Take A Break With Nora
Welcome back to “Take a Break,” our series where we meet a different member of the ELOQUII team as they hit pause on their afternoon. This month? Meet Nora, who popped down to the NY HQ’s local coffeehouse to replenish her caffeine IV. What have you been working on today?
Today, I’ve been working on setting up a very exciting new program, which involves a lot of bothering the tech team (sorry, Jim!) and getting copy and creative approvals.
What do you do at ELOQUII, and how long have you been with the team?
I’m on the marketing team, and I focus on acquisition: aka, coming up with ways to bring new eyeballs to the website and make them ELOQUII customers, the best customers on earth IMHO. I’ve been on the team for a year and a half—it’s absolutely staggering to see how much we’ve grown since then!
What’s the best time to take an afternoon break?
3pm—lunch has worn off, and it’s right around when I need that extra somethin’ somethin’ to get me through the last few working hours of the day.
What’s your go-to activity for taking a break?
There’s an adorable coffee shop and roasting company in our office called Coffeed that is the perfect place to go for an afternoon pick-me-up. Because let’s be real, caffeinating is the motivation behind any afternoon break. And when the design team isn’t looking, sometimes I steal from their collection of fashion magazines to peruse…but they’ll never know!
What’s your favorite pump-up jam to get you through a busy afternoon?
Press play on the Hamilton soundtrack, and I’m good to go for hours. But when it’s Friday afternoon, it’s Heartbreaker radio on Pandora or bust.
What’s your favorite afternoon snack?
Luckily, the marketing team has been going on many apple-picking adventures recently, so I’ve been benefiting the fruits (har har—I know, I’m so funny) of their labor. However, when I go to Coffeed, it’s hard to resist one of their brownies…
What do you want to cross off your to-do list before the end of the day?
I must, must, must listen to some podcasts to see if we want to advertise with them. And yes, that really is work.
What’s your favorite thing about working at ELOQUII?
The energy in this office is infectious. Everyone is so passionate and excited about what they’re working on, it’s impossible not to feel the same way. Plus, free clothes that happen to fit me like a glove is a pretty great perk.
And lastly, what’s your favorite style tip you’ve learned while working at ELOQUII?
Working at ELOQUII and sitting directly next to the photoshoots has emboldened me to try new things—I’ll wear culottes before the end of the season, I swear!
