Harminder was employed part time with a major high street retailer. This was just a part-time job to get through Christmas whilst I looked for relevant roles. I had actively been applying for roles and when doing so, I came across the name of a contact from a multinational internet search engine so I used my initiative and contacted the individual and 6 interviews later I got a job!

Harminder recognises that for this particular industry which she is now a part of, it's more about the experience related to the line of practice, albeit she was informed of this at university and didn't quite believe it. she says I realise now it is not just about getting a degree but also about the wider experiences and I feel I am very lucky to have this role as I did not have a lot of relevant work experience.
