Mary Jo Malooly
Sales Representative at Republic National Distributing Company
Austin, TX, USA
I am a marketing major at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. The field of Marketing suits me because it offers the most creative aspects in the vast world of “Business.” Marketing encompasses numbers, psychology, creative arts, people, management, global strategies, public relations, and more.
I enjoy working with quantities and data as well as using my creative side to create logos, videos, and ads to sell product, people, and ideas. I have an open mind and work well with others. I enjoy working with progressively minded people that embrace creativity like I do.
Being raised in a border town (El Paso, Texas) has helped me understand and appreciate different cultures; especially the Hispanic culture. Recently I studied in Spain and traveled around Europe for six months. This experience furthered my passion for understanding and learning about other cultures. I hope to continue to travel, meet people from all over the globe, and teach others to be more tolerant.
I think Marketing is a perfect match for me because the field is broad and will allow me to tap into my variety of interests.
