By Miranda Hazen, an American student from Los Angeles, California on the associate degree program at the Hubbard College of Administration (HCA), Los Angeles, CA. I just completed the “Marketing and Public Relations Surveys” apprenticeship. I thought it was pretty awesome! I did it at a Cosmetics and Skincare company. We found a product that needed to be surveyed in order to promote it better to a particular public. I made a survey based on the knowledge I gained from the “Marketing and Public Relations Surveys” course. Before doing that course, I had no idea that there were so many techniques behind creating a survey. I thought you just asked some random questions, tabulate the answers and that was it. In doing the course, I learned the techniques for getting real results with surveys. So when I did the apprenticeship, I got to apply all of the data from the course. I got first hand experience and really made sure that I understood and could correctly apply everything so that I got an actual product from the surveying activity. Now, I can successfully put together and use surveys. This is SO important in any business because you have to know what your public wants or thinks about your product or services, if you want to be successful at promoting that is. Therefore, if you do this course and apprenticeship, your business will expand and be very profitable! HCA is a self-paced business school that offers an exceptional business administration curriculum, unique learning technology, life-changing apprenticeships and internships, assistance with job placement and a lifetime warranty for students. I am currently on the “Public Relations” apprenticeship.
