It’s not hard to see why so many employers value graduates who have studied a social science.
An understanding of how individuals think and interact, a grasp of how our society has developed and the strong analytical and communication skills these courses develop means people who've studied them are a useful addition to any business, whether in Sales, Marketing, Recruitment or another industry.
Below, five graduates, with degrees in everything from Psychology to Law, tell us about how they were able to secure a career they really wanted, and progress within it.
Take a look – all of their teams are looking for other grads, just like them, right now…
1. Alice – studied Psychology at Cardiff University
Now a Senior Programmatic Account Executive at NMPi
With one of their core values being ‘Dare to Lead’, NMPi encourages all of their employees to take control of their own projects, take risks and try new things. The emphasis their culture places on this has been something that Alice has been able to take advantage of since starting in 2015; she was able to achieve a promotion to Senior Executive within a year, thanks to regular development reviews, training days and because of the way her team empowered her to push her limits:
“I took on every challenge that was thrown on me and also took on roles that were meant for people in higher positions,” she recalled.
If you fancy a career in which you’ll be continually challenged, yet also supported to grow, then come aboard as a Graduate Account Executive and join the fastest growing area of Digital Marketing. Industry-leading training will be there to prepare you, plus a perfectly balanced working environment, with music in the office and company drinks on a Friday, can be expected too.
