With graduation approaching at a devilishly quick pace, I've been thinking a lot about my future employment.
"What shall I do?" I ask myself.
"Something that will make you happy," I reply.
"...that's not a very helpful answer, Self," I say.
"Hey, I'm not Buddha, okay. Deal," I retort.
Clearly, my internal ramblings don't get me very far.
However, this topic has forced me to evaluate whether or not what my preferred field is actually what I think it is.
(BTW, thankfully, it is. At least, from what I've gathered.) Through my research I've stumbled upon the typical, "Understanding Marketing" analogies, AKA advertising is a sign about the circus.
I knew the Circus analogy. I did not hear the dating one:
You see a fabulous girl/guy at a party. You approach them and say, "I’m fantastic in bed."
That’s Direct Marketing.
You’re at a party with a bunch of friends and see a fabulous girl/guy. You have one of your friends approach them, point at you and say, "She’s/He’s fantastic in bed."
You see a fabulous girl/guy at a party. You approach them to get their telephone number. The next day you call and say, "Hi, I’m fantastic in bed."
You’re at a party and see a fabulous girl/guy. You get up, straighten your clothes, walk up and pour them a drink. You open the door, pick up their bag after it drops, offer them a ride, and then say, "By the way, I’m fantastic in bed."
That’s Public Relations.
You’re at a party and see a fabulous girl/guy. They walk up to you and say, "I hear you’re fantastic in bed."
That’s Brand Recognition." (Glomped from Jokes-O-Matic)
Use this for college students and all marketing questions will be solved. And put into practice outside the classroom...
