I achieved a BCom in Management Studies (majoring in Organisation Psychology and Marketing) at the University of Cape Town (U.C.T.). The great thing is that although I now work in Marketing, Organisation Psychology has given me an advantage in handling training and development as well as understanding the recruitment process.
I have learned that your character and leadership skills are equally as important as your results in university. In my industry, university will equip you with the necessary skills and analytical thinking that is necessary to enter the company, but it is your character that will determine your success. You need to be agile, a good team leader as well as a collaborator.
I have also learned that you should not be scared of new opportunities, especially at a graduate level. I had a choice to study further or accept my job offer at P & G and I chose P & G.
