CoSMOcast

By NU CoSMO
CoSMO is a computer science mentorship organization at Northeastern University, and we were thinking, "Hey. How is virtual and distanced learning going to impact students' needs for mentorship and community, and how can we fill those gaps without our usual events?" CoSMOcast will feature industry members, faculty, students leaders and alumni to bring you conversations on personal growth, tech culture, computer science research, imposter syndrome, what Covid-19 means for collaborative work and hackathons, starting a new project, changing majors, changing entire career paths, life after Northeas

Ep. 3: Meet Josh and Chris
In this episode, we sit down with Josh Spicer and Chris Gomes, two Northeastern alum and former CoSMO e-board members. We talk about what it's like working full-time, remotely, and the differences between being a full-fledged employee versus a co-op or intern. We also talk about the inception of CoSMO, it's original purpose and vision and how that has shifted and evolved into what CoSMO is now.

Ep. 0: Meet Our E-Board
In this episode, we got together with the rest of the CoSMO e-board, president Katie Busemeyer and mentorship chair Anusha Arora, and talked about our personal journeys with computer science. We'll hear about some personal experiences with mentors, highlight some workplace red flags, and dispel some myths about computer science, your adult coworkers, and finding your passion. We wrap up by discussing our non-CS dream jobs, bond over baking and philosophy, and reminisce on the highs and lows of our freshmen years.
