Arian Azizi

(2021, MKTG Major)

Why did you pick your major and what’s your dream job?

  • I love the psychology behind marketing: why people are attracted to products, brand & product development, buying habits, etc. My favorite part of marketing is the people; the world of marketing is about constant networking and building relationships, as well as being a consumer. My dream job is working in product and/or brand development, preferably with CPG’s (consumer packaged goods)! 

What advice do you have for Pamplin students?

  • Definitely take advantage of having to take core business classes in every major of Pamplin; it will help you figure out what you do and don’t like, as well as where you fit into the business world. With online learning, stay organized with a calendar (either virtual or pen&paper) and figure out what is the best way for you to retain information (i.e. writing things down, typing notes, etc.).

Where have you interned, what did you do, and how was your experience? 

  • I am currently interning with Alliance Technology Group. I am a Business Development Representative intern and working on outreach and furthering accounts, helping to get them a customized solution to their business problems. 

What is your favorite part about being a peer advisor?

  • My favorite part about being a peer advisor is having the opportunity to help fellow or potential Pamplin students figure out how to make the most of their experience.
