Meet Nichole Healy, a Marketing major from Marquette, Mi. Nichole plans to graduate in 2023.
How did you decide your major/minor?
During my gap years after high school, I was working full time at Target. I worked my way up to a position where I was responsible for visual merchandising, managing, and monitoring sales in a specific section. When deciding my major, I found that the components of this position that I found the most enjoyable and rewarding, aligned with marketing.
What's an example of a cool, interesting or helpful thing that you have done as a part of your major?
Part of the marketing program that I have found to be enjoyable and impactful is a group project I am currently working on. This semester I am working with a group of peers to develop a digital marketing plan for a local business. Though our research and plan development is not complete, I am proud of the work we have done so far and have found the process to be especially fulfilling.
What are you involved in on- and off-campus and what has been the most rewarding experience?
My on-campus involvement has been limited mostly to completion of courses. In May 2022 I was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, the international business honor society, based on my academic achievement. Off-campus I work as a server and bartender at the Holiday Inn. In my position, I get to connect with a wide range of people, which has helped to shift the direction I intend to take in terms of my career. I plan to earn my real estate license following graduation and continue working in hospitality as I build a clientele.
