The Interview

What’s your title at Credit Karma?
Talent Acquisition Coordinator

Describe in 25 words or less what you do.
I build teams. I helped Credit Karma double in size this year, and I’m about to do it again for 2014!

How long have you worked at CK?
I’ve been at CK for almost a year! Time flies!

What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
Nerf gun wars! People fear me and my Nerf gun at work.

What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
I don’t discriminate.

What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
I was a Red Bull Wings Girl in college…for a very short period. I also love speed. I’m “that” jerk on the road…always weaving through traffic.

What was your worst subject in elementary school?
U.S. History… I was a miserable 4th grader.

What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
I have a photographic memory. For instance, I can’t remember street names for the life of me, but if you show me the directions once, I’ll be able to navigate to my destination with ease.

If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
I would have to choose mind-control.

What’s your best credit/money tip?
Don’t spend beyond your means. Track your spending and you’ll be able to distinguish the necessities from the unnecessary.
