grow up.” And most people said president, fireman, doctor, lawyer. I
was the only person who said rock star, and I was ten years old. And I’ll always remember
that. Even back then, I was just drawn to it. I was just drawn to the whole idea of
playing music, being on stage, travelling, the whole thing, it just fit my personality
perfectly. I got a few of my friends together, people that played instruments, and put together
a band, and it started off as just something to do for fun, and then we got good, and then
we were like “Oh, wait a second, we can do more with this.” It’s not an event
or a part of the day that’s really great about being on the road or that’s really
exciting, it’s the overall vibe of why you’re there. Just the newness every day, every morning
you wake up and it’s just a clean slate and there’s just all new things to discover.
And I like being able to create something and then see it transfer to other people and
have it mean something to them. And being on stage and seeing people singing along to
the song that I wrote is the most amazing feeling in the world. I balance the bank and
the band mostly by not sleeping very often because they both take up a lot of my time.
I just make sure that when I walk into the bank, I’m in banker mode and I’m focusing
on what I need to do there. And the second I step out of the bank and I step into the
studio, I’m in musician mode and that’s what I focus on. I learned early on how to
flip the switch back and forth. The best advice I ever received from a professor was from
a management professor here. And he pretty much talked to us and explained to us that
it’s not about having straight As, it’s not about being a bookworm, it’s not about
studying hard or working hard, it’s about being ambitious and having a passion for what
you do, and if you really want something bad enough you can do anything. And he pretty
much said that everybody has their strengths and weaknesses. You have to find your strengths
and capitalize on them and pretty much hide your weaknesses.
