Mellissa majored in business communications with a minor in e-commerce at Utrecht University. After graduating, she spent a year as a volunteer, giving Dutch lessons to immigrants in the Netherlands. Mellissa eventually began working at a consultant agency and served as a consultant for Philips Lighting. After a few years, she was hired as a full-time employee for the company.
Mellissa spends time extensively reviewing the Philips Lighting website as, well as the company’s local websites. Her main focus when reviewing these sites is to ensure the displayed content and portfolios are complete. Mellissa also works with e-commerce websites to develop content tailored to those channels.
“This was a new project, creating a process around the digital activation of Philips Lighting products. We now have a fixed WOW, which will help us push the right owners and get products online in time.”
“My advice to someone coming to interview is to show your passion for your role. You don’t have to be an extrovert or an introvert—just know what you want and show that you really want to learn.”
