Rene Carling


What made you decide to choose your major?

The biggest deciding factor for me was that a degree in Management could apply in anything I did. I would have the means to lead a team, work towards a common goal, and to motivate people to accomplish the goal with me. I chose my second major, Marketing, because a company’s success is directly tied to marketing.

What has been one of the most memorable experience you’ve had while attending Radford University?

My most memorable experience at Radford University was when I realized that I belonged at Radford. I came to Radford and within the first two weeks of classes I had made it my home.

What advice would you give to others to help them succeed?

My best advice would be to talk to your professors.  Ask them for advice, to review your resumes, to help you find the right career.  I bet they will help you and you will have a great working relationship with them.  My professors are so encouraging and supportive and that is what students need to succeed.

What are your career goals?

I would love to be a creative director at an advertising agency.

How has your undergraduate experience prepared you to achieve these goals?

My management courses have taught me what to do and what not to do when guiding a team to a common goal.  And my marketing courses have allowed me to be creative and to expand my mind to discover fresh concepts that are sure to inspire others.
