“I started to question my skills and talent and the bitter truth is there was no quick way out but to hustle for a job.

I then decided to go to a Leeds University Business School networking event in Mumbai and spoke about my predicament. Thankfully due to the vast network of professionals at the alumni event, I landed a lot of interviews and met my future employer."

Kinjal is now working as a digital account executive for Edelman (India) and handles the digital and social activities of brands like KPMG, Belvedere and LinkedIn. 

"The notable highlight of my story is the fact that I was a University of Leeds alumna. My university brought a lot of credibility and recognition to my profile."
