How has SISFU helped in my career?
- The rigorous EdExcel and University of Sunderland programs have all helped shape how I tackle my daily tasks at work now. The university taught me how to work under real pressure and increased my critical thinking ability.
This has proven true with me at work especially when dealing with unexpected issues/problems. The SISFU community also shaped how I deal with others at work. The program’s extensive group projects and extracurriculars, made me better in terms of working with my team at Caesars.
What am I currently doing at work?
- I am currently in Marketing under Special Events and Promotions for Caesars Entertainment, one of the most geographically diversified gaming company in the world. As the company owns multiple properties across the US, I am part of the team that handles designing events for them to execute. Dealing with our counterparts in these properties is my number one task, we translate our marketing strategy to event details and provide all necessary means for property to execute well beyond forecasted goals.
What is my advice to current/future students?
- Always be vigilant in finding out what is happening in your career or field of choice so that you will have the ability to recognize opportunities. Some career/market opportunities may only come once in a lifetime so better to grab it while it is there. Cultivate your ability to foresee what you want out of your career and equip yourselves with the necessary gears in achieving your goals. Being in SFU is the best time for you ponder whether you want to become a successful entrepreneur or be an expert in your craft and climb up the corporate ladder. Luck would always favor the ones who make an effort in doing things beyond their comfort zones so take risks and never be afraid to fail and learn from mistakes.
