What does a typical day look like?
As a marketing analyst I spend most of my day cleaning data and generating reports. When I'm not staring at spreadsheets I am either working as a sales admin for our distributor manager Iain Tweedy or preparing for our next Trade Show.
What led you to working at Omega Optical?
I graduated from Keene State College in the class on 2020, however I officially graduated in December of 2019. I was still living in off campus housing for the last semester of school so my advisor helped me apply to internships in the area. One of his students who had graduated just a few months before me was working in the marketing department at Omega. He got us connected and the rest is history.
Why did you chose to work at Omega over other companies?
I chose to work for Omega because it was the first interview where I didn't feel like I was acting, like I was reading a script and hoping to get the part. The people at Omega harbored an environment where I felt comfortable being myself and that is something I highly value.
What have you learned since working at Omega Optical?
In my 2 years at Omega I have learned everything from when to walk into a conference room while people are in a meeting (the answer is never), to how to use UV light to sterilize surfaces. I have learned how to enter PO's and how to generate reports in excel using Power Query tables. While all that stuff looks good on a resume, the most important thing I have learned from my time at Omega is that it's okay to make a mistake.
What is your favorite part about working at Omega Optical?
I have to say that my favorite part about working at Omega is the people I work with. When you walk the halls everyone says hello and greets you with a smile. Omega has some of the worlds hardest working individuals I have ever met. No one is ever to busy to help a teammate.
What is some advice you have for those pursuing a position in your field and/or at Omega Optical?
Whatever you do it do it with confidence. Speak your mind and be true to your word. Admit when you're wrong, and when you say your sorry, mean it. Respect is earned not given.
