She asked big questions about the different ways of working and the future of the industry with technology in mind. Would people still be going to live events? Or would they experience gigs through augmented reality in their own homes?
More than a student
For Theresa, there was more to postgraduate life than studying. Before starting King’s, new students have lots of questions. Having been in the same position herself, she wanted to help, so Theresa took on the challenge of becoming a student ambassador.
In this role, she worked closely with different departments at King’s, including marketing, to make sure the student voice was coming across in communications. As well as giving her something to do outside of her studies, it’s given her an edge when applying for jobs.
Finding her first role
As a student, Theresa spent time exploring opportunities in the media industry. She attended events hosted by King’s which delved into different topics, often supported by a carefully selected panel of experts.
Theresa knew she wanted to stay in London after graduating. She set out with the goal of working at a record label and reached out to different professionals on LinkedIn. She soon discovered Cantine, a global creative collective based in Holborn. She sent her CV to the creative director, who was impressed by her enthusiasm and education from King’s. Theresa was offered an intern position. After a whirlwind of a month, she became their apprentice, then soon after was offered a full-time position.
