How Evanston ZSer Jessie Made Moves Within Human Resources

Posted by ZS on Jan 3, 2020 3:03:30 PM

ZSer Jessie spent the first three years of her ZS career in the San Francisco office before relocating to the Evanston office. She started out on the recruiting team and after five years, she began craving a new challenge.

She began to explore different teams with Human Resources and thought the staffing team seemed like a perfect fit. Before making her decision, she consulted with one of her mentors and spoke with members of the staffing team to ensure she had a true understanding of what the role would entail.

Six months later and she’s happy the took a leap of faith. “The process of learning a new role can be frustrating, but it’s also exciting and a refreshing change of pace,” said Jessie. “I’m still in the process of adjusting to my new role and becoming comfortable with feeling “new” in my role, even though I’ve spent most of my career at ZS.”

Outside of work, Jessie and her husband have two little kids, 3-year-old Roger and 6-month-old Arthur, that occupy most of her non-working time – trying out new playgrounds and looking for trucks and construction equipment everywhere they go. When she’s not with her kids, Jessie loves to cook, listen to true crime podcasts and watch basketball (Go Warriors! Go Sky!).
