About Chong's Career

Since graduating, what have you gone on to do? 
I was previously a K12 English teacher in China’s biggest education company, the New Oriental, for more than two years. I am currently working at another education company, Rocket Academy, as a marketing specialist. My responsibilities include social media and WeChat group management. 

Is the above what you planned to do before starting university?
I've had an interest in working in marketing for some time and am glad to be in the role I am in right now.

About Chong's Newcastle Experience

What was your favourite thing about your course?
I enjoyed the group work the most. I also liked meeting classmates from different countries, learning from them and becoming very good friends with them. 

Were you involved in any other extra curriculum activities or societies during your time here?
I volunteered at a charity called Crisis which aims to help homeless people, for three days during the Christmas period. I was also involved in the organising of the party after the midterm exam for my class and volunteered at the Go Play Holiday Club.

About Chong's Future

How do you see future technologies and new ways of working (Future of Work) affecting your sector?
I feel that online education and communication would be more prominent. An example would be an application called Zoom that my workplace uses for meetings and some of our services. 

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
I hope to become the Social Media Director in two years and be a Marketing Director in five years.
