From the Beginning…

While interviewing for the position of Project Coordinator with AlphaGraphics I was told that everyone who was hired started off in the bindery to learn exactly what is we do here at AlphaGraphics. I thought this was a great idea and when I was offered the position I was excited to get started.

Thinking I would spend my first day watching some people operate the machines in the back for a few hours and then spend the rest of my time at my desk, I wore my usual work attire complete with three-inch heels. Big mistake. When they tell you you’ll be learning what exactly they do at AlphaGraphics, they mean it.

I quickly found myself operating the cutter, binding cookbooks, slitting business cards and a myriad of other tasks that kept me busy and on my feet. By the end of the day I was barefoot, but I loved every minute of it. Never before have I felt so completely immersed and part of a business after the first day.

Now, nearly four weeks later, I’d consider myself a “pro” in the bindery. I’m excited to take the knowledge I’ve gained during my time cutting, punching, binding and shrink-wrapping (all in flats now) and help our clients get more out of their experience with AlphaGraphics than they ever thought possible.

AlphaGraphics in the Cultural District’s Newest Project Coordinator (Welcome Carrie – We’re so happy to have you!)
