A job interview. Writing an online restaurant review. A political debate with a friend.
In each instance, you are marketing yourself and your ideas.
This is the reason SDSU senior, Cooper Abrams, chose marketing as his major. “Everyone is marketing and selling themselves all the time, whether they know it or not,” he said. “Marketing allows you to be creative in how to communicate value through multiple channels and – ultimately – to the customer you’re targeting.”
Abrams, a native of Sacramento, chose to attend SDSU because it “offered everything I was looking for in a college at the best value: Location, academics and extra-curricular opportunities.”
One of those extra-curricular opportunities was the 3M Frontline Sales Internship program Abrams participated in during the summer of 2016. After an intensive training session at 3M’s corporate headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, he was assigned to cover Seattle during a seven-week business assignment. “I couldn’t have asked to be a part of a better company – they provided tremendous support and opportunities to grow, both personally and professionally,” he said. “I would highly recommend this internship to students looking for a challenging but rewarding experience.”
Once Abrams graduates in May, 2017, he plans to work for an international organization that offers him travel and career growth opportunities. “Ultimately, I hope to make a positive impact on others by finding new ways to contribute through my passions.”
