The Green Apple Strategy team had the opportunity to participate in the 2018 MNPS’s Career Exploration Fair at the Music City Center. This year marked the 10-year anniversary for the event in which high school freshman explore a variety of different career areas and talk with local professionals about their interests.
During the event, students had the chance to ask us questions about a career in marketing and get advice on how they can begin to pursue their interests in marketing now while they’re still in school.
Choosing a Career Doesn’t Have to be Puzzling
We also had the chance to do a little “teaching”—creating a green apple puzzle with pieces highlighting all the various areas of marketing they could learn. Think of giant apple with pieces that say branding, website development, social media, design, SEO, etc.
As they picked a piece of the puzzle, we’d discuss how we work to support businesses through that service. This gave students the chance to learn about all the different facets of marketing and identify specialities that interested them.
