Before gaining this opportunity, what was your experience of job-hunting?

Mixed, very competitive and often applications go unanswered.

What were your roles and responsibilities in this position?

Everything and anything! Making gin, packing, shipping, selling, attending shows, developing marketing material, and operational aspects of developing and opening a new visitor site! I even ended up in the back of an HGV lorry unloading cardboard during a storm! 

What are doing you now?

Healthcare Coordinator at Newcross Healthcare Solutions.

How did the position impact your life, professionally and personally?

Got me into working in a completely different industry, and back working after a period of time away.

What would you say to other graduates who are considering an opportunity through AAI?

Go for it!

Thanks Melanie!
