Here are some other fun facts about Tate!
Before working at SharpNet, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’d ever had?
T: I worked at a fast food joint in high school, which doesn’t sound crazy, but there was some crazy stuff happening there, like a co-worker straight up living in the utility room, and somehow still being late to work. I’m still working on the screenplay for the sitcom about this place.
How did you first learn about SharpNet?
T: I was cruising Indeed last April and found the listing, and then had the most fun interview ever, and then received an offer two days before I graduated from college, which needless to say was awesome!
How do you balance your career at SharpNet and your free time?
T: I take my weekends very seriously! Almost every weekend you can find the fellas and me camping somewhere in the mountains no matter the season! I always find a way to make time for the fun side of life, no matter how much my wallet complains.
How has SharpNet helped you in your career development?
T: So much! When I started here, I was a scared young “baby” with a base of marketing knowledge, and now I feel like a seasoned digital marketing expert! I really owe that transition to everyone at SharpNet—I think I have learned something critical about this job and the world from every single person who works here, and I couldn’t be more grateful for all of my colleagues here—they all make me look a lot better than I am.
If you could pick one theme for SharpNet to turn into a book about the company, what would it be?
T: A comic book. A funny superhero comic, because we have a lot of fun here, and when duty calls, we swoop in to save the day!
Any random facts you could share?
T: Uhhhh… I one time ate pizza with the band Cage The Elephant, and also almost won a rock, paper, scissors tournament.
Are you messy or organized?
T: My browser tabs say messy, but my email and calendar say organized, so I’ll leave that for you to decide.
Best vacation you’ve been on?
T: Definitely one of my Lake Powell trips with the fellas. Two boats, camping on the shore, and lots of phenomenal views!
If you could be any force of nature, what would it be?
T: An avalanche!
