In Charlotte’s second interview, once she’d had a few interactions with us in various forms, I asked her the same question that we asked everyone in the application process: Why do you want to work at Pomegranite?
She said it was the first time she’d had an interview that didn’t feel like an interview. It was just human.
We’re so intentional not just about our company culture but also about the way we approach the hiring process, so it’s so lovely when that’s reflected back at you. We felt the same way about Charlotte – she was someone who clearly had the skills for the job, but also someone you could have a chat with. You could imagine saying to her, “I’m in a bit of a bind, could you help me with this work, please?”, or, “Why do you think there was such backlash over the remake of Footloose?”
We look forward to watching her Pomegranite journey – and in the meantime, here’s a little Q&A to help you get to know her too.
Can you describe your experience of Pomegranite thus far in three words?
Good-humoured, genuine, warm
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was younger, before reality set in, all I wanted to be was a bride. My first real passion, however, was photography and pursuing this was always a dream of mine.
What do you find most intriguing about social media right now?
I am drawn to social media because it offers individuals a creative outlet. People are so innovative and creative; I enjoy seeing how the world is perceived and portrayed in different ways. I also love how you can virtually travel the world through various platforms.
Tell us one surprising thing about you.
I would say one thing people find surprising about me is that I enjoy embroidery. I started playing around with a needle and thread during lockdown and taught myself all the different stitches. I have only been doing it for about two years but would like to say I have quite a knack for it. I have found it to be a very motivating, relaxing, and rewarding hobby.
P.S. Also! Everyone lost their minds over the fact that Charlotte has a bunny (a girl bunny) called Humphrey. I know.
