Reetta, what do like about your job?
First of all, I feel lucky to get to make full use of my education, I’ve studied media so it’s nice to get to work with photography and editing, something a bit more creative. I also like that our work is so independent, that kind of freedom is very motivating cause it tells about trust. As long as the projects get done well and on time, it is up to us to decide the rest. Everyone gets to use their imagination and creativity to reach the best results.
Jenna, you’ve done some customer projects in the US. Can you tell us a little bit about them?
My first project was in Florida, we did a photograph project for two of our customers there together with our project manager Onur. We shot for two and a half weeks and took more than 5000 pictures. We brought the whole shooting set with us to the store and the store associates took care of collecting the items for us, following the list we had prepared before the trip. The second US trip was to Idaho and that one I did by myself, our US project manager was there to meet me on the location. We shot for 6 days straight, it was an intensive week but we got great photos (2300 of them) and I was very happy with the results. Before the trip we had generated lists of the products that were missing images and provided it to the store so they knew exactly which items to collect. I really enjoy these customer projects, it’s great to get to see new places and get to meet our customers.
Aurora, for someone wanting to work in your team, what do you see as the most important qualities or skills?
When I started in this team I didn’t have previous experience from content work, so ability to learn and adapt new information has been essential for me. You need strong communication skills to interact with customers and other teams, as well as flexibility and a tolerance for quickly changing circumstances and continuous deadlines. We are all self-starters here, you need to be active and ask.
