TMSC International® Management & Leadership: Marketing: In Business is a Process

According to Armstrong & Kotler (2009), marketing is:

  • Creating and Capturing Customer Value

Armstrong & Kotler (2009) also identify the key elements of  a customer-driven marketing strategy. The marketplace includes:

  • Needs which create “market offering”,
  • Wants which create “market offering”, and
  • Demands.

A simple marketing process includes:

  1. Understand!
  2. Design!
  3. Construct!
  4. Build!
  5. Capture value!

If you are designing a customer-driven marketing strategy “marketing management” is important. “Marketing Management” is:

  • “The art and science of choosing target markets and building profitable relationships with them” (Armstrong & Kotler, 2009).

Remember the potential profitability of a product and its production and the projected  loyalty.

TMSC International® Management & Leadership: Finding Internships

How to get a job has changed. In a Business seminar, it was predicted that individuals would change jobs/careers eight (8) times in a lifetime. I guess if you read Who’s Who, this is  not a new trend. My first career job after college wanted me to have two years of experience. I had to take a position that requires a High School Diploma to get the experience.

How can someone do a better job at starting a career than I did. I figured it out. I was required to do one internship for graduation. This experience was counted toward my experience for employment.

What if, instead of having fun during the Summer School Session, I did an Internship Each Year?

As a manager, I recruited Intern students. Many people don’t like internships because they don’t really pay. But because you are in some type of College/University program, you can get a position that gives you experience you would not qualify for.

Be Better than me! Participate in as many Internships as you can, Start your career in a higher “Position”.

Post Script (PS)

Look up the companies you are interested in. Company values can have an impact on your career. Some companies hire the intern-students. Some companies like to hire from within more than others. Some companies pay for education once hired. Some companies do not encourage employees to attend school. Company values are important to your future. Others know about companies and judge character, even if the judgement may be incorrect.
