Why Did You Join the Marketing Team
At first it was mainly just to become more involved in ABSA without being a director, but I’ve come to enjoy what we’ve done. It’s been a good opportunity to improve some basic critical thinking/analytical skills, and the lessons we’ve learned are easily transferable to other roles.
To gain more experience in the marketing field.
I joined the Marketing Team because the whole concept of business marketing interests me. I want to be able to learn more and have some experience ahead of time so I know what it’s all about.
I know marketing was my passion and I wanted a more personalized and hands-on approach of the marketing field.
I joined Marketing Team because I wanted to learn how to marketing my products (in the future). I am interested in the process of marketing: who, what, when, where, why and how to market. I was hoping to work with a company and get my feet wet on how to assit them from a marketing aspect.
Learning more about marketing. Fun. People. Experiences
Aside from what you learn in a marketing course, joining the Marketing Team game me an opportunity to learn and express ideas with peers of similar interest as well as gaining hands on experience with small businesses.
It’s a great learning experience in the actual field. I get to learn to interact with people and have a very solid background of marketing skills.
