A bit about Sophie...

So what does your job actually involve? Tell us all about it

I set up, optimise and report on advertising campaigns and make sure students will only see ads which are relevant or could benefit them. I also liaise with clients, publish content on the site, send email marketing and generally get involved in lots of areas of the site.

What's the most unique part of your role at The Student Room?

Knowing that we're working with the largest student community in the world - it feels like a bit of a privilege to work and be connected with that many young people.

What do you find most exciting about working in the student & youth market?

So often younger voices aren't heard in the wider community so it's really cool to see how powerful, influential and supportive of each other they can be when given a platform. It’s great working in the student and youth market especially as we are so connected with our audience, when we set up campaigns or content pieces we usually know pretty quickly if students either love or hate it.

If you could give your student self one piece of advice what would it be?

Trust yourself and your opinions and don’t worry about what other people are doing. Always be confident enough to go down your own path.
