Walmart is a huge supporter of the ANA overall and we are honored to support AEF’s mission to help build the next generation of marketing talent. Our partner school, University of Arkansas – Pine Bluff, is right in our backyard so it complements our desire to invest in future talent in the area.
The Marketing industry, as a whole, has so much potential to impact society, today and in the future. It gives companies a voice in society in a unique way. The power of the industry, paired with its ever-changing landscape, requires that we have the best of the best influencing perceptions and behaviors.
Constantly seek opportunities to learn.
Our industry will be better thanks to the next generation of diverse talent. New perspectives, by definition, infuse creativity into our processes, our ways of thinking and our marketing!
I love seeing other marketers, especially those early in their career, find success. There is nothing better than celebrating those successes!
Take time to invest in your network. Keep up with connections but also reach out to those that pique your interest. This will allow you to learn outside of your day-to-day job but also be in a position to pivot as needed. Never too soon to network!
