What drew you to this position at Cognosante? I was drawn to this position as a Marketing Analyst at Cognosante because I wanted to explore whether marketing is a field I want to enter after college. I was looking for real-world experience in marketing and had an interest in healthcare IT, so I felt like Cognosante was a good company for me.
