Corina Mack is a LIFE SAVER!
I feel quite fortunate that I have many things to be thankful for-one of which is Corina Mack. In October of 2022 the company I had been working at for 6 years went through a round of layoffs. Unfortunately, my team was hit, and I no longer had a job. In November of 2022 I lost my mother. I was devastated and not in a good place. I had a family, in which I was the breadwinner. I was grieving and nervous about the future, Corina contacted me on January 3rd of 2023 via LinkedIn Chat. She told me about a role with a great company and asked if I was interested. We spoke the next day. During my job hunt, I had not seen this position in my LinkedIn page, so I was really glad she had contacted me. She explained how it was a position where you were able to play with data to create a story-Right up my alley! Corina was very professional and yet personal at the same time. Because of this, I felt comfortable explaining to her that I was actively interviewing at a couple of other companies. I had a hunch that "the end was near" regarding a position for one of them. She encouraged me and stated that if I was interested, I should give it a try even though the interview process may be on the longer side. (The process ended up being 4 interviews which was about the same as most I found.)
The interview process went amazing, and I owe a lot of that to Corina. She knew the team and coached me on any topic that she thought I should bring to the forefront in conversation. She was there to answer my questions, called to say, "I'm here" and texted "Good luck" before each interview. I felt like I wasn't going at this alone which means a lot when you are going through the job search process. I am now two months into my position, and I couldn't be happier. The role is FABULOUS! I feel challenged, however the role is within my skillset and something I genuinely enjoy. She knew the company and the culture to a tee, and I cannot say how lucky I feel that Corina contacted me.
If Corina contacts you….just say "when and where" :)
