Autumn, Senior Analyst, Technical Account Manager: Swiftie, Dog Mom, Traveler
It’s undeniable that technology and the consumer experience are two of the most critical components of any successful operation (retail, restaurant, travel, etc). I wanted to work in the heart of that space, so Qualtrics was a natural front runner. I was drawn to the small size company (I came from a 500,000+ global consulting firm) and through interviewing I found I was strongly compatible with the Qualtrics work style. There is an emphasis at Qualtrics on people first, which is rare in the workplace and I wanted to be part of that and continue to foster it for others.
What was the turning point where you knew you 'had to have the job' at Qualtrics?
The turning point for me was that I liked every single person that I interviewed with. After each conversation, I found myself thinking that I would really like to work alongside that individual and eventually I realized that Qualtrics might just have exceptional people (which it does!).
What is your favorite part of your role?
My favorite part of my role is that I am constantly showing my client new and innovative ways to use the product. I love the impressed and exciting look on their faces when I demo a feature that they did not know existed! It's always fun to introduce people to a new way of thinking or absorbing data.
What's a myth about your type of job that you'd like to bust? Or about working at Qualtrics?
The myth I want to bust is that you have to know technology or be technologically savvy to take a role at Qualtrics. THAT IS NOT TRUE! I am a perfect example of someone who was interested in getting into the technology space and made the leap. The onboarding experience at Qualtrics will give you all the tools you need to become comfortable with the technology. Don't let that fear stop you from choosing a role at Qualtrics!
