Employment data – MSc Strategic Marketing (on campus)
I have always had a keen interest in branding, specifically in the FMCG sector. Since applying to Imperial, I have had my heart set on working within brand management in an FMCG company. Towards the end of my first term, in December 2020, and with the guidance of Imperial’s exceptional careers consultants, I was offered a work placement in London at P&G for brand management, which I accepted.

In March 2021 I received an offer from Nielsen UK and have since been a part-time Digital Client Services Executive. All my past experiences were in Asia or North America, and as I am trained as an advertising and public relations practitioner in the US, I was familiar with writing and producing in the American style. Working part-time while studying at Imperial allowed me to really understand the business environment and ethics in the UK and is helping me finding my interest, passion and professionalism in the marketing industry in the UK, which is something I think will help me compete in future job hunts.
