New Member Spotlight – Jessie James

James, Jessica Headshot

By: MPI Ohio | Jun 19, 2019

Jessie James 
Bowling Green State University Information Technology Services

Who are the most important people in your life?  My parents and grandmother. They have always supported and encouraged me to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be.
Who do you work for and what is your role?   I am a student employee at Bowling Green State University Information Technology Services (ITS) & an event planner for the BGSU Library (UL). I have worked for ITS for three years and I help with hardware support, maintain labs, fix printers and WiFi issues. As a practicum this semester I am an event planner in the UL, as well as, working for ITS. I have planned and executed events, worked on a search committee, and planned social media marketing strategies. 

What is the best thing about your job?  What I enjoy most about both of my jobs is interacting with people. I love learning about other’s stories and, if given the opportunity, making their day a little bit brighter. 

What are the 3 most important skills you use at work? Creativity, open communication, and out of the box thinking

What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry?  Just be yourself and be true to who you are. Bloom where you are planted. And never be scared to try something different from your norm. I’m just beginning my career in this industry myself! So I would love to hear any advice from those reading this.

What super-power would you love to have to help you do your job better? Telekinesis, so I would be able to move objects with my mind and give me the power to do multiple projects at once.
