Corporate Events Marketing Association

>>Marketing Association (MA)

Description

The purpose of the Marketing Association (MA) is to gather the resources of students, faculty, alumni, friends and employers to educate UCLA Anderson students about the field of marketing and to build the careers of our members. There are currently more than 150 student members. Our mission is threefold. First, we educate UCLA Anderson students about the benefits of a marketing background for all types of careers including brand management, entrepreneurship, consulting, business development and general management. Second, through seminars, resume assistance and interview workshops, we assist our members in aggressively promoting themselves for internships and fulltime positions. Lastly, by partnering with the faculty, administration and admissions office to build the Anderson brand and by participating in industry events and conferences, we aim to drive awareness among corporate and prospective student communities that UCLA Anderson is a premier marketing institution.

One idea

by Pilar

Event production or event marketing. Corporate events, tradeshows, conferences, association meetings, hotel rentals, etc. (Not to mention arts festivals, concerts, etc. although it sounds like you're burnt out on that.) You have experience in marketing, dealing with VIPs, budgets, those are all good skills. If this sounds at all interesting, I would start by looking into Meeting Planners International (do a google search) and attending some local events, set up some informational interviews to see if this might work. Then you might volunteer somewhere like doing marketing for a non-profit or fundraiser, to prove your skills are transferable and get new contacts
