Turning Trash into Training Dollars

Esri recently held an eWaste Recycle Day, with nearly 100 employees dropping off unwanted electronic items including computers, printers, monitors, TV sets, and cell phones. More than 5,600 pounds of equipment were donated to Goodwill, which processes it in an environmentally responsible way to help protect our planet from hazardous waste. The income Goodwill receives from the recycling program helps fund education, training, and job placement services for people with disabilities.

Truly a win-win. Happy Earth Day!

Meet Vinesh, Global Mobility Coordinator

Vinesh talks about his role in Human Resources and offers insight into the process for employees who join Esri from other countries.

How long have you been with Esri?

I’ve been here about three years. I actually started as a temp in a recruiting assistant role, working with two of our recruiters and the university relations coordinator. After about four months, I transitioned into my current role as Global Mobility Coordinator.

Explain the term global mobility for people who may not be familiar with it.

Global mobility includes everything about making sure people can live and work successfully in a different country, including analysis and support of relocation and compensation. Generally speaking, I make sure Esri’s domestic and international employees are working with legal status and they have no issues working or staying in the US. That is the simple way I describe it to my friends because you’re right: global mobility is confusing. I usually say “global mobility coordinator” or “I’m the immigration guy.” It’s about making sure that people can focus on their work and not have to worry about items related to the government and their stay here.

Interning at Esri a Chance to Contribute

By Erika, Professional Services Intern

Every college student wants that dream internship where they can learn and grow in a professional environment while simultaneously loving what they are doing. I never thought I would be one of those lucky people that can’t stop talking about their internship and annoying all their friends with every detail, until luck struck me and I was hired at Esri as a summer intern! As a recent graduate from UC Riverside and an Inland Empire native, I had always heard great things about Esri and I was so excited to spend my summer learning more about the company. (Editor’s note: Inland Empire refers to the metropolitan area surrounding Redlands.)

Attending Esri UC a “Truly Unique Experience”

By Maura, Strategic Marketing Intern

At the University of Chicago, where I’m a rising junior, Geographical Studies is one of the smallest majors on campus. While more popular in the graduate sphere, most undergraduates are unaware that such a course of study even exists. Thus, attending the 2013 Esri User Conference was a truly unique and overwhelming experience. The San Diego Convention Center was filled to the brim with self-proclaimed “geo-geeks,” the term proudly written across their Esri t-shirts and collectable buttons, who were equally excited to be in the company of others from around the world who are passionate about GIS.

“When life gives you lemons, you map the rise of lemonade,” a sign read above my head as I passed through the lengthy corridor on my way to one of the many workshops at the conference. After spending the morning wandering the exhibit hall and Map Gallery, I was on my way to my first workshop. Although my limited GIS knowledge left me sitting in awe for most of the workshop, the weight of GIS and Esri’s role as a proponent of such technology was not lost on me. Continue reading
