Account Strategist, Google
Bachelor of Business Management and Journalism
I would consider the mixed degree of Business Management and Journalism at UQ imperative to the acquisition of my new role as Associate Account Strategist at Google. By taking on a diverse course load I learnt that having an understanding of different perspectives was a critical factor in employability. This desire to understand different perspectives motivated my international studies at the University of Edinburgh and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Ensuring that I took opportunity of all the extra resources provided inside and outside of my direct learning experience at UQ then informed my interest in looking for similar workplace environments, like Google.
