Graduate Interview: Laura McCarthy


Laura McCarthy graduated from our Certificate in Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Operations in 2018. Prior to the course, Laura had no experience in the pharma industry. She had been managing equestrian centres for a number of years before she decided to register for this course on the recommendation of her uncle who had also studied with Innopharma Education. Laura had three job offers before sitting her final exams and she is now a qualified Process Technician in Amgen. Listen to Laura’s podcast below with Springboard+ where she discusses her motivations behind doing the course, her experience returning to education and her success since graduating.
