What do you do on an average day
After graduating, I went on to do a year of postgraduate study in Economics. Immediately after, I joined my current job working in London. My current role requires a lot of technical skills in data management, communicating with multiple platforms across the world and presenting information quickly and clearly.
What did you learn from your Physics degree?
My physics degree has helped me in all of the above and more. Even though my job is unrelated to physics, if I had the choice I would definitely do it again! The course content and staff at Royal Holloway Physics are excellent.
What things did you wish you'd known before graduating?
- The results, satisfaction and skills you get out relate to the effort you put in.
- Always ask questions. Not all departments have an open door policy (and welcoming staff!).
