Stevens Cooperative Education Profiles - Nick Marzorati
December 21, 2009
Nick Marzorati is a current undergraduate Mechanical Engineering student who plans on achieving his BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering/Nanotechnology by 2011. He is an active member of the Stevens Cooperative Education (Co-op) program and feels the experience has been invaluable in his career development.
His involvement with the Co-op began during one of Stevens Interview days presented on campus where he met with the pharmaceutical company Shering-Plough (who was recently purchased by Merck). Soon after he was contacted regarding a follow up interview and was hired as an integral part of the Shering-Plough team.
Nick describes the many benefits of Co-op involvement as including a substantial amount of real world experience that is impossible to replicate in the classroom. “I’ve had over 15 interviews with professional representatives, and 6 onsite interviews.” He goes on to say, “you get exposure to a wide variety of job tasks and on-the-job training, resume experience, plus the ability to truly understand how a business is run, how to prioritize work tasks, deadlines, teamwork and business ethics.”
For the opportunity to improve your real world business and interview skills, build your resume and get a foot in the door with international companies, contact the Co-op office today!
