Every week a board member or consultant will talk you through a small biography, and more importantly, a little insight into their life, what parts of their agenda are devoted to time, and what parts aren’t.
This week it’s my turn, and I’ll give you some insights into my life and my role as the consultant of TIME. But first, let me quickly introduce myself!
My name is Marit Theunisse and I am 22 years old. I grew up in Oss, but during my second year at Tilburg University I moved to Tilburg. At the moment, I am following the masters Marketing Management and Marketing Analytics, after finishing the bachelor International Business Administration in 2020. During my bachelors, I went on exchange to Milan, Italy for four months, to follow courses in marketing, psychology and leadership. However, next to all the theory learned in the past four years, I would like to gain some more experience in business life to apply my knowledge to real life. This is why I became a consultant at TIME! This opportunity makes me able to get to know people and learn more about new cultures. Besides studying and TIME, I work in sales at a telemarketing firm. Furthermore, I like to go to the gym, travel, sing, and I like to do fun things with my friends.
The core task of being a consultant the last few months were doing acquisition, asking companies whether we could be of any help in their international development. In the upcoming months, conducting desk and field research for the acquired companies will be my main job. In the past few months, I have already experienced personal development in the field of communication, which is very important since your work as a consultant lets you come into contact with people in all positions in a firm. That these firms are in different sectors makes the work even more interesting and fun.
If you have any questions about being a consultant for TIME or just general question about our organization, you could always send me a message on LinkedIn!
Until next TIME!
