As of now, the only thing I know for certain is that I will work in communication in some way or another– whether that be in public relations, general, strategic communications, or in a marketing department. The exciting thing about these three departments are that they are either all apart of almost every successful businesses or some combination of the three is a department in most successful organizations.
Through studying Public Relations for a Bachelors of Science and Marketing as a minor, I have learned a lot of different skills, such as graphic design, journalistic writing, advertising, sales, and data analytics, so I feel comfortable that I could excel in any field, whether that be a business or not-for-profit work. Those are the main areas I will pursue in future endeavors.
Should I work in business, I would really enjoy working for a company that I legitimately believe in. I want to fully back the company I would be representing, because I feel it would be unethical to put on a facade for a business that I do not believe in entirely. This is why I would prefer to work in communication rather than sales.
For this reason, I would love to work in not-for-profit, because I would always have something very specific to support, and I would likely never have to worry about whether or not what I am doing is for the right reasons. One organization I have felt passionate about for years is the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research, and I would definitely always love working for a company in the business of saving lives.
I would like to work for a value-driven organization that does good. I know I could bring a lot to any organization whether it be creatively or just putting in the necessary work. I will be flexible when searching for jobs in terms of location, salary, and hours.
