Tessa de Haas graduated with a Masters in Economic psychology, & wanted to pursue a career within Marketing. She quickly realised however that she didn’t have enough marketing experience to land her dream job! This is why she joined The Talent Institute; the ability to the gain skills & experience she needed within a short amount of time.
Why did you join The Talent Institute?
The ability to learn such a wide range of skills and gain hands-on experience within a company was exactly what I was looking for. I was searching for my first job since graduating and I needed to bridge the skill-gap between what I was taught in University & the skills needed in the real world, this is why I joined The Talent Institute.
What are you doing now?
I am currently working at Parkmobile as a Junior Online Marketer.
My focus within the team is creating new content and optimizing existing content. This includes content for mailings, landing pages, webpages, advertisements, affiliate campaigns and social media.
I have just taken a huge leap of faith and accepted a job at Lustrumfiesta, where I will be setting up their new brand, Travelfiesta. I will be based in Latin America, and after the launch, I will be solely responsible for most of the marketing there from advertising, creating content and blogs, to setting up tests and experiments. Very exciting!
What is your proudest moment in the past year?
I am proud of myself for following my dreams and taking a leap of faith by quitting my current job at Parkmobile and flying to Colombia on the 10th of July to work for Lustrumfiesta.
2 years ago I would have never imagined ever doing something like this. I always dreamt about going back to Latin America but I never thought that I would get this amazing opportunity.
It’s scary and exciting at the same time but I am very proud that I just decided to go for it…Let’s see what the future holds!
