Day to Day

Every day is different in my world! One day I could be welcoming people to the company through orientation. The next, I might be writing training guides or teaching existing associates a new system or skill. I also get to travel across the country to train different groups on job skills and career development.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Look into schools that have well-rounded programs. There is a lot of emphasis on technical fields right now, but a good foundation in the humanities can take you very far if you know what to do with it! Take full advantage of advisors and career counselors, and jump at every opportunity. Even if it might not be exactly what you're looking for, think about where that opportunity might lead you 2-5 years down the line. At the very least, everything you do can be turned into a learning experience.
