Tell us more about what you do.
I spearhead the cyber security service offering and product portfolio for ARIM Technologies. I’m responsible for creating new sales campaigns, researching markets, finding new market opportunities to enter, and creating business development strategies to expand the company’s existing markets.
Why did you choose to study business information technology in polytechnic?
I've always been excited about technology, but I also knew that I needed to be familiar with skills that are transferable. DBIT attracted me because it offered fundamental IT modules that lay the foundation for me to branch out to various IT specialities in the future. It also offered essential business skills that are relevant.
