Hi! My name is Kovie Biakolo and I am May 2011 Drake University Marketing graduate. Originally thinking that I was headed to law school or for a year abroad in Spain, I have found myself unexpectedly in Chicago (crashing my brother’s place) seeking entrance into the marketing field.
In this job market, there really is not much room to be picky. However, I have the strongest passion for event marketing/event planning and that is the job position I would ideally like to find myself in. Upon relating my recent life stories to one of my mentors, she gave me an idea to go to marketing events, in fact all sorts of events, and blog about it. I thought: finally, some practical advice. I expanded it to volunteering to help with those events and then blogging about it. Then, I figured why not blog about a neat marketing idea or two every now and then as well. So, this is life as I know it….Enjoy!
