Hi everyone! My name is Kathleen Hagelberger and I am a fourth-year New Media Marketing and MIS double major at Rochester Institute of Technology, Saunders College of Business. I am part of the Lambda class of Delta Sigma Pi - Epsilon Lambda Chapter.
I am currently on my second co-op working at TJX as a Data Operations Analyst in Boston, Massachusetts. TJX is a multinational off-price department store corporation with several different retail stores under their umbrella such as TJ Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, and HomeSense to name a few. Their headquarter is located just outside Boston in Framingham, Massachusetts.
I am part of the Global Sourcing Services Department under Merchandising, working on wide variety of projects and reports. My primary role as the Data Operations Analyst is to work closely with the Global Buying Offices to resolve any ticketing issues and lead time errors with the shipment of goods overseas. I also work with IT to continuously improve workflow processes for greater efficiency. Saunders has provided me with excellent Microsoft Excel, Access and Visio skills, which have been incredibly useful during this co-op.
