Get to know your Recruiter: Kiran Naz
Tell us a little bit about what you do.
I'm a researcher at Star Anise and my work involves market research, data analyses and helping with the company's marketing team on a number of marketing projects.
How did you get into recruitment? Did you always want to work in this industry?
As a marketing major, I did not anticipate myself working in a recruitment company. My interest was piqued when I met the co-managing directors of this supportive company. Ever since I joined Star Anise, I learn something new every day about the legal and compliance industry as well as how to be a good marketer.
What are the top 3 things you love about what you do?
- Learning something every day – As a researcher, half of my time is spent gaining 'intel' about the market and helping my colleagues do research work, and I learn a lot!
- Every day is different – The downside of being a millennial would be getting bored easily. Luckily, my daily tasks are different every day due to my contributions in both research and marketing, not a single day is the same.
- Networking – Before COVID19, I managed to network with many interesting people during the events (I am definitely looking forward to be networking again soon).
What’s the biggest challenge you face in your role/career?
The biggest challenge for me would be time-management, being a part of two teams mean I have two separate tasks going on at the same time (and that too in a fast-paced recruitment industry). Having a to do list is a must for me!
How would your colleagues describe you?
Bubbly, a bundle of joy, and of course an important member of the team (HAHA)
What do you like to do to unwind outside of the office?
I enjoy binge-watching crime documentaries on Netflix, and you will occasionally spot me working out.
Random fact about yourself:
I love dying my hair in crazy colors! Blue, purple, pink, red…
