"I have been able to use much from my sociology courses as they were to do with understanding how people react and engage with society."

Main details

Year graduated 2012
Occupation Social Media Executive for Generator Hotels and Hostels

"I found work a month after graduation as a Social Media Executive for Generator Hotels and Hostels. I was very lucky since it was the first interview I went for, and my degree definitely helped as working in marketing, it was very good to have a background in sociology.
 
I truly enjoy the work I am doing since we are all a fairly young and innovative team, and I have been able to use much from my sociology courses as they were to do with understanding how people react and engage with society. Working in the virtual world, having a sociological background has been really beneficial.

Some advice to current students: consider all the courses you do, making sure that they relate to each other as can therefore be easier to have an idea of what you might want to do in the future. Have a good think through in order to link the courses in one way or another, and build on the knowledge you already have. Time management is very important as well. Once in work, you will have deadlines to meet and work to prioritise. 
 
Lastly make the most of the uni years since it is all over very quickly and I miss it so much. Goldsmiths has truly been a great experience and I would urge everyone to make the most of all the activities on offer, as well as the social part of university life."
