To kick off November, our first Employee Spotlight is Ashley Thompson. Ashley is one of our LA girls who works closely with our Senior Creative Consultant identifying candidates for all creative roles and co-managing our social media presence. She is currently working in the New York office for the Fall bringing all of us a little West Coast sunshine and learning the ways of New York City. Want to get to know Ashley a little better? See how she answered the questions we asked her about herself and working at The Melanie Andersen Agency.
How did you get your job at TMAA?
LinkedIn! I found the job posting when I was looking for opportunities and blindly sent my resume through the website.
What attracted you about the job?
I watched the video on the website and thought that TMAA looked like a great group of empowering women to work with.
Who is the funniest person in the office?
Casey for sure! She always has a quick comeback and isn’t afraid to tell it like it is.
What has been the funniest moment since starting work at TMAA?
TMAA karaoke night! Watching Nadine and Jodi on stage together is kind of like watching The Voice. (and by that I mean sometimes the song gets interrupted by one of Nadine’s monologues ending with “I can’t even” and her asking when it was her turn to sing again every 5 minutes.)
What is the best part about your job?
Getting to learn about different industries and our candidates’ career paths.
What is the best part about living in LA?
Living 10 minutes from the beach, the weather, palm trees, what’s not to love?!
What is the best thing about getting to work in New York for a couple months?
Spending time with everyone and getting to explore the city.
What’s on your iPod right now?
Lorde, Avicii, Bastille, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, Beyonce, Disclosure, Haim, CHVRCHES, The Weekend, Jason Aldean and Grouplove.
Three words that describe you best?
