What do you do at Jitjatjo and how long have you been with the company?
I work in Finance and I have been with the company Since January of 2020.
What is your typical day like?
After waking up next to a dog who takes up my entire bed, we head out for our daily morning walk, which is our favorite part of the day. After returning home, we eat a nice breakfast, wash up, and then the workday begins. I’ll start off by reviewing any emails I have received, followed by the biggest aspect of my job: COLLECTING THAT MONEY. When I am not reaching out to clients regarding past due invoices, I am reviewing any received checks and marking the invoices listed as paid in our accounting platform. Once I have reviewed the aging invoice report, I check in on Slack and take care of any pending requests that I need to attend to, such as providing account statements or issuing refunds to clients, just to name a few.
