Foods Marketing Careers
There are any number of reasons to be a food marketing major at Saint Joseph's University, but jobs, career development and industrial excitement are just the top of the list. The food industry is varied and includes the marketing of products from basic foodstuffs to cosmetics, and virtually anything that can be found in a Wal-Mart, or other food store. It includes career areas from merchandising to advertising to technology.
If you are interested in taking your abilities and applying it to an area of study which will allow you to earn among the top starting salaries for Saint Joseph's graduates, an industry which employs more people than any other, an industry which allows you to pursue any business interest, and an industry where you wake up each morning anxious to go to work, then you should be a food marketing major.
Do you like working with people? Do you like being creative and able to see results immediately? Are you a person who craves a challenging career in a dynamic industry? Do you want to have choices about where you work, who you work for, and what type of work you choose? Do you want a major in which you learn practical knowledge and apply it in the classroom and in the industry? Would you like to meet and speak with CEOs and Presidents of major corporations? Would you like to be part of an immense and ever-growing network of Saint Joseph's graduates, graduates who will help you get ahead and live by the motto "The Hawk Will Never Die."? If this is what you want, you are a food marketing major.
The food industry is huge and your degree and training will provide you with an opportunity to pursue any of the career opportunities within this dynamic industry: sales, promotion, personnel, advertising, marketing, retail management, logistics, analysis, market research, product development, brand management, strategic management and more. All while earning top dollars and all while doing a job that you love. Equally important a career in the food industry has been shown to be very desirable to many other industries that don't have the clear focus on the importance of the consumer, making career shifts to almost any other industry easy and practical.
The food industry is dominated by globally focused companies both in the producer side such as Pepsi, Kellogg, Unilever, and Nestle as well as retailers such as Wal-Mart, Tesco, Del Haze (owner of Food Lion). Food marketing majors who desire an international career have a much greater chance of achieving this objective than any other field of study.
