The university experience at Reading is much more than just studying and earning a degree.
"In order to grow in life, you need to step outside your comfort zone. I volunteered for activities such as social media takeovers and at the University Open Days, which helped me develop my personality further."
Eliška's overall experience at Reading also helped her learn to be more proactive.
“I asked for help and got it when I needed it. For example, there's lots of help with CV preparation. Both academic tutors and students services work hard to support you where needed. I remember receiving very helpful comments on my cover letter while applying for an internship. I also received helpful interview tips from the Careers team."
Following her graduation, Eliška secured a job as an analyst with Deloitte.
"I was working as an analyst on a project under third-party risk management. My role involved looking at a mass of data, accessing the relevance of the source and information, and writing a couple of sentences for the client concerning what the article was about. I was able to assess the relevance of the source quickly, as I knew what to look for, and I was also able to correctly identify the important information from the article. It's a skill I developed while preparing for my classes and writing essays."
She now works as a senior intelligence analyst for an enterprise security risk management solutions organisation.
