Q&A with a Service Management alumna

Emily Knight

Meet alumna Emily Knight who studied the Bachelor’s programme in Service Management at Lund University, 2016-2019.

What have you been up to since you graduated and what do you work with today?
Since August 2019 I work as a researcher at Poolia in Stockholm.

What does a typical day at the office look like?
No two days are the same! I might work with customer meetings, job advertisements, selections, telephone interviews, interviews or gathering references.

Have your studies at Lund University been beneficial for you? In what ways?
Yes, they really have! I studied an interdisciplinary programme, which presented me with many perspectives. The analytical and strategic ability one gains from the programme has really been valuable in my work. The ability to see perspectives from a comprehensive level and, at the same time deep-dive in the details is something that I do in my job every day when I meet with clients and candidates.

Do you have a favorite memory from your time at Lund University?
My favourite memory must be the graduation. Not just because you are celebrating having completed your studies at the university, but also because you stopped for a moment, hung out and celebrated with all the amazing people you’d gotten to know during those years at Lund University.

Where do you see yourself in five years?
I hope that I will have had the chance to try many different things and that I am at a workplace where I feel like I can evolve. If there is anything I have learned from the Recruitment Industry, it’s that there are so many incredibly fun jobs, and you never know where you will end up.
