Going to university or college for the first time can be a little nerve racking. A lot of campuses are massive, with many hallways that resemble a labyrinth, with lecture halls large enough to engulf about 400 students. You start to think to yourself “wow… I am REALLY not in high school anymore.” As you go through university or college you will not have your teachers asking for you to hand in assignments, and chasing you down if you don’t, instead you will just receive a zero. A strong recommendation to you is that you find a way to stand out.
So how do you stand out in a room of 400 people to your professor? Well firstly you need to meet them. Taking time to sit down with them, introducing yourself and letting them know you are a serious student will aid you greatly. Your prof will be more willing to sit down with you to go over papers, thesis, assignments etc. Through working with Vector Marketing I have realized that I can approach the relationship with my prof., similarly to how I build relationships with my customers. If you have goals that you are trying to achieve, tying your prof. in to helping you be successful in hitting those goals will allow your prof. to take you more seriously and they will help you out to the best of their ability.
Working with Vector, I would never have expected the personal growth that would come along with working with sales. I went into the interview and through training with the mindset of “what do I have to lose?”, and not expecting, “all that I have to gain.” I have learned time management skills, being able to work around a class schedule, organizing my time, still being able to work and earn a #5 scholarship in and around schoolwork. Also, by keeping a very detailed schedule I can decrease my stress levels, and get everything done that I need to. By doing lots of demonstrations and becoming an assistant manager; running interviews has drastically helped me with public speaking and also with doing presentations in class. You will gain confidence by talking in front of people, and because confidence is transferrable, you can use it in interviews to sell yourself to future employers on why they should hire you, and how you can be an asset to their company over others. The Vector Student Opportunity has endless possibilities for those who are looking to become the best they can be.
I am really blessed to be involved with such an amazing company and to constantly be challenged to become the best version of myself.
