Mom Corps YOU Featured Job Seeker - Sharon B.

Name? Sharon B.

Where are you from? Encino, Ca. (Los Angeles suburbs)

Why did you join Mom Corps YOU? I joined Mom Corps YOU to help me find a flex role that allows me to utilize my professional skills and be a valuable team player while balancing my time as my children’s primary care giver.

Why are you currently looking for a job? I am a contract marketing specialist and event planner who recently wrapped a project and am looking for my next client/role.

What are your flexibility needs? My preference is to work from my home office while my children are in school (9am-2pm).  With availability for conference calls/email in the afternoons as needed.  I’m also open to travel and love to go out on the road for events and client meetings.

What's your work/education background? I have worked in the events/marketing industry for more than ten years, the last seven in various roles as a Microsoft vendor. Some of my Microsoft projects have included selling sponsorships, full concept planning for CIO Summits (including content, speaker management, ancillary, budge, social media, etc) and smaller executive level meetings and conferences.

I consider myself a unique mix of being tech savvy and understanding the tech industry while being firmly grounded in the events/marketing/public relations world.

What would be your dream job? My dream role would be as a conference/meeting planner where I can assist my client/team put on the best event possible.  From conceptualizing the event to being onsite, I love being a part of the entire event process.

What should a potential employer know about you?  I am fully bilingual (native) in English and Spanish. I spent six years in the Pacific Northwest and am very familiar with the area and various companies which are based there and their respective cultures. I have a passion for travel, food and beverage and am an excellent multi-tasking, creative, out-of-the-box thinking team contributor.
