MR career tips from the stars

From: Mediawatch

South London rapper Speech Debelle has won the Mercury Music Prize (that’s the award for the record that music snobs think you “should” be listening to this autumn) and guess what? She’s a former market researcher!

In an interview with The Mirror, Speech tells of her troubled teenage years, and how she finally pulled herself together when she stopped smoking weed and got a job in market research.

She’s only the latest in a long line of celebs who’ve used research as a stepping stone to stardom, of course. Last week it was England’s contestant for Miss Earth.

Keep the dream alive.

  • I am sure she is not the only one that market research has saved from a life of drugs and addiction.
