Inside Marketing as a major at Bentley

What is your major and how did you decide on your major at Bentley?

I decided on my major, Marketing, by evaluating my skills and interests after freshmen year. After completing the first level of General Business (Accounting and Finance) I wasn’t sure if my passion was in either of the two subjects. Yet, after finishing the semester of GB 214 (Marketing and Operations), I knew it was exactly what I wanted to do. I was excited to go to …

You’ll never know if you never ask!

Do you have any advice or words of wisdom?

Ask. For. Advice. I haven’t met a single person who would turn me down yet, and you will find it in the most unlikely of places. Sometimes it just takes one phone call to the general phone line of a company or an email to the only person you might know there.

Key steps to take and qualities to have when finding an internship/job!

What steps have you taken to get to where you are today?

Not really sure how to answer this question because there are so many! I’d say one of the big ones would be signing up for job alerts and such. You don’t have to necessarily be looking for a job at that moment to sign up and it’s just an email. I remember seeing the position posted somewhere and when I thought more on Reebok and doing Social Media …

How did I choose Marketing as a major?

What is your major and how did you decide on your major at Bentley?

I like when answers aren’t necessarily cut and dry, and I like having the opportunity to solve a problem in a way that others hadn’t thought about.
What has been your favorite …
