Job History and Responsibilities:
I am employed full-time with Unicom management in the Twin Cities area.
I am a marketing consultant. I started work on March 1, 2001 as a new hire.
My biggest responsibility now is going to apartment complexes that have high
vacancy rates and get them rented up. I do a lot of determining demographics.
The job prior was a manager of Footlocker. I worked for that company for
nearly eight years while going to school. My responsibilities were doing
the day-to-day things as a manager - schedules, customer service, accounts
payable & receivable.
How I use sociology in my job:
I need to find out people's hot buttons in order to get them to rent my
apartment over the ones across the street. I use social class and demographics
on a daily basis. Social Psychology is the one that sticks in my mind because
of all the different schools of thought.
My internship was the training to become a manager at footlocker. Sociology
has helped me to understand different social groups and how they interact.
The jobs are the same; I am selling a product/service.
