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.

Thinking about the future is a tough thing to do and it involves a great deal of decision making. I agree that it would be tough making a mistake and having to backtrack all the way from the beginning. I like how you stated that college is "in a way taking baby steps to be successful in the future." College is the stepping stone to a future career. Striving for good grades in your business classes will help you in the long run. Graduating with a BA is an ultimate goal of mine, but I agree that an MBA is the best way of becoming successful. Top companies today pretty much require and MBA and I think it's great that you plan on achieving it. Your goals seem pretty realistic and I hope that everything works out for the best!

Making decision that will influence your future are very hard. I know that mistakes can be made or decisions that you take backtrack you all the way to the beginning of something. For me it was kind of hard because I made a mistake in choosing my major freshman year, I was a bio premed major and I absolutely disliked it. That decision took me to starting business school from scratch and basically started freshman year all over again. I managed to get through all my classes and I will be graduating on time, but it was a lot of effort and stress taking eighteen credit hours every semester. Grades are always important, especially your major GPA. I think that it is a great idea that you are looking for an internship, I had an offer last year, but decided not to take it and highly regret it.
