But what do you actually do at Alight?
I’m part of Alight’s Insight team. We offer an array of analytics services to marketing teams at brands and agencies. I just started my internship, so I am really getting a feel for all the different things that Alight is able to do. I work in dashboarding and am also getting exposure to Google Analytics.
You love your job because …
I get exposure to a ton of new things, so that’s always exciting and keeps me interested.
What did you do before you came to Alight?
I’m currently a student at KU, so that takes up a lot of my time. I have one semester left — I’m in the homestretch!
Marketers are your favorite people because …
I think marketers are the unique combination of creative and technical. Also, getting to work with clients in many different industries keeps work exciting and makes marketers think about problems in different ways.
What do you do when you aren’t at work?
I’m trying to teach myself how to cook. Chicken tacos are my specialty, and I always add jalapeños.
Cats, dogs or neither?
I love dogs. I have two labs: Buddy and Luna. They are amazing, and I love them.
People are always surprised to learn that you …
I have never seen any of the “Godfather” movies. I miss every reference that people make about it and just smile and nod my head.
