About Me


My name is Jake Konen, and I am a senior pursuing my undergraduate degree in marketing with minors in English and advertising/public relations at Hastings College, a private, liberal arts college in my hometown of Hastings, Nebraska. I will graduate in May of 2018.

My career goal is to manage marketing and communications for a company or nonprofit organization.

I am a dean’s list student and a member of the Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society. I have earned an online certificate in Business Communication from Duke University, as well as a Social Media Certificate from Boot Camp Digital.

In addition to my studies, I enjoy being involved in a number of extracurricular groups on campus including BACCHUS, a peer education group focused on the responsible use of alcohol; the Outdoor Club; and Professional Business Leaders.

I have completed internships at the Office of Marketing and Communications at Hastings College, Mary Lanning Healthcare Foundation, Hastings College Foundation, and Hastings Catholic Schools Foundation.

In my free time, I enjoy working out, playing sports, watching good movies, spending time with friends, and listening to music.
