Karen is from Singapore and started working for Focus Reports after graduating from a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford. She is 23.
“I have worked for Focus for one year and four months and have done projects in France, Italy, the UAE and Egypt. I joined the company initially because it sounded like the perfect job!”
“Working for Focus has taught me that people are very different and work in very different ways; persistence surprises people often enough that they will give you what you want; you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
“My most rewarding experience so far was conducting a full interview with a former senior minister of Ireland (as opposed to the typical prepared responses we normally receive when we meet government figures) and listening to her share her experiences and insights candidly – and then having her recommend us to a number of other companies that had initially said no to meeting with us, which was indicative of a job well done!”
