Cinzia studied MSc Strategic Marketing at Birmingham Business School and is now Consulting Group Marketing Coordinator at Oxygen8 Group, Birmingham.
What have you been doing since graduation?
After graduation, I worked as a Marketing Manager Intern for an HR Consultancy company for 3 months. After the internship, I found a permanent position as a Marketing Coordinator for a Technology company called Oxygen8 and my job involved a range of marketing responsibilities, including email marketing, developing social media and influencer strategies across our social media networks and co-ordinating PR outputs and activities like press releases, interviews, campaigns & news alerts and maintaining awareness of our competitors.
What did you learn during your time at University that you’ve found really valuable since leaving?
During my Master's degree, I learnt many positive things that I am still applying at work. From an academic point of view, the Master gave me practical knowledge such as preparing presentations, public speaking, team work, preparing reports, project management skills and problem-solving skills.
What I also found valuable were career workshops and all the support I received from the Careers in Business team. They really helped me to improve my CV and to practice for my interviews.
From a personal point of view, I met really good friends there and I really enjoy working with people from different countries and cultures.
