About Molly

I do most of the updating on our Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, but this blog will give everyone at Star Choice the opportunity to keep our members updated and connected from their perspectives-everyone from Marketing to our IT department!

With that being said, I will start of by telling you a little bit about myself.

My name is Molly McCurdy and I am originally from Hastings, MN. I am a recent graduate of Winona State University (May 2011-its been a year already, holy cow!) and I graduated with a degree in Advertising & Marketing.  Right after college I found it very hard to be considered for any marketing or advertising positions. Regardless of my degree and knowledge of the field, without any experience your resume seems to go straight to the bottom of the pile. (Note to any new grads or college students...if you get the opportunity to do an internship, don't pass it up!)

Before I accepted the Marketing Coordinator position here at Star Choice Credit Union I worked for a temporary and permanent placement agency in downtown Minneapolis. I applied to the temp agency hoping they would place me in a position, and they ended up hiring me on internally which was great...for a little while! Although I didn't necessarily mind the position, over time I knew it wasn't what I wanted long-term. I wanted something I was more passionate about and something that I could use my degree in, so I started searching for Marketing positions around the Twin Cities and stumbled across this Marketing Coordinator position. I was so ready to start my career and prove myself, and despite my lack of "real world" experience, they thought I would be a great fit and offered me the position...which I am extremely grateful for!

If you don't already know the employee's of Star Choice, let me tell you that it didn't take long before I felt right at home! Shortly after my first week here, I was just starting to get into the swing of things and our President, Dan, was giving me a hard time, telling me it was about time I got some work done around here! I knew then that this was the perfect fit for me ;o)

So there is a little bit of information about my background and how I ended up at Star Choice! When I'm not working, I love being outside, spending time with my family, my boyfriend, Eric, and of course...my Golden Retriever, Dakota! If you want to know anything else, just ask!
