Mr. Skin Care Engineer
I am a first-generation graduate and an engineer who switched from building dune buggies to branding sports goods, to making skin care products who got a managerial position after an internship with the brand. Plus, I am a free-time guitarist who thinks he can sing.
I interned for the skin care brand for five months since I did not have a CPG or business background, after the internship I got the managerial position.
Is there a way to position this better?
