With one of my degrees being in Marketing and the other in Human Resources Management I have done a few service learning projects, from designing a training program for a company to mapping out a complete marketing plan.
I like working with organizations around the Lansing area versus the professor saying “Here is an imaginary company, do A B and C for it.” Through this class and my past experiences it is my understanding that service learning projects are a key aspect of academies and professional development. It helps students establish themselves as a contributing member of the Lansing community. It has helped me network within my “what I want to be when I grow up” profession.
The only apprehension I have about this project is not pleasing the client. I’m always afraid that the client won’t like the finished project. However, it is volunteer work and I know as long as I put 100% of my into the project then there isn’t much more I can do.
