Meet The Team: Interview with Marija Mijic
Welcome on board Marija Happy reading!
Marija, What did you do before craftworks? I was working at a big insurance company, but I wouldn’t be here if it was fun, you know what i mean. What prompted you to apply for this job? What about this position interested you the most? I was really unhappy with my old job and I was looking for a new job. I knew I wanted to work in a team and with people, but not with customers. The most interesting part about my position is that I'm taking on a supporting role in HR as well as in office management and I think that’s a great balance, because I'm able to be creative, to learn new stuff, it simply combines things I like in private. What does your typical day at craftworks look like? Actually there is no guide, because each day isn’t the same. Typically I get to the office first, take a seat and have a look at the agenda for the day. What in your work do you enjoy the most? Everything. I think I enjoy the most, that I love the job and that there are great people here. What behavior or personality trait do you most attribute your success to, and why? I think it's my positive mindset and I love to laugh. I think it creates a nice atmosphere when it comes to working with me, I mean I at least hope so. How do you prefer to start your day? With a BIG glass of water and fresh air, I’d say. Because I don’t drink coffee. What’s one thing you’re learning now, and why is it important to you? I’m learning what an impact a good workplace can have on your life. It’s important to me because I have the comparison to a bad workplace and how it was connected to a lot of issues in my life, for example my health. Could you tell us more about yourself? For example: what are your hobbies and where do you like to spend your time most? I think something you should know about me is that I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. When I watch the movies I almost cry everytime bc it fulfils me with a different kind of joy, and I can feel the dopamine spreading through my body. I also like to build legos and I love to read. I’m actually all about the cozy vibes at home because it’s like my safe space. I love to be at home but also like to be outside. It's kind of a 50/50 situation. What movie have you seen recently and would you prefer to watch it? Actually the last movie i've seen was orphan-first kill. I watched it at the cinema, because I love going to the cinema and horror movies as well. Especially when it is a good movie, and it indeed was. Which music is playing on your player right now? I love a lot of different genres but today I listened to soul classics. On my way to work i listened to one of Dusty Springfield’s songs called “Son of a preacher son”. 3 short questions: Office or remote? Office Tell me one place you always wanted to travel to?
