Kerry from down under shares her career beginnings and stories about working in accounts.

What was your first ever job? 

My first ever job was a little cleaning number at my best friend’s mum’s bakery. That was back in the day when I thought a tenner for an entire Saturday’s work was an absolute win!

Why did you go into media?

Unfortunately, I don’t have a profound tale to tell on this one, I didn’t see a great ad that absolutely inspired me or anything like that. I simply chose marketing and media as a degree off the back of it being the subject I enjoyed most in a A-level Business Studies.
