THE GIST: JPtv decided to sit down with Lua Emilia, Bilingual Marketing Communications Specialist at Pet Valu. Emilia`s interest in marketing sparked after a chance encounter with a marketing course while doing a degree in Bio-Chemistry and Molecular Biology. From there she never looked back!
We spoke in-depth with her about working in marketing at Pet Valu, and what it takes to break in and build a successful career in the industry. She also gave some cool insights into self-branding and how the industry today differs from the days of Mad Men! Sit down, kick off your shoes, and enjoy!
