Claudia is a Business and Management undergraduate, who has just completed her year-long placement:
“The purpose of my placement year was to gain professional experience to support my degree, learn more about my abilities, and find a preferred role and industry. In February 2016, I accepted a role at Kindred RM, a start-up offering a SaaS based extension to the publishers of existing websites to benefit publishers and advertisers.
I began my placement in July 2016 as an Account Manager at Kindred RM with tasks in marketing support. As an Account Manager, I was required to build and maintain strong B2B customer relationships; maintain regular communication with customers; resolve portal issues and update client pages. Elements of marketing support were used such as monitoring and analysing of traffic data and producing email campaigns.
As a result of juggling my various roles, I was able to improve my time-management, organisational and communication skills whilst discovering roles that I hadn’t previously considered. I have taken a greater interest in the Technology industry after working at Kindred RM and plan to pursue a career in Product Management for a software-based tech company.
