My name is Caroline and I am a Senior Manager Technology at Publicis Sapient in Munich. Looking back at how my professional life started, who would have thought that I would develop a career focusing on Salesforce at Publicis Sapient? Originally, I am from the UK and studied German and History — nothing that would lead to a career in technology, right? But it always turns out differently from what you think.
How I started my career in technology
After I completed my master’s degree in International Business, I started working in financial services in London with a strong focus on marketing and project management. During a 12-month internship in Germany, my desire to work and live permanently outside of the UK grew. Salesforce Marketing Cloud experts were in demand back then as they are today. I started working in a tech company in the hotel and metasearch domain in Düsseldorf. It provided an amazing startup learning environment where I could deepen my practical Salesforce knowledge. However, after 3 years, I was ready for a new challenge and I decided to divert my career towards consulting. So, I headed South to Munich and started at another company as a Salesforce consultant. During that time, I knew someone who was working at Publicis Sapient, who shared some exciting insights into the culture of the company. Previously, I had missed working with people from different backgrounds and cultures. Thus, I am very happy to have found this again here. We are a global community of diverse and open-minded people with a strong workplace culture.
