Did you have a particular role in mind when you made your degree choices and why?
No, not at all. With my A-level subject areas I considered Teaching (everybody does), Computer Science and Business Studies. I settled on an Honors Degree in Business with Computing at the University of Ulster in Coleraine and it was during my time there, I knew my career path was going to be IT. I really enjoyed the practical aspects of the degree. I loved creating and breaking code. I also loved my time at university so I continued to study post-degree and completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Web Information Systems at the University of Ulster in Jordanstown. When considering employment, a graduate position came up in a software testing role – I had no knowledge about the role but I took the chance!
