How this MSc alum landed his dream grad role

07 February 2023

Sharath Devarajan graduated with an MSc Business with Marketing degree from WBS in 2022. Here, Sharath reflects on his WBS journey, support from our Careers team and how he landed his impressive graduate role.

Warwick Business School values curiosity, openness, restlessness and excellence. These principles were proudly on show from professors, lecturers, support staff and peers alike from the day I arrived.

I was successful in securing a position as Marketing and Recruitment Ambassador for MSc Business with Marketing, which opened doors for me in areas such as admissions, business development, social media, events, as well as building my social skills.

The CareersPlus team were a pleasure to work with, and were pivotal in achieving my current role. The Careers workshops, events and 1-2-1s built my knowledge, skills and confidence, for which I am sincerely grateful.

It was with these attributes I was able to attain an interview with Arrow Electronics, an American Fortune 500 company headquartered in Centennial, Colorado. The experience I gained in mock interviews, business acumen and social confidence at WBS saw me through to land the role as Graduate Business Development Manager for Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

I’d like to extend a huge thank you to the academic team, module leaders, professors and support staff that gave me the platform to realise my true potential. Learning and growing with some of the greatest young business minds on my course has also undoubtedly evolved me both professionally and personally.

If you manage to obtain a position to study here, you are sure to excel if you are prepared, focused, and dedicated. Thankfully I was, and I’m proud to say I graduated with WBS.
