What do you study?
I’m currently writing my master thesis about global online marketplaces and will graduate in the summer of 2021. I studied Service Management during my bachelor, and I’m now pursuing a master degree in International Marketing and Management at Copenhagen Business School.
What do you do at Precis?
I work as an Associate Analytics Specialist in the Copenhagen analytics team. As the title reveals I do a lot of analytics-related tasks. Setting up tracking, building dashboards, supporting clients and our internal teams with whatever tasks they may have
How has your development journey been since you joined? What’s the most exciting thing you have learnt since joining Precis?
Steep! I had very limited knowledge about analytics and tracking before I started at Precis. To be honest, I have very limited knowledge of digital marketing in general. At first, I was a bit overwhelmed (with joy) over the things I had to learn. But the resources you have available as a new employee are great, and the colleagues are knowledgeable and helpful. After a while, I started using what I learnt at Precis in my studies, and my grades went through the roof! Jokes aside, I don’t think I’ve ever learnt as much as I did during my first year at Precis.
What’s the best thing about your role?
As a student the flexibility that Precis offers is invaluable. The balance between work and studies have been great. Work-wise I love the variety in tasks and the variety in clients. It seems like there’s always something new to learn and solve. I like that you, despite being a student worker, have a lot of responsibility for projects and contact with clients.
What inspired you to join Precis?
I had known about Precis for a while and thought it seemed like a cool place, but never thought about working within digital marketing. Once that insight hit me I knew where to apply. Also, a few of the courses I took at the time briefly touched upon digital marketing. Not enough in my opinion, but apparently enough to inspire me to apply for a job.
What tips can you give to students that want to pursue a career in digital marketing?
Check out free courses and exams online. Google offers a lot of useful material. You’ll definitely learn a lot, but also will be able to put something on your CV. And don’t worry about not knowing “everything”, the industry is constantly changing and there’s no one that knows it all!
