In college, i was involved in all the key extra curricular activities and was a core member of our College Fest organising group, mainly involved in marketing the event
I have 2 years of work experience in advertising and have received an excellence certificate for continuously making a positive difference for over 6 months

Hello there!!!
And thanks for dropping by. I have a few questions for you though before I answer your post:
- What are your goals?
- What is your current post? What do you do? what are your biggest achievements?
- Have you been promoted? How many times?
- What about extra curricualrs? volunteer work?

If you have any doubts you should look at a few other posts on our forum, and to see how detailed you can get!

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi,

I started working as a junior media executive where I was involved in media planning and media buying. After working there for almost a year and a half, i got the opportunity to join another organization as a client servicing executive. There i was alone responsible for 8 clients and reported directly to the VP. After 8 months of working there, i got the offer to work in strategy in a branding and communications firm and have been working there ever since. So, although i didn't get any official promotion, getting these opportunities itself was sort of an elevation.
During engineering, i was more involved in the extra-curricular activities than the curricular activities :P .. I led the marketing team of our college fest which was a state-level event and also played the lead role in a few plays that we did for the most reputed one act play competition of my city.
I did volunteer as a writer for the blind in a few exams that they took. However, I'm not sure whether there is any documentation of that. Will have to check.
As for my achievements, there is nothing extraordinary to state. I did complete BA in Indian Classical dance and Engineering simultaneously, if that would count. And i also received an excellence certificate at work for continuously making a positive difference in the organization.
My immediate goal, after graduation, would be to enter the media and entertainment industry. I want to work in film marketing. I come from the land of Bollywood. In my country, that is a huge employment generating industry. My long-term goal would be to make a contribution to this industry and take it to the next level in my field of expertise.

Hello there!
So now things make more sense for me. If film marketing is really your goal, then you have three degree options I think, the MBA, the MS in Marketing, and a Masters in film. From what I know of the film industry (and I'm not on the inside, and not in Bollywood, so you should definitely verify this with outside sources) the most important thing are your connections. This tends to lead me to think that a degree from a school heavily involved in the film industry (like UCLA, USC, Austin in the US) would be the best option. But that's Hollywood and not Bollywood, so you should find a few industry folks to speak with there to figure out what your best options are.

I hope this helps,
