Event manager taps opportunity platform to upskill, hone expertise, and connect with co-workers
Looking to connect with co-workers, Event Manager Laura L. applied for an opportunity she saw on the Hitch Talent Mobility platform.
Laura was feeling disconnected from her colleagues. She found her daily work tasks repetitive and had a deep desire to build her project management skills and learn more about managing planning and execution in a test environment.
Laura learned there were new opportunities on the Hitch’s Talent Mobility Platform and decided to apply for a project management part-time role. To her delight, she was selected for the project and was excited about the learning experience!
Through this project opportunity, she learned more about technology tools, like Jira, and worked closely with co-workers that she had not met in her current role. Laura achieved a deeper understanding of project management and met coworkers with similar aspirations.
Laura plans to leverage this experience by setting up her own opportunity on the Hitch platform and will involve her new contacts in the project. From her experience, she gained insight into a range of strategic projects that the company is working on and feels more connected and engaged with her professional community at work.
