How did you prepare for your time here?
Honestly, I didn't have much spare time since I was busy completing a project thesis on AI in Social Media Marketing in Germany, which was my top priority. But I tried to prepare myself mentally for driving on the other side. 😃
Which team are you working in currently?
I’m currently part of the marketing team headed by Tracy Armstrong. My direct supervisor is Molly Alcock.
What are the biggest differences between living here vs living in Germany?
- Driving on the other side
- Paying and having the exchange rate in mind
- Not having a cantine at work
- Dipping pizza
- Having beans and curry on a jacket potato instead of sour cream
- Going through gates at train stations
- Being able to pay by card everywhere
What was your best experience so far?
Besides travelling around the country, living independently has been a thrilling journey for me. Especially as I previously lived with my mom. This transition has required me to become self-reliant, managing household tasks and planning my shopping. It's a period that has not only fostered my independence but also served as a valuable preparation for moving out in the future.
What did you learn while working in marketing?
In short, my time in marketing has been like a crash course covering website design, social media management, crafting email newsletters, conducting competitor analysis and a bunch of other tasks. The work was super creative and I picked up loads of valuable skills that I'm sure will be very useful for my future career.
