After a recent (and unexpected) shake-up in my employment status, I now find myself back in the job market. I was doing Retained Executive Search as an Associate at a boutique national retained search firm, and before that was in the IT Recruiting space (#FirstJob). I’m taking this head-on as an opportunity to go out and explore my options; I want to do something in a field that I am passionate about, and, like many of you, I am extremely passionate about cars and the auto industry.
I am currently based in MN but I think this is an awesome opportunity to try a new place for a little bit (if anyone has done this/currently is doing this, would love to hear from you!), I turn 24 in 2 weeks, and I have a dual degree in Accounting & Entrepreneurship from Washington University in St. Louis. I am not interested in going into accounting as a profession, but other than that am open to any and all suggestions for jobs in the automotive/related industries where I can best leverage my skills and experience.
I’ve always had a knack for being able to connect/communicate with people, so I’ve gravitated towards customer-facing positions so far in my professional life (sales & marketing intern at a start-up, Management Trainee internship at Enterprise, recruiting/executive search), but again am open to all suggestions. I have scrolled through LinkedIn and have seen some interesting positions within the auto industry, but would love to open it up to suggestions from the Oppo community. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and ideas!
