Area of expertise: I work closely with the marketing team where we brainstorm, plan and execute various marketing strategies! On the side, I also provide support to the recruitment consultants which includes database management and various administrative tasks.
Background: After graduating with a Diploma in Commerce, I was stuck at an impasse where I struggled with my career choices. My love for math and numbers pushed me towards the finance but at the same time I knew that I wanted a job that would allow me to express my creativity. Hence when I learned that Funds Partnership Asia was offering a role where I would be part of a marketing team in the funds industry, I knew that would be too good of an offer to pass up!
I now get to explore my creativity as I get to come up with various ways to capture the minds of the people in this niche industry with the content that we put out. Although there are days where we tire our brains out as we squeeze every bit of creativity we have in us for content ideas, it’s always fun to see the work we’ve on for weeks or months finally go live. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of that feeling!
Career Advice: Only you would know what’s good for you so always trust your gut!
