“I know it sounds strange, but mining and fashion aren’t as different as they seem,” Dave says. “As a mining engineer, I did a lot of reporting and forecasting. Scheduling 8 diggers and 50 trucks is a massive operation. I try to leverage transferable skills like structure and objectivity.” Our very own David Hall made an unexpected career switch from being a mining engineer in Australia to a Consumer Data & Market Insights Specialist in Amsterdam. Dave is a true example of a motivated self-starter, who knows that dream jobs don’t just happen, they're created.
When Dave arrived in Amsterdam, he landed a job in our VIP and Influencer Marketing team, a world as polar opposite to mining as Australia is to the Netherlands. He was soon investigating social media profiles of celebrities, tapping into his analytical experience. This drove him to what is now his current role: Consumer Insights Specialist.
