Having a career in benefits was not something I planned on right out of college or when I joined corporate America. But, I saw a chance to grow professionally and learn a field that, unfortunately, many people aren’t knowledgeable about. From there, I gained a passion for helping others understand their full compensation packages and corporate offerings.
Here’s a look at more about my role, the tech industry, and Unity from my perspective.
Why I joined
I had my eye on Unity for quite some time before actually joining because of the company’s values – Users First, Best Ideas Win, In It Together, and Go Bold – and how Unity lives those values with empathy, respect, and opportunity. I had also always wanted to gain experience in the tech industry.
What keeps me here
I was told so many things about the tech industry before I started working in it. Now that I’m here, I have to say that it’s really great to work with so many creative and intelligent people. Unity’s people push me to learn more about benefits in general and how we can continue to offer top-tier benefits that are not only aligned with what other companies in the industry have, but that also help us blaze a trail in tech.
My favorite part about my day-to-day work is collaborating with my teammates. This collaboration can take many forms, such as training each other, learning something new together, or even discussing innovative benefits that are being offered elsewhere and the steps we would need to take to have them implemented at Unity.
Advice for future applicants (in any role)
Don’t be discouraged if you apply and a recruiter reaches out to let you know they are going with another candidate. Try again in the future!
