Who You Are
You enjoy solving problems and managing multiple projects. If you don’t know the answer, you will dig until you find it. You like helping people and are looking to build relationships while learning about the various functions and roles within our team. Repetition doesn’t bother you, but you can handle frequent, unfamiliar tasks as well.  Websites, social media and the people who use them are interesting to you and you like being the “go-to” person for issues and assistance. You love to plan and document everything. Being organized is how you roll. You appreciate being part of a team, but can also accomplish projects independently. Fun is in your DNA, but you work well on tight deadlines and don’t let things get to you easily.
