Interest

I recently graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara where I earned a double degree in Communications and History. Currently, I am looking to launch my career in the Marketing industry, focusing on areas relating to Market Strategy, Project Management, and Brand Building. To achieve this, I am expanding my web presence through social media and my blog. My mission with Little Girl in the Business World is to chronicle my job search, detailing what I have learned on interviews and articles I find educational. Along the way, I am learning things about my passions, my career goals, and myself.
