After some time, the networking and speculative approach paid off and Fidelia secured a role as an Innovation Analyst with a Digital Health Company, Pivot Digital Health, based in Oxford. As an international graduate, the company was also willing to offer Fidelia sponsorship in the form of Skilled Worker Visa, and the icing on the cake - a competitive starting salary. The role was never advertised on a jobs board or appeared on LinkedIn showing that putting yourself out there and selling yourself in the right way can gain big rewards. Building a strong professional digital presence through developing a LinkedIn profile is a great way to start and realise the power that networking can have throughout your career.
