Employee Spotlight: Paola Castro
In this month’s edition of our Employee Spotlight series, we talked to Associate Account Manager Paola Castro about how she ended up in affiliate marketing and the best aspects of working remote for a company like Acceleration Partners!
How long have you been with Acceleration Partners and what is your current role?
I’ve been with Acceleration Partners for three and a half years and I’m an Associate Account Manager.
How did you end up in affiliate marketing?
I wanted to change careers. There was a job opening at an affiliate marketing company, and I applied. I had no idea what affiliate was, but when I googled it, it sounded interesting. I went to the interview, and they started to talk in a different marketing language that I wanted to learn and better understand.
What do you enjoy most about working at Acceleration Partners?
I love that everyday is different. I’m always doing different things like media planning, or a deep dive analysis.
What is the biggest life lesson you’ve learned while working at Acceleration Partners?
I don’t have to be available 24/7. Work-life balance is important and achievable.
What’s a common misconception people have about working remote?
One of the most common misconceptions is that you’ll be isolated. However, everyone at Acceleration Partners is always willing to help you and jump on a call to answer any questions you might have. You’re never alone.
What is your favorite thing to do in Mexico?
I love going out! It could be to a restaurant, a museum, to the park to walk my dog or driving to the beach. Mexico has wonderful restaurants, and the beaches are amazing. I love hearing the ocean.
What’s something about yourself that might surprise us?
I speak Spanish, Portuguese, French and basic Russian. I love learning languages and my goal is to be able to speak the local languages of wherever I travel.
