Pamela S. Daves
WHAT I DO NOW: I work for the largest 3rd party logistics company in North America in the Colorado Springs office.
MY JOB/WORK CONSISTS OF: I am an account manager; I work with about 40 different clients in different industries and help manage each of their supply chain/transportation needs.
HOW I GOT TO LSUS (OR WHY I CHOSE LSUS): I am from the area; I started college at LSU in Baton Rouge. While I loved it and had a great time, I wanted to be closer to home, so I transferred back to LSU Shreveport.
FOND MEMORIES OF LSUS: I loved going to college with both of my sisters- we all took a speech class together and had a great time!
LSUS FACULTY WHO HELPED ME: My advisor Wolfgang Hinck and teachers Karen James and Janet Goode helped me tremendously in my time at LSUS.
HOW LSUS HELPED ME SUCCEED: The smaller classes and higher level of involvement because of the smaller classes helped me stay focused and accountable for my studies!
ADVICE TO COLLEGE-BOUND STUDENTS: GO TO CLASS!!!!
ADVICE TO SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO ENTER MY FIELD: Marketing/Business is a great field to enter; it is very versatile and there is so much to do with. My biggest piece of advice is network- you never know when someone you've met can help you in your career down the road.
TIPS ON CHOOSING A MAJOR/CAREER: Do what you want- no one else is going to be doing your job for you after you graduate, so why should you listen to what others think in your major/career decisions?
I'VE LEARNED THIS FROM LIFE: Life is short, you can't stress over the small things!
WHAT I'D BE DOING IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD: If I had all the time in the world (and funds of course) I would travel the whole entire globe. I am slowly working my way through Europe now, but I really want to explore Australia, Africa, Asia, everywhere... there are so many different ways of life, I think it is important to understand and embrace cultures outside of your own.
