My career so significantly has been much from clear-cut. I would under no circumstances have predicted I would have landed in a client expert services function for a electronic company!
I graduated with a Biomedical Science diploma in 2013 and worked in laboratories specialising in health care research. I understood reasonably rapidly that staying a lab technician wasn’t a superior fit – I was keen to find a people-centric purpose.
This led me to be a part of a clinical technology organization in their gross sales and advertising and marketing crew. I made practical experience in B2B internet marketing and revenue cycles but I determined I desired to attempt anything new.
