North Central College - Naperville, IL

Water rides, candy bars, chiropractic care—Bradly can market just about anything.

Bradly jumped into the marketing workforce early in his college career. He landed a part-time position at the marketing office for Raging Waves Waterpark in Yorkville and then at Williams Chiropractic Center in Lisle through his relationships with North Central faculty, whom he credits with strengthening his marketing skills.

“The faculty goes above and beyond to help you succeed,” he says. “Everyone at North Central really cares about me and my future success.”

Bradly participated in the American Marketing Association (AMA) Case Competition Team. His team of North Central students competed against more than 80 schools to create a marketing campaign for Hershey’s Take 5 candy bar. They were top 10 finalists and presented their campaign to Hershey marketing executives in New Orleans.

“This experience was incredibly rewarding and provided real-life experience that will give me a competitive advantage among my peers.”
