By Sultan Riaz | @Riaz_MediaWhiz | Marketing Coordinator
Editor’s note: “A Day in the Life” is a regular editorial series in which MediaWhiz employees discuss the intricacies of their work.
When you visit MediaWhiz’s New York office, in the heart of the Financial District, Nandita Joshi will always greet you with a smile. Nandita, HR recruiter, has been with MediaWhiz for a little more than two months and says that she enjoys her experience working in the HR department.
Recently, I sat down with Nandita to learn what her typical day at the office is like.
Name: Nandita Joshi
Title: HR Recruiter
Location: New York City
Sultan Riaz: If you had to explain your job description in one tweet, what would it be?
Nandita Joshi: Taking an employee through the entire employee lifecycle, from recruitment to development.
SR: How do you commute to work on a daily basis?
NJ: My daily commute is fun. I commute from Astoria; it’s about a 45-minute commute to the Financial District.
SR: What is the first thing you like to do (work-related) when you get into the office?
NJ: I like to make a to-do list of all of the important tasks I need to accomplish for the day. It’s great because it give me perspective for what I need to achieve for the day and it’s a morale booster in terms of crossing those things off my list when they are complete.
SR: What is one thing you could not be without during your typical workday?
NJ: There are two things: a positive attitude and caffeine.
SR: Is there something that you do in your workday that you didn’t expect to do when you took this position?
NJ: Not at all! MediaWhiz has a startup-like feel to the company. The more exposure you get to a different tasks and different areas within HR the better it is in terms of career development.
SR: If you could sum up your typical workday in one word what would it be?
SR: What are things you like to do when not at work?
NJ: When I am not at work I like to unwind by exploring the city. I also enjoy taking long walks around the city and exploring the fall season.
