I had heard about Tigris through a friend who has been on the roster for a couple of years. She advised me to email Serena about any future head office opportunities, as I was looking for a full-time position in HR after graduating from my program. Luckily at the time, the head office was planning to move and were about to host interviews for newly available positions. I applied for the Event Staffing HR Coordinator role and met the team, later joining them in their new office space the summer of 2017.
Because of the industry we work in, there are always discussions going around our office space about executing events and staffing for them, so it’s fun to hear what is happening in different cities and being able to help plan in anyway. So, to do that everyday – it doesn’t get dull. The marketing industry is always exciting and what’s great is that I can have a medium of Human Resources and Marketing. I’ve always been a creative at heart, so it makes it easy for me to connect to both.
New York City but in the warmer months. I’ve gone when I was younger, but I was just tagging along with my parents. I’d like to experience the NYC life with sidewalk cafes, bagel carts and rooftop bars with a couple of friends. I would also visit Turkey again if I get the chance. Amazing culture and sights over there!
My reward in life is security. Occasionally I reflect and realize that I am a lucky person. Not everyone can feel secure with their job, family and relationships. Don’t want to take that for granted!
I’m not too sure if I was one of those kids who had an idea of what they would be when they grew up. I had a big interest in graphics and I self taught when I was around 14 years old, and it’s definitely come in hand. But to be a full time graphic designer would have not worked well for me!
Probably grabbing a good bite to eat and playing board games or old Nintendo systems.
I had a big TV obsession with Full House when I was younger, and I totally thought I was Stephanie Tanner (middle child, three girls in the house). So I would choose that! Especially with uncle Jesse being John Stamos, swooooon.
Knitting, haha. I have a vague memory of learning the basics of knitting. I used to be a frequent commuter to the city during school semesters, and I would catch others pulling out their yarn and needles. I’d always be like, oh, what a good idea! But never got around to doing it.
Apply every where you can and go to each interview you get called to, even if you think you’re not qualified for the job. Not only are you getting yourself some practice when it comes to the interview process, you also better your chances at landing a job since managers remember the conversations they have with applicants face to face. And if you don’t land the job, at the least you know what would work better for the next time!
