Now let’s learn more about Jacob~
Tell us a little about yourself, and what do you like to do most outside of work?
My name is Jacob Murrell. I was born and raised in Springfield, Missouri, with my dad, mom, and brother for the first 18 years of my life. My time was consumed by baseball and football year-round, with occasional hunting or fishing trips. After graduation, I worked at a country club as a Clubhouse Assistant before coming to the University of Arkansas in the Fall.
Being one of two guys in my grade that came to the U of A, I started searching for the best way to make friends and decided that Greek Life was the best option. Since becoming a member of Sigma Nu, I have served as the New Member Educator, and I’m about to start my second term as President. At the end of the day, I love the Lord, and I love helping others become the best version of themselves.
What does your job entail?
As a sales intern, I will prospect for potential clients within the greater Arkansas area. My goal is to give our team members a deeper insight into companies and land second meetings to discuss our services further.
What brought you to Edafio
An alumnus of my Fraternity recommended the company to me. I was highly impressed with how kind and humble the team members were throughout the interview process. I saw Edafio as a place where I could thrive and improve my skills while helping companies in the area with the technical assistance they need to succeed.
Motto or personal mantra
Stay disciplined and get comfortable being uncomfortable.
What do you like to do most outside of work?
I spend time with my friends and work on my fitness through running or lifting.
Do you have a favorite newspaper, newsletter, book, blog and/or podcast?
The Ed Mylett Show
What skill do you think everyone should learn?
Sales because no matter what profession you are in, there will be some form of selling involved. Whether it’s a physical item or your personal skills, you have to be able to articulate something of value.
