I work in advertising as a Media Executive for MediaCom. My role involves planning and buying advertising campaigns for a selection of the agencies clients. Currently I am working with the VW Group (Audi, VW, Seat & Skoda) and Universal Films. I have only been here four months, but I really enjoy my job and the company I work for as it encourages you to get involved with areas you aren't necessarily part of in order to expand your knowledge of the advertising world. 

Before working life began I was at Nottingham University where I studied American Studies which was apart from being a really enjoyable course meant I spent a year at University in New York. One thing I have found out about media is that it doesn't matter what degree you did as long as you can demonstrate intelligence and a willingness to learn.
