Renee Masur


Renee Masur was a student

Renees rating: A terrific 5/5

I have always loooved going to school. I despised getting sick because I would have to stay home from school. This wasn't my attitude all the time, but really, I loved anything to do with books, paper, and pens.

Renee Masur was a Food Preparation Worker

Renees rating: A satisfactory 3/5

I worked at a Chinese Food Restaurant for many of my teenage years. Not really my favourite job, but it was a paycheck. The reason I give this an apathetic face is because of the family I worked for. They were fun, sweet, and truly hardworking. I haven't worked there for a couple years, but I still go see them every Christmas Eve. It's now a tradition.

Renee Masur is a Content Manager

Renees rating: A terrific 5/5

This work didn't begin with this title.

I knew I wanted to work with Sokanu the moment I read the mission statement of the company. The words "help people find their passion" resonated with me and I knew I had to help. I knew I liked to write...but I didn't know what that meant I should do. Write a book? One day. But I was still looking for my path. I even considered becoming a career counselor when I was in high school. Maybe if I didn't know, I could help someone else figure it out.

Then the chance came along for me to help people. I started as an intern writing content for the career pages. Since my "expertise" was writing, my focus was on the Journalism and Writing careers. After that, I worked closely with Spencer Thompson, though remotely, (props to Skype) building our vision for the company and spending many hours in spreadsheets collecting data.

I had no plans to end my internship. Whatever Sokanu was up to, I wanted to be a part of it and contribute however I could.

I think that when you see a vision, and you just KNOW it will succeed, giving up is not an option. After a year and a half, Spencer asked me to move to Vancouver (a city I'd imagined living in since I was little) to work for Sokanu full time.

The rest is history. And right now.
