Journal Entry 1
One point that struck me in the presentation was the 4P’s of marketing which were product, price, place and promotion that Sir Nate briefly talked about. Sir’s story did affirm my career plans, because he talked about his journey starting off as an account manager to being a director and all the way up to his current position of being head of marketing and communications for The Villar Group. These sort of align with what I see for myself in the future. Sir Nate talked about our first job being the place where we plant our roots, learn and plan for the next steps in our career, and thats exactly what I see myself doing. Before starting my own business or company, I do want to work somewhere to gain experience at a place where I can learn a lot. I do see myself pursuing the marketing / advertising path. I’m not entirely sure of specifics just yet, but I think the career talk assured me that by being in this course, I am headed towards the right direction.
