“Expose yourself to as many things as possible. Try lots of different jobs when you’re a student – it doesn’t matter what. But remember, an exciting life cannot be found in job advertisements – you’ll only find an exciting life by meeting new people out in the real world.

“I’ve never hired a person with a “straight” CV for my business – I prefer people coming from backgrounds in Physics, Mathematics, etc. They tend to have seen and done more. So go and enjoy the world, expose yourself to new things, keep thinking, and stay professional. At some point in life, you’ll end up in a job you could not have envisioned before.”
