Job: Community Lead at Smack, Inc.
Fun fact: I am passionate about human rights
Favorite part of my job: “I’m very excited to work with a startup team. They seem fun, energetic, and committed to catapulting the company to its greatest potential. At first, I was exclusively looking at faculty positions in the higher education scene. It wasn’t until I created a profile with WayUp that I not only got exposure to other types of work outside the higher ed field, but also I actually started getting interviews! I had been couch surfing this summer in Boston with a promise to my parents that I’d get employed by the end of it or else I’d return home. When the Smack Inc. posting came up, I immediately was drawn to the Community Leader position and filled the application. A few days later I had my first interview, which lead to my second, which, to my surprise, then got me employed at the startup.”
