Winter graduation 2021: taught postgraduate prizes

This third story in the series is a reflection written by This fourth story in the series is a reflection written by Eilidh Baird, winner of the Macallan Prize in Marketing 2021.

Since submitting my dissertation in August, I have been taking time to relax and to consider what my next steps might be. I'm not 100% sure what sort of area I want to work in yet, but I'm considering marketing, advertising, sustainability and investment roles.

Recently, I have designed and am selling a range of sustainably produced Christmas greetings cards and I have really enjoyed undertaking this little project. Of course, I was also recently informed that I would be the recipient of the Macallan Prize 2020-2021, which came as a massive surprise and I am delighted to have achieved this.

I am now starting to explore job opportunities and am hoping to find something starting in the new year. I know that my studies at St Andrews will have prepared me well for whatever comes next.
