Q: What was your major in college?
A: I double majored in Global Studies and Spanish at the University of Illinois.

Q: Did you have a plan to go into sales? If not, would you say sales was a good move for you?
A: I really didn’t plan on going into sales! While searching for jobs during my senior year, I was careful to find something that sounded like me on paper. I came across CDM Media, and while I did not have a background in B2B sales, I thought it seemed like a lot of fun. And I was right. The environment is fun and exciting, and there are new opportunities every day to grow as a salesperson. But more than anything, it’s been a fantastic learning experience. Not only have I learned about such an incredible and rapidly growing industry, but I’ve also developed numerous useful skills as a young, new professional.

Q: How long have you been with CDM Media? What did you notice right away when you started?
A: I’ve been with the company about 10 months. I started just two weeks after graduating! I quickly noticed everyone in the office is really helpful when you need it, which is great because I love to ask questions!

Q: You just won a trip to Aspen through CDM Media – tell us about it!
A: The Trip to Aspen was amazing! I got to bring a guest and we had a blast! We aren’t big skiers but loved spending time exploring downtown Aspen and trying out new restaurants. Aspen is so beautiful and so was the resort. It was such a nice, relaxing extended weekend! I felt privileged to have already won such an incredible trip!

Top 5 Travel Accessories

If you’re hyper-organized and a frequent-flyer like the gals from our Client Services Event Management team, you know all the tricks of the trade for efficient and stress-free traveling! In case you’re not, we have broken it down to the top five most valuable travel accessories, according to Event Manager Kelsey Freese.

1. Portable phone charger: “We always carry fully-charged portable phone chargers with us to the airport. A dead phone is not an option! Plus, they barely take up any space in my purse or carry-on.”

2. Something cozy: “A scarf that doubles as a blanket is the perfect item to keep you comfortable and warm in the airport and during the plane ride.”

3. Vitamin C: “I always make sure to not only drink Emergen-C before traveling but I pack a few packets, too! It’s inevitable one of us usually gets sick after travelling but this helps keep us healthy and moving.”

4. In-flight entertainment: “Before I head to the airport, I double check that I have my headphones and my iPad. The other girls bring their books, too. We make sure we have something to keep us entertained.”

5. Refillable water bottle: “If you’re an avid traveler, you’re probably spending quite a bit of money on water bottles and snacks. I always have an empty refillable water bottle in tote. After security, I fill it up and avoid purchasing a bottled water. I bring my own snacks, too!”
