An Insider's view of Skillsoft

What are some social events your company does?

It really varies...we've celebrated the Superbowl, Red Sox Opening Day, National Chocolate Chip Day and Employee Apreciation Day to name just a few. We also have lots of contests such as Halloween Costumes & Ugly Holiday Sweaters. Of course, there is our big Summer Outing (with unlimited Kimball Farm ice cream:)) and our Annual Holiday Party!!


Office Manager

What does your typical day look like?

No two days are ever the same at Skillsoft! One day I can collaborate on a social campaign with our Australia/New Zealand team and the next head to a conference in the US to provide live social media support. Of course, it’s not always that glamorous, but it’s always a lot of fun to work with all the different teams from around the world!


Social Strategist

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

The short answer is: transparently and often! UX at Skillsoft is part of the Product organization and as such is perfectly and uniquely positioned to facilitate converging efforts and conversations. We help connect different points of interest and intelligence that all need to be on the same page on every project and exploration.
