Marketing Degree: Student Perspective on Marketing Major at UAB

>>Hi, my name’s Nicole Slaski. I’m a marketing major concentrating in digital
marketing. My first major was actually musical theater. So I had auditioned in Chicago for a bunch
of different schools. Had never really heard of UAB, and then ended
up here. But ended up just having a change of heart,
and wanted to switch majors. And so I switched to marketing and loved it. The classes at least that really cemented
what I wanna do were social media marketing, digital marketing, integrative marketing,
communications, the ones that fall all in that digital marketing track. They’re so interesting to me and I think it’s
such an interesting new field. Definitely just made me wanna pursue that
as a career. I’ve had so many great professors and advisers. They were all just so great in helping me
figure out what I liked and just telling me about their experiences. And so I would just say, come tour the school,
come talk with some professors if you can, talk with some students. And just get a feel to see if it’s the right
fit. I definitely found my fit here. I’m in Kappa Delta, so that’s a sorority on
campus. I don’t know, I hadn’t been as involved on
campus before that and it definitely really pushed me to really explore new opportunities
and talk to more people. And it’s helped me so much in the last two
years of my college career. Junior and senior year have really, I feel
like I’ve grown so much and I’m really prepared now to go off into the real world. I do a lot of freelance photography and so
I’ve worked with some local companies doing head shots and product photos. And I was the social media coordinator at
Steel City Pop, so that was my internship course that I did for UAB. I took photos for them and scheduled all their
posts out and things like that. So that was really fun. I was able to kind of explore that creative
marketing side. It was a great stepping-stone that was kind
of my first marketing job experience. And so that was really the stepping stone
into all these other endeavors that I’ve been able to do. I have grown to absolutely love Birmingham,
that’s why I have never switched schools or anything after switching majors. I love downtown, it’s so up and coming. There’s so many jobs available. There’s just so much to do. And I definitely want to stick around and
work here for a while. So my ultimate goal would be to have a career
where I’m able to travel or at least work and live abroad somewhere. I just know for sure that I wanna keep traveling
and living in different places, and experiencing different cultures.
