I learned about Allee Creative and met CEO Melissa Harrison when I was working for one of Allee’s clients. Allee was assisting with my then employer’s content marketing strategy and I was inspired by Melissa’s hard work and knowledge of all things marketing. A couple years later, she reached out about an opening on her team, and I was quick to jump on the opportunity.
I recently reached my one-year mark with the company, and I have enjoyed every moment of it thus far. Here are 3 ways I have grown in the past year through my daily responsibilities and interactions with the Allee Creative team:
I have been challenged to be more creative
I have always been creative, with backgrounds in art and design, but as I worked through college and “adult life,” I found I was losing my passion. Working with Allee has challenged me to be creative again—from designing visuals, writing content for every industry imaginable and helping brands build their audience. I am excited daily for the work I am doing for our clients, and I found that excitement was overflowing into my personal hobbies.
I have been challenged to be self-reliant
Working for Allee is unique in that the majority of the time, you are working on your own from your home. Melissa is always open to delegating and allowing the team to work independently, which means I have had the opportunity to learn a lot of new skills and projects. Without having my team a desk away, I’ve learned to take charge on my projects and solve problems on my own. Melissa is always open to giving advice or feedback, but she also gives us the freedom to learn.
I have been challenged to keep learning
While they make you go through years of school before you can get a degree, I’m convinced you learn the most about your field once you’re actually working in it. Melissa is always encouraging us to keep learning—whether that means sending us relevant industry articles, encouraging us to take a design course or forwarding us educational webinars, she knows there’s always room to keep growing. My role has also pushed me to learn and understand all the different industries in which my clients are working.
The Allee team’s hard work and passion to always keep growing is contagious. I’m proud to be a part of this team and excited to share in celebrating 10 years of this great company.
