Maria has also been applying to other jobs all over the country and has even had a couple interviews so far but she hasn't ruled our her dream job of working for Adidas in their marketing department at their headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany!
what is your favorite ama memory
Maria says her favorite AMA memory has to come from being a member of the Case team during the 2016-17 school year. She says that year was filled with great memories and friends and of course a 2nd place win. Watching the team present in NOLA and celebrating after was a great time and I’ll forever have those memories.
HOW DID AMA HELP YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
AMA has provided me with so many opportunities that have helped me become the professional I am today; from career fairs, to resume workshops, to marketing competitions and networking. The real world experience I gained as a member and through leading the Case team comes up in conversation during every interview I have.
Thank you for sharing with us Maria! We wish you the best of luck in everything you do!
