I am currently in my fourth year at North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND. I declared Marketing as a major my first year at the University. I chose Marketing because I value the effect that Marketing departments have on the direction of a company. I believe that promoting a product or service to meet consumer's needs is vital and I enjoy connecting a consumer with a company and creating loyalty. I will complete my degree in the fall of 2012, however my second major, Human Resource Management will keep me at the Univeristy until Spring 2013.

I added Human Resource Management to my Marketing major in February 2012. I have realized after working with Strengths, that it is my calling to work directly with people and meeting their personal needs. I would have just earned a degree in Human Resource Management, but I kept the Marketing degree because I am still highly interested in that as well.

Fortunately, I will be able to graduate in four years with two degrees due to incoming credits from high school as well as a heavy credit load from semester to semester.
