Two words come to mind when I think about my experience in Market Gravity: time and creativity.

I came into Market Gravity for work experience as a video editor-in-training, which around a month later I was offered an internship. I’m still doing that internship. If I thought time was precious in the beginning of my experience, that feeling was emphasised once my internship began.

Time management became the most important thing in staying on top of things. And being on top of things needs discipline and creativity. This also gave me valuable insight to how the team works.

People underestimate the use of creativity. Whether you are a consultant, in finance or in design, creativity is applicable everywhere. It could be thinking up a better and faster way to meet a deadline (which Market Gravity are amazing at) or forming a unique solution for a new project. Market Gravity being a hybrid between a business consultancy and UX design, creativity has an even bigger role.

Being creative goes beyond the creative industry. And that’s what I appreciate the most about Market Gravity. They have talented people working for them that come from all walks of life and I think that’s what makes Market Gravity thrive.

I’ve had the opportunity to get involved in projects that allowed me to go beyond just video editing, which seems to me a good way to get good at something. You need to be familiar with the stuff around it, and the stuff around those, like a never-ending learning process.

Being in the middle of changing industries—which is very challenging—Market Gravity gave me a chance to do that. They are helping me head in the direction I want to go, at the same time picking up skills and lessons, which can only make me better at what I want to do.

With the increasing speed, technological advancements, and diversification, one cannot remain 2-dimensional about their career path. And I thank Market Gravity for giving me the opportunity to begin and change mine.
