"My degree in geography from Plymouth allowed me to get onto a place on a graduate scheme with a major DIY retailer working in store within the management team. The many skills I developed whilst at Plymouth helped me to succeed in this position, including team work, presentations, statistical analysis and time management.
Although I enjoyed this, after a year I decided to pursue my aim of becoming a teacher and studied for my PGCE. As a result of the subject of my degree and the experience in my first job, I am now a teacher of Business and Geography at Liskeard School in Cornwall. The job is thoroughly rewarding and every day I get to communicate different aspects of geography to young people of different ages. No two days are ever the same!"
