Not only was she supporting her family, but she was also helping her children adjust to remote learning, all while continuing her education outside of work. Her role at Yelp helps her have a healthy work-life balance and offers the support she needs to keep growing professionally.
Want to know what it’s like to work at Yelp? Keep reading to get the inside scoop from Kimberly M, Mid-Market Client Partner at Yelp. “Only at Yelp can you sit in the same seat and table without a degree, but tons of life experience. Yelp not only gave me an outlet to grow but allowed me to determine how fast that growth happens,” says Kimberly.
Q: Tell us about your journey at Yelp
A: Yelp is the only place that allowed me to create my own path for growth and work towards a promotion at my own pace. I started as an Account Executive in Local Sales. Then, I was part of the NYC landing team for Franchise sales. From there, I became a Mid-Market Account Executive, and finally a Client Partner.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working from home? Any tips to be more productive?
A: Being with my kids is what I enjoy the most. It isn’t easy doing remote learning and working from home. I am HYPER-organized and that’s the ONLY way I have been able to be successful with this new normal. I schedule EVERYTHING in my calendar from meetings with clients to remembering to schedule doctor’s appointments for my kids, to scheduling furniture pick-up time, to blocking time for client outreach, and time to complete my homework.
Q: What happened during your best day at work?
A: Working from home while being in school myself and juggling remote learning with my kids isn’t easy. I really felt low because I was stretched thin. To be recognized as one of the top-performing Mid-Market Client Partner reps was epic. Sure I wasn’t in the office to enjoy the moment with my team, but sitting at my dining room table while my youngest was in her class meeting, and to see that small trophy of recognition was priceless!
