How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I was hired as a recruiting coordinator and very quickly moved into full-cycle recruiting. That was possible because of the team. Our VP of Engineering took the time to train me himself on hiring for the Engineering roles. After 18 months I was given the opportunity to work on marketing projects and then made the move fully to that team.
