"So, you're an Economics major...what are you going do with that?"
When I was a student, I got that question on a weekly basis. If you are an Economics, Math, or Statistics major, then I'm sure you've been asked a similar question. What are you doing with your life?
Chances are you are a nerd. You can't just get in a car and drive; you spend at least 30 seconds calculating the optimal route to get you where you need to go quickly and efficiently. Where others get overwhelmed with a spreadsheet of numbers, you get excited to find the story the numbers tell.
But there's more to you than numbers. You enjoy thinking creatively. You are passionate and ambitious in your own way. You live a calculated life....but you're going to calculate your way to the top.
On the other hand, maybe you are BCOMM grad who always hated the "fluff" of marketing and liked digging into the numbers, the research, the nitty gritty of it all. You realize that a marketing campaign is only as good as the results that come from it.
If you relate to any or all of this, then I have an opportunity with your name all over it.
But first, you should know my story. I thought I would end up being some sort of analyst for a business somewhere. I was looking for internships when I found one in digital marketing. Digital marketing? Isn't that those annoying, flashing ads that follow me around the internet? No thank you.
Fortunately, my GPA wasn't high enough for anything "prestigious" so I tried it out. Best. Decision. Ever. The data at my fingertips was just begging to be analyzed. I could run hundreds of experiments simultaneously that provided actionable insights. The best part? I didn't just hand those insights off to management - I got to use them to optimize campaigns myself and make a real difference for dozens of businesses in different industries.
The people I worked with were young, fun, and passionate (but still nerds...like me).
Oh, and I didn't have anything to do with annoying, flashing ads. It's all about relevant, helpful content in front of the right customer at the right time.
This type of work may be perfect for you. Maybe not. Either way, I want to provide a golden opportunity for you to try it.
