For the past two weeks, our intern coordinators have been interviewing candidates for Profiles’ fall internship program. As we were discussing interesting questions to ask potential interns, I got to thinking about the strangest question I was ever asked during an interview – “If you were a box of cereal, what flavor would you be and why?” Which leads me to this blog post. Ever wonder what flavor of cereal each Profiles employee would be and why? I took the opportunity to interview my colleagues and received some interesting responses.
NOTE: Our President and Vice President both came up with the same response. Can you tell that they have been working together for years?
Amy Elias (President) Life cereal – need I say more?
Amy Burke Friedman (Vice President): Life cereal, too – and not because I’m a square! I’d like to think I am: “Wholesome with just the right touch of sweetness, Quaker Life Cereal is a healthy, delicious choice for everyone.” It’s not wild and crazy (like Fruit Loops or Lucky Charms). You always know what you’re going to get with each piece — it’s dependable that way…like me!
Jamie Watt Arnold (Vice President): Captain Crunch because I’m the Captain and I make it happen!
Shelly May (Account Executive): Frosted Flakes because I’m ggggrrrrrreat!
Erin Culloty (Junior Account Executive): Lucky Charms because I’m Irish (if you couldn’t tell by my name) and I love the marshmallows.
Christina Camba (Junior Account Executive): Fruit Loops – because I have a bright and colorful personality.
And me (Marianne Ortiz, Senior Account Manager), I’d be Honey Bunches of Oats because I’d like to think that I am a little bit sweet and a little bit nutty. Plus, as their ads go “What’s not to love?”
If you were a type of cereal, what would you be? We’d love to see your responses!
