HR, LEWIS journeys

Hear more from Noelle Conrad, Digital Marketing Specialist, about her journey to LEWIS.

How did your career path begin?

When I finished my graduate program, I was in a similar situation most new grads find themselves in…what’s next? I have a degree in communications and furthered my studies in cultural and creative industries but didn’t know how to start or even where to start my career.

But there was a few things I was sure of:

  1. I wanted to work somewhere with a global presence, selfishly, because I love to explore the world, and maybe I can have that opportunity at my workplace (Hello Secondment!!).
  2. I knew I wanted to explore a career in the communications industry but I didn’t have much experience in one specific area to decide which area of the industry I wanted to find myself in.

What brought you to LEWIS?

During my countless job applications, many of which I just threw out to the universe pretending I could maybe manage the job, I grew tired, increasingly discouraged and decided maybe it was time to take a new approach in exploring my options. That’s when I landed on LEWIS’ open role for “Operations Assistant.” I thought it was perfect because I would have the opportunity to see what both PR professionals and digital marketers do day-to-day with the hopes of eventually expanding my role into one of those areas.

How do you feel your career has developed at LEWIS?

As I began my role, my manager at the time was very encouraging of where I saw my career going and my professional interests. This opened the door to working on the internal LEWIS marketing team and finding that digital marketing is something I loved to do and voila! Here I am! Starting my role as an Ops Assistant and having a company that supports growth in whatever direction I chose was extremely helpful in not only determining my comfort in speaking up about things I am interested in, but also created an environment where learning new things is always welcomed.
