I joined the company in 1996 as a copywriter for the Monster Board, shortly after it was acquired by TMP. I started at a folding table in the office that was once a church turned bowling alley turned interactive hub of TMP, complete with avocado green patio furniture and cockroaches that had migrated up from the Chinese restaurant below. In 1998, I moved into the role of Associate Creative Director, and the company moved into a hip, revamped warehouse space to accommodate Monster’s growth from small startup to major interactive player. By then, the dot-com craze was in full swing and I was given the opportunity to be a part of TMP’s interactive team. I packed up and moved to San Francisco to become one of the company’s first Web Producers, then a year later, Executive Web Producer. I visited EMEA to train TMP global teams on the web discovery process, user-centered design, and usability testing.
From there, I moved to the New York office as the Director of Development, where I managed operations for the interactive and creative teams for a year. In 2003, with my first child on the way, I moved back home to Boston and served as the project manager for the New Business group for four years. Next, I took on the role of Engagement Manager with the Employer Brand team in 2008, and today, I’m thoroughly enjoying my role as Director of Learning and Development. My career path at TMP, both department-wise and geographically, has allowed me to meet amazing people and make lifelong friends. And I’m thrilled because after 15 years here, I’m still meeting new people and learning new things each and every day.
