Please join FischTank Marketing and PR in welcome Zachary Pollack to its summer internship program! In Part Two of this thrilling two part series, FischTank founder Eric Fischgrund sits down with Zachary for an exclusive Q&A.
Zach, we are thrilled to have you at FischTank! Tell us a little about yourself, where do you go to school?
I’m currently a junior at the University of Tampa
Good stuff! What is your area of study?
I’m majoring in marketing, with a minor in sports management.
Ambitious! What do you like most about communications and marketing?
I enjoy being able to communicate as opposed to being sectioned off in a cubicle. I like to move around and see other people as well as talk on the phone and share thoughts and ideas. I love marketing because of its creative side. Being able to figure out demographics and target segments of consumers is very interesting, and I enjoy the challenge of working through how everyone can be so different yet share many common interests.
Very nice, marketing to various audiences sure is complex. I wish there was a simple answer. What industries interest you?
The sports industry is where I would like to be, specifically as a sports marketing executive hopefully one day working for an arena such as MSG (NY) or Amelie Arena (FL).
I’m a Philadelphia sports fan myself, but I’ll let that comment about MSG slide today. What are your favorite sports and teams?
I’m a big baseball fan and dedicate my love for the sport to the New York Yankees since 1996. Basketball is my second favorite sport and sadly have to say the New York Knicks. I also enjoy the PGA.
Baseball had a significant impact on my childhood as well. What about music? Who are your favorite bands/musicians?
I enjoy R&B hip hop but band-wise, I would have to go with Cage the Elephant.
Very nice. Last question for you Zack — share some hobbies with us.
I enjoy exploring Florida’s vast aquatic lands, my passion for music and instrumentals, and eating food from different cultures.
