Dylan Horenberg – Digital Marketing Specialist

Dylan Horenberg

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” – Henry Ford.

Who Are You?

Thrill Seeker. Food Fanatic. Horror Movie Junkie. Aspiring Van-Lifer/Entrepreneur.

What Attracted You to Your Field of Study?

I love the idea of being able to reach millions of people from anywhere, anytime. You no longer have to be famous, financially successful, or tech-savvy in order to have your message heard by the masses.

What is your dream job title?

Self-Employed / Founder.

What do you feel is the most challenging thing about getting into the marketing industry?

For students like myself, it’s acquiring your first resume-builder. If you’ve never worked in marketing before, then it’ll be very hard to compete with your peers who have such experience. If you never get experience, you’ll never be able to compete. You’ve got to be proactive by creating opportunities for yourself rather than waiting for jobs to come around.

One Lesson You’ve Learned in Life?

If you cut corners, you’ll only end up regretting it. Do things right the first time.

One Item You Can’t Live Without?

A phone. Regardless of where I travel, I’m never more than a phone call away from loved ones, emergency response teams, or Dominoes.

What Tool Do You Find Most Useful at School?

A calendar. In my opinion, school can be completely stress-free as long as you’re organized and productive.

What’s One Thing from Your Bucket List That You Want to Do?

Skydive!

If you could work for any company in the world, who would it be and why?

I’d love to work for Tesla. The fact that they have completely disrupted the automotive industry within such a short time frame and currently have century-old companies panicking is quite the feat. I’d love to be representing such an innovative company (and realistically just really want to drive their cars!)
