Sales and Marketing Manager, Chistodoulides Bros
Why did you choose to enrol in a CIM programme?
Having missed out on the chance of going to college after graduating from school, I began working as a salesperson at Christodoulides Bros. I soon realised that working in the Sales department was something I thoroughly enjoyed and felt the need to broaden my skills and enhance my career by gaining a formal education qualification. I asked around and everyone recommended studying at CIM – and I soon came to see why!
How, if at all, did your studies help in furthering your career?
I could not have gained a promotion without my degree from CIM. Precisely because CIM has such a good name in the market, Christodoulides Bros offered me a promotion immediately after my graduation. My studies at CIM and my hard work have now paid off as I am presently the Sales and Marketing Manager of the company.
At CIM you had the chance to be taught by in-career professionals. Did you find that you benefited from their expertise?
All the more! CIM lecturers are all familiar with the subject that they teach and it was greatly helpful for me as a student that they combined excellent knowledge of the theoretical aspects of the subject with solid, practical knowledge of the market. This is what separates CIM from other tertiary institutions on the island and what makes it so distinctly competitive.
Looking back at your time at CIM, what, if anything, do you remember most strikingly?
What I remember strikingly from my time at CIM is how demanding the course was, yet also how rewarding the whole experience was. For me, I’d urge anyone to study at CIM because it offers the chance for high-quality education, with a combined emphasis on theory and practice, and because the course is designed in such a way as to facilitate in-career individuals.
