My name is Hilary and I’m from Limerick. I studied Food Marketing & Entrepreneurship in University College Cork before going on to complete my masters in Marketing in The University of Limerick in 2016. While my studies focused on the food and drinks industry, I wasn’t sure if I would be the right fit for the programme because I did not have a second language so I almost didn’t apply for it, which would have been a big mistake!
I have just completed my first year on the Jameson Graduate Programme and cannot express how much I have learned this year, while having a pretty good time too! This year I have been based in Head Office in Dublin working on the Portfolio and Trade Marketing team. I have had the opportunity to work on some really important campaigns for Jameson which comes with quite a lot of responsibility which has been amazing!
I just received the news a few weeks ago, that next year I will be going into my second year on the programme based in Stockholm, Sweden. This year my role has been office based, but next year I will get to see the other side of the programme by being based both in the office and the field. I am really looking forward to the next leg of the journey!
