Purpose-driven work in a challenging and fulfilling environment.
After I finished my MBA, I was looking for something I could really sink my teeth into and build over time. I didn’t want just another job. I came to Gap international for the chance to build something important, something that mattered. This business is up to something big, and I saw that I could contribute to that.
Whether you are helping to break down barriers or create something extraordinary, the work is always interesting and rewarding. I get to experience how different business and industries work on challenging problems and have a big impact along the way. It isn’t always easy, but it’s exciting. It’s work that makes a real difference for organizations and for people’s lives.
I was working at a marketing company in Chicago for two years as a research analyst, but I knew I had a strong desire to challenge myself in the work environment. I discovered that Gap International was a place where I could make a difference, be intellectually challenged, work with high-caliber executives, and develop myself.
Over the past 9 years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with executives in various industries and roles. I appreciate the ability to work in so many different aspects of business rather than be a subject matter expert on just one. I love creating partnerships with my clients and to me, our approach is unique in that we invest ourselves in the success of our clients, making their commitments our own. I can now walk into any environment and know I can create something that wasn’t possible when I walked in. That’s a skill I’ll have for the rest of my life.
I have a background in design and user experience from a digital perspective, and I came to Gap because I wanted to get back to my design roots. When I interviewed at Gap International, I saw an opportunity to be part of something special and to build something big. The company has an entrepreneurial spirit to it and that is something that I really enjoy. Over the past several years, I have pushed myself and grown in many areas far beyond what I had expected.
In my work with clients, I get excited about figuring out what’s needed to create an amazing user experience and then ultimately bringing that to life. I love seeing the end product come full circle. That’s what really gets me going. Also, since I’m able to work with all levels of the organization, I get to immerse myself in many different environments and all sorts of projects. This keeps the work fresh and challenging.
