I worked for Walt Disney World in Florida for several years before business school, taking a variety of positions in operations, entertainment, and sales. Although I spent my summer interning for a consumer packaged-goods company, I wanted to follow my passion back into the entertainment industry after I'd obtained my MBA. I utilized my Orlando contacts to get my résumé into consideration for open positions throughout the company and was fortunate enough to interview with the Disneyland Resort.
I'm an associate manager, product marketing, for the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. Each of our theme parks and segment divisions has its own marketing group. My job responsibilities are to develop and manage the marketing strategy behind new attractions and events.
