A Day in the Life

Who: Amanda Mandell

Position: Marketing Associate

Start Date: 5/4/15

Fun Fact: I walked the red carpet at the 58th Emmy Awards

What is your position at Silverline?

I’m a Marketing Associate and my main focus is managing our events.   

What does your average day look like?

Each day has a similar routine (minus right before Dreamforce) but each day brings something new and exciting. My days typically start with checking emails and looking at what’s scheduled for the week. Then it could range anywhere from going to check out potential venues to designing new swag or to simply finalize details of an upcoming event.   

How did you find out about Silverline and your current position?

I had just moved back home to New York and wanted to work for an exciting company in Manhattan. I searched Linkedin and came across Silverline and knew I had to apply. Luckily, they were searching for a brand new Marketing Team member and the rest is history.

What motivates you at work?

Working with extremely bright and eager people truly motivates me. Everyone is willing to lend a hand and will always drop what they are doing to assist. Working around others who actually want to learn more each day to provide the best for our clients, makes coming to work each day very enjoyable.

What do you like most about your work?

As a detail orientated person, I love getting to spend time adding all of the details to each and every event.

What are some challenges you face?

Sometimes things can be asked upon very last minute. I have had to turn around major events within 24 hours notice but that is just part of the excitement.

What new things have you learned since you began working at Silverline?

Before coming to Silverline, I had never worked with Salesforce before. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to utilize the training resources that Silverline provides and feel supported when wanting to enhance my skills.

What do you think makes Silverline a successful company?

The employees. Definitely, the employees.

What is your favorite perk?

I do love having lots of snacks, including healthy ones, getting to leave my desk to go sit in the bean bag chairs and of course the unlimited vacation. But I must say, my favorite perk is getting to go to Dreamforce with the greatest Marketing Team ever!

What is your favorite memory?

It’s hard to pick just one favorite memory, but most of my favorite moments have happened when the entire team gets together. Last year, our team went to Florida for the annual Silverline Summit. I got the chance to conquer my fear of the trapeze, thanks to my co-worker’s help and cheering. I also had the opportunity to perform an original rap that I wrote about Silverline.

What do you hope for your future at Silverline?

I really want to take advantage of everything that Silverline offers. We have a large library of learning tools that will not only improve myself professionally but also personally.

If you had a friend who was thinking about working for Silverline, what advice would you give them?

First, I 110% recommend working at Silverline and they should apply! I would tell them to make sure to ask plenty of questions about the specific work and the culture of the company. Lastly, be prepared to work hard and more importantly, have fun doing it!
