Each month one of our incredible consultants is “chosen to” receive recognition because they truly embody our core values—Accountability, Partnership, Drive, Curiosity, and Transparency—with their clients and our consultant community. I get the honor of asking them a few fun questions beyond their daily work deliverables! Meet Karen Dierickx, our February consultant of the month.
Q: What is your go-to Karaoke song?
A: In the essence of giving back to humankind, I refrain from singing of any sort!
Q: What is one word that your best friend would use to describe you?
Q: What do you love about working with your client?
A: This is my first consulting role and I was a bit hesitant to accept a “temporary” job. However, luck was on my side as Projectline found me the perfect role with an awesome client. I am proud to refer Projectline to anyone looking for their next career adventure.
Q: From what location do you work (Mostly home? Mostly client site? Blend?)
A: 99.9% work from home. This is a new experience for me. I’ve been in this role for about seven months and am still trying to find a balance. My partner in crime Aly, is located in the UK and we meet every morning to closeout her day and start mine. Some days I find myself in the same sweats I put on for our morning calls as when I log off from my day in the evening.
Q: In honor of your being Consultant of the Month, we would like to donate $250 in your name to the organization of your choice! Which organization would you like us to donate to?
A: The Colorectal Cancer Alliance. March is National Colorectal Cancer awareness month. I have chosen this organization because there are staggering new statistics on womxn and young womxn especially, being diagnosed with colon cancer and we need to create more awareness for prevention. On March 6 and throughout the rest of the month, join me in my efforts to spread awareness by dressing in blue.
I’m personally impressed with the dedication our consultants have to their work, but also to the wider world. If you know someone like this, please tell them about Projectline and point them to our career page. We are always hiring!
