Orlando Parfitt, Yahoo! UK Movies Editor, known famously or rather infamously for that Harrison Ford interview (see http://www.bbcamerica.com/anglophenia/2013/10/british-reporter-has-awkward-moment-with-harrison-ford/) gave the students a snap shot of his career path, starting out as a ‘workie’ for Hotdog and eventually working his way up, through his experience and word of mouth to Yahoo! Students also heard from Nada Abdelnour, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Personalization & Targeting, EMEA at Yahoo! of how her career started in the world of banking and moved into advertising in target markets.
Yahoo! is obviously firm in its resolution to stay ahead in the game, especially with Marissa Mayer, former executive of Google, now CEO of Yahoo! Thanks to all at Yahoo for arranging such a thought provoking and inspiring visit.
