“I graduated from Richmond in 2011 with a degree in BA Business Administration: Marketing and a Minor in Theatre. I chose to study at Richmond because of its location and the international experience it offers. During my time at Richmond, my favourite lecturer was Dr. Barclay – the best professor of theatre, who had the best capability of grabbing my attention and keeping me interested. In every one of his classes, I learned something new.
My time at Richmond and thanks to the great support I received from the professors, prepared me for my career path. I have received plenty of advice on which career path to take and whether there are other attractive opportunities worth considering. This is an incredible advantage students should make full use of, to make sure they are not missing anything out there. My advice for current students who are looking to start their career is to follow your gut feeling, don’t jump start your career. Take your time travelling, understanding different cultures, doing temporary jobs along the way. After a few years at a job, no one cares about what you studied, but what you have to say and how good you are at it. Thanks to Richmond I had the opportunity to follow my gut and ambitions I got the job offer as an Account Manager at Amazon, based in Italy.”
