Background
Have obtained BSc in Biochemistry, but decided to work in business and dreamed to have degree in UK as well as to get international experience. Was pretty interested in Renewable energy, and have done my MSc in Brunel based the research of Alternative energy.

What my job involves
I am working currently in UK in renewable energy sector. I was very excited about the opportunity as it was right what I was looking for. My role involves determining  qualification of partners, appointing resellers, product consultancy, development of sales department

What I did to get the job
I targeted specifically high-tech start-ups in the renewable energy business and found a place where my biochemistry and business degree as well as thesis in alternative energy were all in demand.It took me a month and a half to find new job. And I gladly relocated to Southampton from London for this opportunity.

What I gained from the UK experience
Working in B2B area part time has seriously helped to find my current job in UK.

My top tips for international students

  • Have a good work experience, especially needed in quantitative researchers
  • Analyse what you want to do, what there is on the  job market, and  narrow down the search to a maximum skill set and interest
