For our Monthly Employee Spotlight, Andrew was nominated and will be highlighted in today’s interview:
Marketing: Hi everyone we are back to bring you another Employee Spotlight. This month we¡¯ll be highlighting Andrew Law from the Boise, Idaho office!
Andrew: Hello! It¡¯s an honor to be highlighted this month and looking forward to letting everyone know more about me.
Marketing: We¡¯ll first start with some basic work questions and dive into some fun ones later on. Let¡¯s get started can you tell us a little bit about your education and background?
Andrew: I studied accounting at BYU and graduated in that field. Since then, I¡¯ve worked mostly in data analysis and accounting management. I¡¯ve always enjoyed reporting and systems more than accounting and bookkeeping. I¡¯ve worked in the Oil and Gas Industry, Parking, and Manufacturing.
Marketing: Next question, how long have you been with Beyondsoft and can you tell us more about your role with BCI?
Andrew: I just started here in December, I¡¯m enjoying it so far. Everyone is very nice and I¡¯m learning a lot. I¡¯m a business analyst with the HP Worldwide Jet Advantage team. I get to manage and develop databases and reports and it¡¯s helping me refine some skillsets I¡¯ve wanted to while utilizing the foundation I already had.
Marketing: Every day we¡¯re always learning something new on our jobs, it¡¯s great to pick up new skills or refine skills as you mentioned. Our next question is what inspires you?
Andrew: On a personal level, people who are kind and generous despite all they have gone through. On a business level, people who take a risk and follow through successfully and benefit the world as a result. I¡¯ve always wanted to start some sort of business, but I¡¯m fairly risk-averse.
Marketing: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Andrew: I¡¯m not sure exactly how to phrase it, but it would have to be centered around my boys. They are the greatest part of my life.
Marketing: We¡¯ll put in a suggestion for ¡°bring your kids to work day¡± :). Our next question is what is your biggest pet peeve?
Andrew: I¡¯m a bit of a stickler for grammar and saying please and thank you. I try not to bring it up, but I definitely notice.
Marketing: We also agree that having basic manners is essential to every life. We¡¯re going to jump back in time for a bit, what is your favorite¡¯s ¡®90s jam and why?
Andrew: Just barely missed the 90s with this one, but I love ¡°Wherever You Will Go¡± by The Calling. I don¡¯t know that I have a reason I could articulate.
Marketing: This song can definitely fit with the ¡®90s theme, it just has that feel to it. If you could time travel, when in time would you go?
Andrew: If I could go back to the past, I would like to visit the romantic era. If I couldn¡¯t go back to the past, I¡¯d like to go into the future about twenty years from now.
Marketing: We just have one last question for you. What is one thing you cannot resist?
Andrew: I have a hard time resisting adventure when it is presented passionately.
