In this blog post we are pleased to feature Hyojin (Jinny) Kim, Marketing Specialist for Hexagon PPM division, based in Korea.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you came to work at Hexagon PPM?
I started my career at Hexagon (Intergraph) in 2003. I had started in Marketing and Sales operations, but since 2011 to now, I’m only doing Marketing work. We started with just 10 staff, now we are over 50 – I’m the oldest among Korean employees! (laughs)
I’m also always studying the field of Marketing such as Digital, Campaign etc and I think it is a very interesting field.
What’s one thing that surprised you about working at Hexagon?
I really love our Hexagon people, the Korean team and the APAC Marketing team as well. I feel that we are one big family and I would like to really thank the Marketing team members for the opportunities I get everyday to grow my knowledge in Marketing.
What is the most enjoyable part of your job?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the APAC marketing team started a new tradition for us to kick off our Monday with a catch-up session in the morning. We talk about our weekend and share interesting stories. We turn our cam on which we don’t normally do for other meetings. I hope to see everyone face to face soon.
What did it mean to you to win the Outstanding Achiever award this year?
From employees perspective, the Outstanding Achiever award is definitely motivating and it makes me work even harder.
What have you learned about yourself during the COVID-19 pandemic?
I’m not a very good cook actually. But I did try to cook for myself instead of buying food during the COVID-19 pandemic, also working from home thought me a valuable lesson in time management.
