Here are some additional fun facts about Jordin!
Before working at SharpNet, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’d ever had?
J: I’ve had a lot of unusual and interesting jobs prior to working at SharpNet. The one that sticks out in my mind the most, however, is when I worked for the Colorado Conservation Corps in high school. We spent most of the summer hand placing rocks in a soon-to-be drainage channel and rebuilding trails near our community! It was hard work, but we had so much fun and got to be outside all summer!
How did you first learn about SharpNet?
J: I first learned about SharpNet in 2014 through my then boyfriend’s dad, who worked there. I actually applied originally in 2015 but there weren’t any open positions, but Chris passed my resume on to a friend and I got a job offer from that!
How do you balance your career at SharpNet and your free time?
J: Time management is huge. I make sure that I schedule my days at work so that I can get everything done, so when it comes to my free time, I don’t have to worry about what is happening at work.
How has SharpNet helped you in your career development?
J: We joke all the time about how working a year at SharpNet is worth about 4 years of college, but in reality, that is no joke. I have learned so much in the past couple of years that it is almost unbelievable. When you first start, it feels overwhelming, but before you know it, you are able to help new hires and clients with confidence and the assurance that you truly know what you are talking about!
If you could pick one theme for SharpNet to turn into a book about the company, what would it be?
J: Maybe comedy? We are always laughing and joking about something!
Any random facts you could share?
J: I lived and worked in Ireland for 3 months.
Are you messy or organized?
J: Messy, but in an organized way.
Best vacation you’ve been on?
J: My mom and I went on a trip to Europe for my 13th birthday. We started in Paris, France, and then went on a cruise where I was able to visit Italy, Spain, and Tunis!
