Two years, I started on June 3rd, 2019. I started as a copywriter, then was a brand manager, and now advertising manager. There was some grey area in between, but we didn’t call it anything.
A lot of things. I worked at the computer information systems lab at Texas State and before that a breast cancer research lab where I developed nanoparticles for a breast cancer drug. My original major was bio-chem then I switched to economics where I focused on labor and financial economics. I got into journalism by writing for my friend’s movie blog and then covered e sport events. When I graduated, I started looking for copywriting jobs and that is how I ended up at Talentcare.
I oversee the creative for all our recruiting ads and source & screen as well as core clients who purchase job ad writing. I also build and manage our vendor partnerships with partners like Indeed, Pandora and Spotify.
It is the toughest labor market since the mid-70s during the infamous stagflation. As businesses are opening back up and everyone is trying to hire, there is a new labor movement happening at the same time. Job seekers are willing to wait for a job they really want and are confident enough to quit jobs they don’t want.
Trying to build something that people know how to use and will make their lives easier. I want to be able to make something people can use instinctively. Knowing what people want before they want it.
I just got my first passport. I am going to travel out of the country for the first time ever next year. Either Nice, France, or Tokyo, still deciding.
Some other exciting things about me – I bought a car two weeks ago, I lost 30 pounds over the last year and I am going to Vegas over Labor Day weekend.
