Young Pros Spotlight
Stephanie Scalice, Age 27
Manager, Consumer Insights / Macy’s, Inc.
Joined ARF Young Pros Fall of 2014.
What is your biggest professional challenge?
My biggest professional challenge is trying to avoid complacency. I am always in search of the next way to challenge myself or expand my skillset so I can stay relevant in a fast-changing industry.
How has being an ARF YP member impacted your career?
Being a member of the YP has served as a great growth opportunity not only in terms of learning but also in terms of networking. When I first began my career I knew very little about market research because my college major was unrelated. After becoming an ARF member, I was able to expand my industry knowledge, learn about various career paths/options, and meet others who were around my age and experience level.
What’s your favorite event that you have been to?
Definitely the Mentoring Loft! I really appreciate the small group breakout sessions where we can talk to and learn from others who are facing similar challenges.
When researching a topic you know nothing about, how do you get started?
Connect with an expert. If possible, I try to find someone who is knowledgeable on the topic and willing to chat. It’s easier to talk through something I’m unfamiliar and be able to ask questions in real time.
What is your Dream Job (If Money was No Object, What Would You do)?
For me, life is better in running shoes. If money were no object, I would be a running coach or personal trainer. It combines a few of my favorite things: running, exercise/being active, wearing sneakers and helping people.
