Gardian of the Month: Jenny Hill
Q & A with Jenny Hill, manager for social communications at Event Garde.
Q: Learn: Let’s say you’re studying for a big exam. Are you a crammer, or do you like to plan ahead?
A: I’m a plan ahead crammer. I schedule time to study right before the exam – say, the last two days before the exam. I find that I can apply myself to the task at hand more when I’m under a time crunch.
Q: Network: Social media or face-to-face? Which form of networking is better and why?
A: I’m not a natural networker. As an introvert, I find it easier to network through social media – at first. I enjoy building a relationship before actually meeting someone face-to-face. For me, this helps soothe my shy and nervous natural state. That being said, I do enjoy the experience when I finally get to meet someone in person.
Q: Transfer: What resources/tools do you find most helpful in helping you retain knowledge?
A: I am a hands-on learner – anything that I can learn through actually doing it will have a significantly higher retention rate. I suppose, then, that the tool would be my hands.
Q: Please share with us you can’t live without.
A: If I’m being totally honest, it would be Google. If I’m working in a program and need to find out how to do something, I’ve found that asking Google is a huge time saver. There’s a whole wide world out there and I’m not afraid to ask it when I need help.
Q: Would you rather swim in a pool, lake or ocean…and why?
A: A pool 100 percent! I’m not a fan of the unknown, and do not appreciate something unexpected touching me – be it seaweed or otherwise!
