I've been in media sector as strategist for almost 6 years in which I had the chance to work with global companies from different sectors. During my years in media agency; I had the chance to work with Vodafone, Turkish Airlines (Europe communication), Markafoni (well-known e-commerce site) and Apple. Afterwards I've transferred to Vodafone where I had the chance to experience media planning from client side and got the chance to understand marketing dynamics within corporate life.Due to some organizational changes in Vodafone, I decided to leave my job and for the last 2 months I am acting as an advisor to a start up called Cup'n Go that aims to open more then 100 coffee shop corners inside plazas in Turkey and abroad within near future. I am handling their communication plan, designing their website and searching for ideal plazas to open more branches. I am also acting as a media advisor to Alacatı Tourism Foundation where our aim is to promote Alacatı within Turkey and outside of Turkey to attract more visitors. 

Since I mainly managed global clients and worked in global companies, working abroad will not be a challenge but an exciting adventure for me so now I am seeking opportunities abroad where I can broaden my horizon and become a global marketeer.
