How does the company support your career growth?

After trying on quite a few different roles, I feel so fortunate to have found the perfect one for me. My managers have always been so helpful in making sure to elevate and help me prep for the right opportunities to provide value for the company and help me transition into a role that I love.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've had multiple opportunities to learn and grow at Khoros. I began as a Recruiter and was promoted to Recruiting Lead within a year. Having worked in recruiting a while, earlier this year, I was interested in a career shift and was supported through a transition into Sales Engineering. My career has grown exponentially since being at Khoros.
