Mondays can be rough. But here at 1World Online we’re starting the week off right with our new Employee Spotlight series. Kickstarting our motivation this week is Jackie Norgord, Research Project Manager at our San Jose headquarters.
Let’s start simple. How long have you been with 1World?
I’ve been with 1World since February 2013.
So what’s a day-in-the-life like as a Research Project Manager here at 1World?
My day begins with a team meeting. Team members quickly check in and update each other about projects and goals. Then, I usually focus on communications with vendors and clients; I like to start the day with an empty inbox. Then, my attention is on to a cycle of projects: research related work, tutorials, and email campaigns.
What’s the most rewarding aspect of your work?
I like to break projects down to their component parts so that project tasks are well-defined and easy for collaborators to envision. I also like to share my knowledge and insights with my team members.
What is your favorite “tool” to get your job done?
Google Drive is my world. It is where I spin my web of docs.
Do you have a favorite “hidden gem” in San Jose?
My favorite Thai place is Hanuman on San Fernando, just around the corner from our office.
What do you do when you’re not at 1World?
I like to cook amazing meals with my family. I love the Opera and I am passionate about travel.
Last but not least, what’s your Monday motivation?
Our all-hands meeting on Monday afternoons gets me jazzed for the rest of the week.
