|Alexandra Light, 2013|
Alexandra is the Procurement Administrator at Escalate, an experiential marketing agency in downtown New York City. Her roles span the entirety of the organization, and include tracking inventory, purchasing IT equipment,coordinating company meetings, and designing and implementing the agency's intranet. She uses her CMD training everyday in all aspects of her job, particularly when assisting with client pitches, onboarding and training new hires, and coordinating company-wide seminars and summits. Life as a new hire in a fast-paced environment is always busy for Alexandra, but she says it is "the best kind of busy." Escalate is one of the companies Alex researched while writing her paper for Critical Issues, a requirement for senior CMD majors. She couldn't be happier at her current company and plans on working there for years to come.
