Opening up a world of possible with ICD

Today I’m a Strategic Account Executive at a digital marketing software solutions company.  When I passed my high school exams, I made my choice quite quickly to study at ICD once I’d understood that the school was one of the few to allow their students to not fix any limits, that encouraged them to fulfill their ambitions and that inspired them to think out of the box.  When I arrived at the school, the first thing that struck me was the fantastic atmosphere on campus.  Just like the other students, I didn’t really yet know what I wanted to do as a job, but anything seemed to be possible!   In particular, I would say that the various business placements I did in France and overseas were especially rewarding from a personal and professional perspective.  Between import/export in China, finance in Canada and sales in France, they really helped me find my career path.
