I am passionate about pursuing a career in marketing. I believe that although in a different filed, my previous experience has helped me develop transferable skills which will be valuable in a marketing context. I have always enjoyed the marketing aspect of the roles I have had and also the projects and presentations I have prepared as part of my marketing courses. I hope my achievements to date are only the prerequisite for successfully tackling new challenges.
