Employee spotlight: Alondra Gibson

Hello Everyone 👋  

My name is Alondra and I am the US Talent Sourcer. I am helping Blink recruit candidates with diverse backgrounds to bring in a variety of perspectives while cultivating creativity and innovation.  

I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. I came to the US when I was about 6 years old and have been visiting ever since. When the time came to decide on a career path, I was interested in medicine but, somehow ended up with a degree in Finance and Investment.

My goal was always to help people whether that was becoming a doctor or guiding people in making the best financial decisions. After high school, I was a full-time college student as well as a personal banker at Wells Fargo and Citibank, two of the largest financial institutions in the US. During my time there, I found a passion for educating people on their personal finances and building long-lasting relationships. I knew that after getting my degree, I wanted to work for a company that allowed me to incorporate both.  

I graduated in 2020, right in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic which made it very hard to return to the financial industry but to my luck, it was just a blessing in disguise. During that time, I was able to build my craft, learning how to network and communicate in the era of zoom. I discovered that my skill set could be put to use by planning and designing special events for my friends and family. I was everyone’s go-to person for birthday parties, bridal showers, and any small event that needed vision and organization! It was a way for me to immerse myself in my community while keeping the lessons I’ve learned about finances, networking, and leadership fresh.    

In 2021, I decided to go back on the hunt for a job and Blink was there with an offer! After signing with Blink, I moved back to NYC, got engaged, and married! Yes, all after signing with Blink.   

Fast forward to 2022 & I am more than blessed to have gone through this journey with my Blink Family. I am now working for a company that empowers its employees, in the same way, they give the frontline workers a voice!
