Take A Break With Jim
Hi there, and welcome back to "Take A Break," our monthly check-in with a different member of the ELOQUII team as they take a much deserved afternoon break. Up this month is Jim, who goes on an adventure in downtown Columbus. We needed a coffee ourselves, so we decided to join! What have you been working on today?
Well, I’ve been working on a pretty big project to make the website responsive: that way ELOQUII looks amazing across all cellphones, tablets, and computers.
What do you do at ELOQUII, and how long have you been with the team?
I am the Site Operator for ELOQUII, and I have been here for six months now. Essentially, I am a web developer who keeps the site looking good and functioning well.
What’s the best time to take an afternoon break?
1pm because it’s a nice mental break between the morning and afternoon. My mornings are typically meetings and helping people with their computer issues while I spend my afternoon coding/working on projects.
What’s your go-to activity for taking a break?
I love taking walks and exploring Columbus. Today I am exploring the Short North neighborhood of Columbus. Also, consuming caffeine is another favorite activity of mine.
What’s your favorite pump-up jam to get you through a busy afternoon?
There are just too many to choose from! From my current rotation of songs, Portugal. The Man’s Purple Yellow Red and Blue, COIN’s Talk Too Much, Young the Giant’s My Body and This Is What You Came For by Calvin Harris feat Rihanna.
What’s your favorite afternoon snack?
Caffeine (either Coca-cola or coffee) and sour patch kids.
What do you want to cross off your to-do list before the end of the day?
I have a lot of banners to change so I’d like to get that done.
What’s your favorite thing about working at ELOQUII?
Everyone I work with is super easy to get along with. Also we have food days which are awesome! I love food, and I also love to cook/bake so it’s another excuse to try out a new recipe.
And lastly, what’s your favorite style tip you’ve learned while working at ELOQUII?
I have lost my fear of color and patterns when it comes to my wardrobe.
