    Although I am not a marketing major student, I am interested in this organization. Marketing is a very diverse field. I believe not matter what industry and company I will work, it is important to have the skill of introducing my business, even introducing myself. I have taken several marketing courses during my MBA program. One of the most important things I learn from these courses is how to present myself in a professional way. I am still working on that. There are so many manners and skills I need to learn. I hope I can do better in next interview.

Since it takes many different required skills for a marketing student to get hired, it’s a good thing that the marketing edge creates a system that create more training system that increases students experiences for better educational skills. This can not only make student get jobs but it can also make them become leaders everywhere they gets hire.

    I think that Marketing Edge is a great idea for all students with a Marketing major. In addition to providing their students with more specialized training in their field, it also aids them in getting jobs in the future.

    One thing that I noticed about the video that caught my attention was the emphasis on EDGE or Educate, Develop, Grow, Employ. It was something that stayed in my head even after I finished watching the video.
