Welcome to The Cooper Column! Netrush’s new column, written by me, Janay Cooper, the newly minted member of the Communications team! I’ll be showing you what it’s like to work around here, what kinds of projects we’re getting into, and providing my take on the latest news in e-commerce, Amazon, and beyond. This will be a journey for both of us — as I learn, so will you. We’ll walk this path together and journey through the world of all things Netrush.
Let’s get to know each other, shall we? I’m new here. Thus far, I’ve found there is a lot to learn and my current goal is to shift my brain into sponge mode to absorb all there is to know. In all seriousness, I’m incredibly excited to be here. Now, I could keep going on about me, myself, and all that in lengthy paragraphs but wouldn’t it be more fun to do it in Q&A format instead? Excellent, I thought so too.
Who are you, again?
The name’s Janay Cooper and before Netrush, I was studying fashion marketing and management at an art school in Atlanta, Georgia. Though I have a passion for fashion, content creation and visual communication play a huge role in the majority of my work.
What is your role at Netrush and what do you do?
I’m on the Communications team, so I’ll be serving up content all day long. My role right now is to learn and ask questions. However, my goal as a content specialist is to build brand consistency and recognition across all of our social channels, design and produce internal and external content for Netrush, as well as keep up-to-date with and report saucy industry insights.
How exactly will you shift the Netrush social content?
Nice try! You will see soon enough, my friend.
You say you went to art school, huh? Do you even know Mona Lisa?
Of course, Mona and I go way back. Offered to let her use my eyebrow pencil once and she hasn’t talked to me since.
Do you have any hobbies?
Yes, I have quite the pull toward all things music and often find myself spending hours playing my guitar or piano. On occasion, I do enjoy painting. Watercolor painting is something I took up a few years back and found it to be cathartic in many ways.
Any irrational fears you’d like to share?
I have this irrational fear of making tea without socks on, due to forgetting to put socks on prior to, and accidentally dropping boiling hot water on my bare feet.
