Marketing

Age: 31
Hometown: Appleton Current Residence: Appleton
Attended FVTC: 2011 through 2013

Why did you choose the Marketing program?
When I was younger I used to be on “street teams” for various bands to help get the word out about upcoming shows. So from a young age, I was always interested in promotions and marketing.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?
I’m learning that marketing goes beyond just the company you are working for. Marketing is also about personal marketing and how you position yourself for success.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?
I had heard Fox Valley Technical College was the premier college in northeast Wisconsin, and after attending for two years I have to say that I agree. It has opened many doors for me and has enabled me to meet many great people at the college as well as in the community.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
I’d like to work at a radio station, or possibly a position in the media.
