The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So I'm gonna be talking a little bit about what it's like to be a business major with the discipline and marketing. If you're familiar with my channel, I'm currently a junior, so I'm officially in My marketing class is I'm being exposed to like applying for internships, learning what they want, Lenny, what they don't want this is honestly, like my prime of my major, Which is kind of what inspired me to make the video, because I kind of feel like you guys would be interested in this. I'm pretty sure the major classes for marketing majors will not be much different, just depending on with school Eagle, too. You know, there could be different names, of course, different options of marketing classes or just very fine little changes. For the most part, I'm going to just kind of, like get into my experience as a marketing major and just some tips advice, some guidance. I've taken finance the basic marketing like core class I take in management, basic management, accounting, basic accounting, consumer behavior, which is a form of a marketing class. I'm glad my school required that we take it because no matter what you do, especially with a major like marketing, which I'm gonna get into it a little bit. This major is so broad. And so a lot of times as a marketing major, you may get a job and yeah, you're working on the cool part of marketing, which is, like, you know, digital marketing analytics surveys, you know, designing. There's gonna be times that as a marketer you're gonna be expected to know how to do other things. So not moving on into kind of like what it means to be a marketing major and why I chose that major so personally for me. I was kind of between administration, management and marketing. I think at this point I changed my major either to work three times, and I'm finally solidified as a marketing major. Um, I will say that for me, marketing is more than just, you know, designing a post that we're taking a survey, which a lot of people think is just like the Corps. Basic marketing and a lot of us do marketing every day and don't necessarily go to school. Promoting a party on Instagram that is marketing if you work for a job where you have to sell a product that is marketing if you're going outside and you're taking surveys because I don't know if you guys ever been the mall. Sometimes people in the mall will, like, come up to ask you Hey, do you mind taking a survey that's marketing. So a lot of people who don't understand what really goes into marketing, and that's what kind of drawing my interest to it. I still have the interest in taking an administrative position, especially because I plan to run my own business one day and I want to be able to have the qualifications that's meet it and to just take certain classes to just brought in my knowledge what interested me mainly in marketing, which made me kind of want to do it at my major. Marketing is one of the fastest growing majors at this moment, amongst other ones as well. Especially at my school, is very popular because it's it's constantly changing, constantly growing, and people are also starting to realize marketing is actually really cool like you could do, um, more of the visual part of marketing you can now, especially with this day and age. This is crazy, and not when I've kind of learned Since I've been taking my consumer analytics class, I've kind of been learning that I'm interested more in the analytics part of marketing, which is more statistical work, a lot of like computer work out because I've never heard of. You guys get the white so they didn't know how to do business analytics and that actually cause them to not get the job so that kind of made me realize how important it is and how fast growing the marketing industry is there now require you have a lot more specifications and abilities because so many people are marketing majors and a lot more girls into it. You're not going to get into a little bit more of like my advice to anyone interested in marketing. I've always been interested in marketing, like I mentioned, because I do want to primarily focus my career in the entertainment cosmetic, which is the beauty industry or fashion industry three industries that I'm most interested in. What, um, fashion marketing is what the entertainment industry requires for marketers of what you're expected to do, how you're expected to do it, what you need to know. Don't just pick marketing because it sounds cool. How to promote your product was just a lot of stuff, and my first year that I took a marketing class I kind of was like This is so much like definition like fundamental stuff. I want to get really creative and I want to start doing stuff that really just kind of get me going and not a junior, and I'm taking like my actual major courses like higher level marketing classes is actually becoming very interesting to me. Also try to meet up with different marketing majors on campus and kind of talk about their experience as well. I started my marketing classes, so just try to, like, decide when you feel like your school kind of pushes that you need to know what you want to do because they need to create your schedule. I've seen a lot of people that people kind of called super seniors, and they're still here, but they're working towards the same goal, and there's no rush in school because as long as you get your degree, that's all that matters, right? And the last part of me that I'm gonna kind of talk about, you know, different ways to spruce yourself up game knowledge and you're in the marketing feel what you know, resource is to take advantage of as a marketing major. I feel like I that's a lot First, I'm going to talk about what extracurriculars I feel is important to be involved in as a marketing major. I am in the Public Relations Committee for Student Government, and I'm also ah, part of the marketing club on campus. I just highly recommend that if you are a marketing major or any major, you need to show that your participation on campus focuses a lot with what you want to do. Once you start getting involved, you want to start marketing yourself for future jobs. Because, truthfully, I've marketed myself to start connections I've made since since high school family connections. Anything I could to get my experience in business or marketing in general. So you know that you struggle with that, trying to make, you know, timeto meet with someone who may be older than you, and kind of like a mock interview because it will really help you. It's called Marketing Edge, and it's actually really great. It's like a six hour course, and I think it's important because what to do it? You can actually list that under your qualifications when you do the resume that you are marketing edge certified.
