Sales Account Manager
After three years of working as a retail manager and spending the 4th quarter, holiday season working instead of with my family, I decided it was time to get a ‘normal’ 9:00—5:00 job! (After all, working on Black Friday is not nearly as fun as shopping on Black Friday, right?!) On December 24, 2010, I vowed to myself that I would be in a new career within the next year! (Thank you, CotterWeb!)
In all honesty, I don’t remember applying for the Sales Account Manager position at CotterWeb Enterprises. I received a follow-up call to my application though and figured, “Why not?!” From the first interview, I was completely intrigued with this industry and have been more than thrilled with my decision to change careers since. Although this is a different field entirely, the skills I learned in my prior job have transferred well into my current position as a Sales Account Manager. Along with that, the ability to strategize and build client relationships is something I love to do. This has been a great fit for me—from the position to the company—and I can honestly say that I enjoy coming into work. It’s not too much of a job when you enjoy it, right?!
Designers always hear …”Your job must be fun.” And in my case its true! My job (I like to consider it a career) is fun. I get to draw, play with colors, fonts, photos and whole lot more. Who wouldn’t want to do that all day? Okay so there are some people out there that would disagree.
I started as a graphic designer in 1998 and did that for 5 years. Then I decided that being a graphic designer was fun but I felt the need to expand and grow. I went back to school for my BS in Interactive Media Design and then became a Graphic/Web Designer. As an in house designer for CotterWeb I get to work on a variety of different projects, such as Web Site Graphics, Emails, Banner ads for web and mobile and the list goes on. The work is very rewarding, not only when the clients like the creative but as a whole when the company does well, it’s acknowledged; it might come in the form of thank you/props or treated to appetizers for lunch. I would hope that if you have a career it is with a good company that you are glad you work for, it makes going to work that much easier.
Member Services Representative
Growing up in the frozen suburbs of eastern Minnesota, people have often told me that I march to the beat of a different drummer. Of course this only made me curious where this other drummer was, and why everyone thought he was so great!
With a strong customer service background and a degree in Psychology, I've always thought of myself as a problem solver. I find no greater joy than being presented with a new challenge and being given the opportunity to find an imaginative, unorthodox solution. For this reason, my position at CotterWeb has always been a natural fit. Here, I am continually presented with unique, challenging scenarios, where I get to flex my creative muscles to deliver proactive resolutions for our Members. Every day I use the tools at my disposal to provide clear, satisfying results.
As unofficial trivia master of CotterWeb, when I'm not assisting our Members, I can be found researching random bits of information about my favorite movies, books and anything else that strikes my fancy. A life-long amateur writer with big aspirations, I spend my free time crafting fantastic worlds and comical characters that will hopefully someday grace the shelves of your local bookstore.
