Why have you decided to work in the tech industry?  

Tech is ever-evolving, exciting and challenging. I love marketing strategy and practicing in this space has taught me more than I’d ever learned in other industries. Businesses have a start-up, small-org culture, but tend to be on the cutting edge of trends and technology.

Challenges faced climbing the corporate ladder:

There is such as a thing as a dead-end job in the corporate world. If you’re not being challenged, if you’re not motivated by leadership and there aren’t ways for your accomplishments to earn promotions and learning opportunities, then you need to move on. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, “what’s in it for me? Am I happy and is this the right culture fit?”. The employee-employer relationship is just like a romantic one; it should be mutually beneficial with everyone contributing 100%.
