Q: Please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was fortunate to transition from a product marketing intern to a full-time employee the week after graduation. This SaaS company specialized in health insurance enrollment and benefits management. I stuck with my “bloom where you are planted” mentality and learned as much as I possibly could, got as creative as possible, and before long I had an AMA award for my first national marketing campaign! I look back on that experience now and am so grateful that I was able to be a real contributor on a “lean and mean” marketing team so early in my career. It has truly benefited me at other workplaces and undoubtedly will continue to do so in the next phase of my career.
Q: Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
There have definitely been times that weren’t smooth sailing, but I’ve had incredible learning experiences and came to appreciate my own resilience through every challenge. I’ve been blessed to work with some amazing managers and mentors who helped me hone my skills and creativity, and for that, I am forever grateful. Like many marketing professionals, I have experienced a company-wide layoff, and am hoping to have a longer tenure on the next team I join. This experience has helped me to arrive at a new and more exciting place, and I am excited to see what the next chapter holds!
Q: What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I think the true measure of success comes from a place of fulfillment on the job and general happiness in life. For me, those things often come from helping others, whether it’s through volunteerism in my community or professional development and mentorship in the workplace, both of which I count among my favorite things. To me, there’s no better feeling than being part of someone’s growth and success story, even if that means addressing challenges and areas for improvement. When you help someone cultivate the tools to deal with an issue themselves, everyone wins.
