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.
