WHAT IS YOUR TITLE/POSITION?

I am working as a content marketer focusing on the B2C audience of the business. 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH WEDDINGDATES?

It’s been just over six months since I joined the company and the experience has been fantastic. 

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST LESSON YOU’VE CARRIED OVER TO YOUR CURRENT ROLE FROM YOUR PREVIOUS JOBS?

  • Being creative: Creativity brings innovation and I want to be that problem-solver that sparks the imagination, drives progress, and cultivates growth.
  • Continuous learning: I am a lifelong learner and every new role brings new learnings and skills I am always open-minded to grab any new skills no matter how simple or small they are. 
  • Wearing different hats: I have been a Jack of all trades since my school days and have fostered that in my professional life too and would love to continue that.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT WITHIN THIS ROLE TO DATE? (WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?)

My biggest achievement to date is an increase in engagements on the company’s social media channels. I have written more than 40 blog posts for weddingdates.ie and weddingdates.co.uk, which is a vital job responsibility, along with video editing and creation. I have passed my probation period and can proudly say I am a full-time employee of WeddingDates.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF YOUR JOB AND WHY?

Flexibility and the team – I have never felt this welcomed and valued. It’s great to meet such a lovely bunch of people who are a true gem and how flexible the working environment is in WeddingDates. It’s almost impossible to find companies like these. 

WHAT IS THE MOST FRUSTRATING PART OF YOUR JOB AND WHY?​​

Technology disruptions can be a frustration, especially when you are working remotely. Sometimes when we really need things to work and it doesn’t – be it laptop-related issues or issues with the internet during Zoom calls. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF YOUR JOB Medhavi WeddingDates Content Marketer

WHEN YOU WERE A KID, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?

I always wanted to become both an actor and a cricketer at one point in my life as I used to do so many stage dance performances (I was a professional jazz dancer back home) and also took part in dramas during my college years. I also represented a local cricket club and played professionally for them for 6 years. I am still open to pursuing them and giving it a try again if I get a chance. 

IF YOU COULD WAVE A MAGIC WAND, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM FOR THIS JOB?

It’s very early stages but I want WeddingDates to be a one-stop shop for all couples to explore everything for their wedding and want the company to be an industry leader in the hospitality sector. My dream is to win either a marketing campaign or marketer of the year for WeddingDates. I am working on that!

WHAT IS THE COOLEST THING YOU'VE SEEN AT A WEDDING Medhavi, WeddingDates Content Marketer

WHAT IS THE COOLEST THING YOU’VE SEEN AT A WEDDING?

I attended one of the weddings back home and different celebrities were performing at the wedding and not only performing – they were mingling with everyone and encouraging everyone to dance with them. And this has become very common and popular these days – every family member is choreographed for the dance performance for the wedding. 

WHAT IS THE CRAZIEST/WORST THING YOU’VE SEEN OR HEARD OF AT A WEDDING?

Last minute change of the venue of one of my friend’s sister’s wedding. It completely ruined the mood and some nice get-together plans that we all friends planned together. 

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE WAYS TO SPEND A WEEKEND Medhavi WeddingDates Content Marketer

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE WAYS TO SPEND A WEEKEND?

I am always exploring and trying new things – be it new skills, new cooking dishes, or new places to explore but I’m a family person so prefer to spend time with them and friends at home. 

HAVE YOU ANY PARTICULAR HOBBIES/INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF WORK?

I love almost every sport, playing it (soccer, cricket, boxing, etc), sketching, dancing and cooking.

HAVE YOU ANY GUILTY PLEASURES?

Binge-watching series and sometimes being stubborn and very lazy

IF MONEY WAS NO OBJECT, WHAT WOULD BE THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD BUY?

If money were no object, I’d give my parents everything they need – experiencing a luxurious life, medical treatment for their health, long and happy life. Creating and cherishing every moment with them and expressing gratitude for their lifelong sacrifices and love. I wouldn’t be here where I am today if it weren’t for their sacrifices, blessings and love.
