Year in school: Graduated!
Length of time worked at UMD Career & Internship Services: January 2011 – May 2014
Favorite place in Duluth: Canal Park/ Lake Walk
Best career advice you’ve received: We are all in the business of marketing. We create a brand for ourselves through networking, skill, and work ethic. Once we recognize that experience and knowledge, we turn around and sell it to the one who needs our skills most. ~ UMD Marketing Professor
Piece of career advice you have for other students: Be true to yourself and follow you passion, because if you are doing what you love, you will never have to “work” a day in your life.
Next Steps: Since graduating, Zach now works at a marketing firm as an Assistant Account Executive.
