What’s Happening in September with Rebecca Miles, Senior Account Executive Touchdown PR
What attracted you to joining your current company?
What attracted me most initially was the exciting global growth of the company. Especially because working with Touchdown offered me the opportunity to work across the globe, either in our US office or in the EMEA regions. Another big thing for me was the positive company culture we have here, one that nurtures individual growth at the same time as promoting a “one-team-one-dream” attitude. This is something that shone through clearly, even during my initial interviews with the team.
What gives you the most satisfaction in your job?
Simply knowing that my teammates can rely on me to get the job done, and the payoff when we achieve the common goal we were working so hard towards.
What advice can you give to individuals looking for jobs right now?
If you read the job description and it sounds exactly like you, even if it is an industry or job title you never considered before, you should definitely take the leap and go for it. When I graduated from my degree in creative writing, technology B2B PR wasn’t exactly my next natural thought. But, when I read the qualities of the individual they were looking for in the job description, I knew it was a perfect fit and would play into my strengths. I really haven’t looked back since!
What are you most looking forward to most this year?
Christmas! I love Christmas.
What’s your favourite brand?
Ikea. It’s a huge brand that’s always been ahead of the game, not only did it basically invent the “retail experience”, it’s also been consistently invested in sustainable operations. Also, the meatballs.
What music makes you feel most creative at work?
I don’t really listen to music at work as I like to be part of the office buzz, but I tend to unwind after work with cheesy upbeat throwbacks. Think “Katrina and The Waves”.
What quote inspires you the most?
“The best way out is always through” – Robert Frost. It’s simple notion that I often repeat to myself if I’m ever feeling overwhelmed by a daunting task ahead of me.
