Words from our Summer On-Campus Interns – Dominique


OCIP selfie - houstonDominique Houston interned with the Provost Office – Commencement and Facilities Planning as a senior, marketing and management major from Southern California. She assisted with the move of Hankamer School of Business to the Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation.  She enjoys watching basketball and participating in social eating events. Here is a summary of her experience:

“My intern experience was phenomenal! I went into this looking for an opportunity to grow and gain experience into project management and came out with valuable life lessons, friends and business savvy. I enjoyed every part of it, except the days when I found out what professionals do on a daily basis…wake up early. It was tough some days with the early mornings to move, class and then back to move. But it was worth it! Anyone you ask in that building would probably tell you that I had a great time and I truly did.

 I was able to meet a lot of new people and understand the value of networking. Most days, it didn’t feel like networking but rather talking to faculty and helping them in their needs. I realized that is a huge part of it. People like to see what you can do for them and how interested you are. That showed me that gaining someone’s respect with your work will open up more doors for you. Working on this project was also a great lead-in because I am a student in the business school. This fact also made it easier to relate and explain my goals and interests. Finally, my supervisor was great. She knew just about everyone which also exposed me to many different people. It was also a great advantage to pick her brain and see how she handles everything on her plate. There were many teaching lessons about her ability to multitask and keep everything straight. I learned a lot of valuable things from her this summer.”

Distribution Management and Technology Major

Students who are interested in topics like project management, supply chain management, management consulting, and purchasing might be interested in checking out the Distribution Management and Technology major.  For those who are unfamiliar with the field, distribution management involves the process of getting a product from the manufacturer to the customers.  Good job opportunities are expected in this field, and Baylor’s DMT major has a built-in internship component.  Freshmen and sophomores who are interested in this program can prepare by following the pre-business plan of classes.  Acceptance into the program is competitive, so maintaining a strong grade point average is essential.

Career Spotlight: Marketing Manager


Marketing is a popular major choice for many of our students, due to the perception that interpersonal skills and creative talent are key elements.  Today’s post will focus on the responsibilities of marketing managers.  From Occupational Outlook Handbook:

Marketing managers estimate the demand for products and services that an organization and its competitors offer. They identify potential markets for the organization’s products.

Marketing managers also develop pricing strategies to help organizations maximize profits and market share while ensuring that the organizations’ customers are satisfied. They work with sales, public relations, and product development staff.

For example, a marketing manager may monitor trends that indicate the need for new products and services. Then they oversee the development of that new product.

Take note that strategy based on data is a key element of this profession.  Do you consider yourself a strategic thinker?  Do you like analyzing information?  Obviously, the ability to work as part of a team is also critical.

It is also important to recognize that many marketing managers have work experience in the field prior to taking on the management role.  Reviewing full-time job postings for marketing managers will help you gain an understanding of what kinds of experience you will need to be qualified for a leadership role.  You could even begin gaining experience during college through internships.  Make sure to visit the website for the Office of Career and Professional Development for information on how to prepare for and find an internship.

Another resource, the American Marketing Association, has a section of their website devoted to students.  It includes a job board.  Keep in mind that once you determine if a career in marketing is for you, you will need to develop a plan for marketing your own skills and talents.
