“ThreeSixty, I can say honestly, changed my life. It provided me with the foundation I needed, to know what career path I wanted to pursue. Even though I went to school as a declared journalism major for two years, I graduated with a B.A. in marketing communications and a concentration in PR; minor in journalism.
“I can use my journalism skills to tie perfectly in with my marketing asset, making my overall abilities a triple threat. I still have a passion for journalism and now I can utilize that skill, just in a different way. If I didn’t have the real world experience of the newsroom at ThreeSixty, I think I wouldn’t have found out marketing was a skill I had.”
