2023 was extremely humbling for me. After 10 years with the same company, I was laid off and have been trying to pick up the pieces since then.

I am a versitle operations manager with 10 years experience in the consumer goods space, looking to get my foot in the door.

I am new to Elpha and looking forward to extending my avenues of job searching and making some connections with other like minded women.

Please reach out to me if you are interested in having a vitural coffee just to chat or if you'd like to talk shop and see how we can help eachother.



Welcome Becca, we're so thrilled you're here! I am sorry things were rough in 2023. This is a new year and we're manifesting greatness, good fortune, and success in all areas!What do you want to do next? Would you like to stay in CPG and ops or are you exploring other areas? How else can we support you?
Hi @iynna I would like to stay in CPG and ops if possible, just based on how much experience I have but I am open to exploring if the right opportunity comes along. I feel like my biggest roadblock right now is not having a network of people that may be able to find something new. I think that has been one of my biggest challenges being at one company for 10 years-not having a variety of different companies/categories/people to ask for help from
all this makes sense! I'd argue you have a huge network, and it looks like you were at a sizeable company (WholeFoods market), have you reached out to your former colleagues, bosses , reports who have since left the company? Idk the relationship with Amazon but have you shaken some trees there? the alexa/amazon devices team is hiring
Hey @rebeccabarton, I'm sorry to hear that! We have that previous employer in common and I can definitely relate to what you're feeling. Let's chat. I'll connect on LinkedIn.
@rebeccabarton 10 years is a long time and it must be a tough phase. Very much interested to chat, lets connect on LinkedIn :)
Hey Becca! I was also laid off in 2023 by my company of 14 years! Let's grab a virtual coffee some time!
