The various tactics and assignments I’ve done with Top Dog has helped me to understand some of the necessary skills I will need to secure my dream job. My dream job isn’t working for a PR department, but is actually in sales at a turf solutions company called Advanced Turf. After working on a golf course for five years, I was intrigued by the different chemicals and products used by the course superintendent to make the course look so beautiful. I believe being in PR will actually help me excel in sales with the skills I learn in Top Dog. I will have gained important skills to communicate with clients and do assorted jobs to help clients maintain their business with customers so they can continue to purchase the products I am offering.
Top Dog continuously challenges me with new tactics in areas like design that I haven’t worked in before. These challenges are proving to only help me and add new skills to my resume that I can use to pursue my dream career. Advanced Turf is my dream job because of my passion for golf course maintenance, but many of the salesmen working for Advanced Turf currently have years of experience working with chemicals and fertilizers before gaining that job. I have golf course experience but with Top Dog I will be gaining knowledge that many of the current employers don’t possess in the sales field.
Gaining skills in design, research, and communication through Top Dog will separate my resume when applying for this job. I was undecided in my major for the first semester of college and was stuck between PR and business. Working for Top Dog has made me positive I made the right decision. The skills I am gaining in this class are applicable to a real job and I am able to see this through the work I do for our client.
