Introducing Myself and Tips for Onboarding New Hires From a New Hire

Hi all!

I'm Elle, a new member of the IMPACT+ community and the new digital marketing and content manager for Enrollment Builders. I made a short video introducing myself and sharing some tips that helped me during my recent onboarding experience. My supervisor is a member of the IMPACT+ community and this community shaped some of my onboarding experience. I can't thank everyone enough for helping to make my onboarding at Enrollment Builders great!

Elle Spears  thank you so much for sharing this! Question on your animations, did you make those yourself??

I used Canva to pull in assets, then added animation in that system. Canva has a lot of animation options and preinstalled gifs. Canva can take simple graphics and elevate them. Although, I am capable of doing all this in Photoshop.

There's a ton of surprising features and assets in it. Free b-roll, music, animations, etc.

We're so excited to have you  Elle Spears ! I know  Jennifer Goode was really excited to get to share and crowdsource some ideas as you got started. Seems like you are off to an amazing start and I can't wait to see you blossom here in IMPACT+!

Also, amazing video!  Lindsey Schmidt keep an eye on this one, she's bringing it! 

Also,  Natalie Davis , Carolyn Edgecomb , and Bob Ruffolo   some great insights here regarding onboarding based on what we've been recently rolling out.

Thank you, Connor and everyone who contributed to my successful onboarding experience. I'm looking forward to interacting more with the IMPACT community. Jennifer Goode has integrated a lot of my learning with training provided by IMPACT so you'll likely be seeing more videos and content as I progress with this community and my position.
