sit here, typing away at my keyboard sometimes thinking... I didn’t even study any marketing at uni, nor anything specific to social media, I’ve never had a Twitter/MySpace account and only started using Facebook after I left uni, years after everyone else.

I sit here, typing away at my keyboard sometimes thinking... I didn’t even study any marketing at uni, nor anything specific to social media, I’ve never had a Twitter/MySpace account and only started using Facebook after I left uni, years after everyone else. Yet here I am B2C marketer for the world’s largest student website, The Student Room.

Fact is, when I was in my final year of university I didn’t know what I wanted to do, I know a lot of people didn’t. However I was given one pearl of wisdom that has stuck with me ever since, and is something that has become more and more prevalent in my work and people looking to do similar things. It was all about “projects”.
