The Career Research Project helped me a lot better figure out what I plan on doing with the rest of my life. I have thought a lot about what I have wanted to do and where I have wanted to relocate when I graduate from Walsh. It is a very tough decision thinking about your future because you don’t want to make a mistake, or have to backtrack to the beginning and start all over because you made the wrong choice. Being at college may just seem like another school day but really, it is precise in a way that your taking baby steps to be successful in the future.
The action plan that I am going to take is striving for A’s and B’s in all of my business classes. I know it will not be too hard to do well because I really enjoy my Marketing classes. After I receive my bachelor’s degree in Marketing I plan on staying around Ohio for another two years to receive my MBA here at Walsh. I planned on only getting my BA, but after thinking about what I really wanted to do, I decided to go for the Masters. I hope to become a marketing director for a large corporation especially some sort of health care facility or hospital. To achieve this goal I realized that getting my MBA would be my best bet to success. As for now I am still in school full time and currently looking for an internship, I am working on creating a Kiva for Walsh University to acquire donators to lend money to our campus, also critiquing the business called ABCD Corporation in Canton, my group is figuring out a plan to implement a marketing department in their organization.
I think this career research project was a very good idea. It helped me a lot when figuring out exactly what I want to do and I feel a lot more organized now that I have a set plan for myself. Knowing the job aspects in the place I want to relocate to was an important aspect of my future that I had never considered until now. This was a great project that I hope to be able to refer to in the future.
