B-Stock is so excited to welcome Clark Webster to the Business Operations team this winter! As a winter extern, we know Clark will be an incredible asset to the company. Clark is currently studying Economics at Carleton College. Learn a bit more about Clark and see his answers to some questions below.
Q: What are you most excited to learn at B-Stock?
I’m most excited to learn about what specifically the business operations team does and learn new skills when it comes to helping a business run.
Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? (Or still want to be!)
I didn’t have a dream job as a kid, but when I was really little, I was obsessed with garbage trucks and wanted to be a garbage man.
Q: What is one piece of advice you’ve been given that has stuck?
It’s not a specific piece of advice but I have learned from watching my dad that if you give people respect, they are more likely to help you and are much easier to work with.
Q: Where can people find you after work or school?
I love going rock climbing, so usually at the climbing gym.
Q: What is a hidden talent of yours?
I am good at, and love whistling, much to the annoyance of whoever I am living with.
Q: What plays in the background while you work (music genre, podcast, news)?
Usually generic pop/hip-hop music but sometimes I will listen to sports podcasts.
Q: Where would you go with unlimited PTO?
I would most likely stay at home, and hang out with friends more often. Or if I had to go somewhere, I want to take a trip to Asia (after covid).
Q: What do you do when you’re stuck creatively? How do you get the creative juices flowing?
I usually try to do some physical activity while thinking about my problem to find a new solution.
Q: What’s something you’ve accomplished that you’re proud of?
Some of the projects I’ve done for classes including data analysis projects for economics and statistics.
Q: What is one thing you hope to contribute to B-Stock?
I’m hoping that the information I can provide for the project I’m working on can be used to help make decisions in the future.
