Major and/or Concentration: Communication, Advertising and Promotions
Names of current (relevant) courses: Advertising and Promotional Design, Communication Research, Intro to Public Relations
Expected graduation date: December 2006
What you like about advertising: I like the creative aspect of advertising. I love playing with Photoshop and designing ads. I like to try to be unique and think out of the box, and Communication definitly requires that sort of thinking.
What don't you like about advertising: Its competitive, and I'm not a cut-throat person! There are some people you just don't want to work with, or products that you'd rather not advertise. Which is why I want to work with non-profit organizations. They have their own politics, but you usually find good people to work with.
Future career plans: I want to go into web design. (also, see above answer :o)
Current job: none in advertising, I work with children right now
Current internship (if any): I am interning at Mary Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church. Over the summer I design and created their website. I'm not their "webmaster" and update the site. I'm trying to get more involved in other communication aspects of the church. Visit their website at www.mtm-umc.org I'm also working with the Catholic Campus Ministry at SCSU. I don't have their website up yet because we don't know how to access the school's server!
