How long have you worked at Advanced?
Since June 2017
What steps did you take to get your role?
I was coming to the end of my Masters so started applying for different Entry Level roles, completely open to where I ended up. I came to an Assessment Centre at Advanced, and afterwards was offered the role of Product Marketing Executive for IT Services – I had no idea what that meant at the time, but since finding out, I like it!
What is your favourite thing about working for Advanced?
The people. There’s an environment of people caring, wanting to get along with each other and being helpful. Coming into a role that I hadn’t even heard of before I got it, that has been invaluable to my growth and the quality of my work.
What advice would you give to someone who is considering a career in tech?
Be completely open. Fantastic if you have an area already that you’re especially interested in (I love services now), but there are so many different roles available and areas for learning that you probably won’t even know about until you’re working in the industry. If you’re open, then lots of opportunities will come your way. I had no idea I’d ever work in tech and yet I’m now holding meetings with Microsoft around webinars and content creation!
