PhoenixTeam Employee Spotlight Graphic – Melissa v2

Melissa’s perfect day starts with a good cup of coffee and brunch. Reading, music, and spending the day at the beach with friends until the sun goes down is at the top of her list of favorite things to do.

Albert Einstein once said, “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” This quote especially resonated with Melissa when she began her job at PhoenixTeam. For her, working at a company that is fully remote was not something she ever thought she would enjoy. Melissa was concerned there would be roadblocks to fully connecting with her co-workers but has found that it was easier than she thought. “Through projects, virtual coffee breaks, and happy hours, the atmosphere is filled with team spirit and a sense of unity that I did not think could be reached in a remote environment.”

Melissa’s advice: “Find an opportunity within the field you are passionate about, and get a better understanding of what is involved in the day-to-day; it may pleasantly surprise you.”
