After getting into Durham University, I had many opportunities to take part in career planning activities, such as the London tour, career development lectures and alumni panels. Those activities greatly enhanced my skills and I believe my study experience at Durham helped me to be competitive in the job market.
On graduation I was offered a position as Key Account Manager with P&G China.
