What have you been doing since leaving Exeter, and what are you doing now?

I’ve been working at Amazon. I initially started as a HR Partner and within the past year changed to an EU Data Analyst.

Why did you choose this career? And what do you enjoy most about your work?

I chose this career as it fits best with the skill set I have. I enjoy the flexibility I have working from home, and the future career prospects that are available to me.

Were you part of the Exeter Student Ambassador Scheme at any point during your studies?

Yes.

What did you enjoy most about your programme and what was the biggest highlight?

The biggest highlight for me was the opportunity to study Animal Behaviour as my dissertation topic.

What did you enjoy most about studying here?

A great mix of social life and studying.

Why did you choose to study at Exeter?

I loved the campus environment and the course seemed to fit what I enjoyed.

What skills and experiences have been most useful for your career?

Statistical analysis and experience with writing reports.

What advice would you give to a current student who wishes to pursue your career?

Gain as much work experience as you possibly can and really make the most of it! The majority of employers do not care if you got a First or a 2:1, but they definitely look out for relevant work experience.

What are your plans for the future?

Within the next year or so, I am planning on keeping my current role and progressing to the next level. I also plan on starting my own small business, as working from home gives me the time to work more on my hobbies.
