Miranda Wise

“I love being so close to downtown Naperville and the train station so I can take frequent trips to Chicago. I also enjoy North Central’s smaller class sizes. It makes it easier to build relationships with my professors,” says Miranda.

Marketing has proven to be a good fit for Miranda. “I learned I have a knack for connecting with people and showing them the benefits of a product, which lines up with marketing.” Her work as publicity chair for the Cardinal Union Activities Board, which organizes most of the events for students, and her involvement in the American Marketing Association have complemented her marketing classes. She landed an internship in Chicago with Mojo Spa, creator of homemade bath and beauty products, and plans to work in sales or the clothing industry.

Miranda credits North Central’s Career Development Center for “helping me understand expectations and responsibilities. They coached me in creating a resume, using online resources and preparing for interviews.”
