Sadie Kikkert, 21
PromoPlace, Ancaster, Ontario
How she got her start: My boss saw my work efforts at a yard clean-up one Saturday, and noticed how much effort I put into things. So, I got told from someone else to hand in a résumé at PromoPlace. I did and got the job.
Her current role: I currently am a sales representative for promotional products and I help clients look for products with a purpose.
What she likes best about her job: I love watching clients’ reactions when they receive promotional products with their logo on them.
Age roadblocks and advantages: [The advantage is I’m] energetic.
Her biggest career influence: My dad has been really helpful with advice. He has done sales for many years and we love giving each other advice.
Her differentiating factor: I just try to be myself and sell my service in a good, positive manner.
