BREAKING NEWS.  WE LIKE YOU has been looking for awesome new colleagues for quite some time now, and we are so very happy to announce you that the waiting game is (partly) over! While looking for great talent, we only had eyes for the best out there: passionate about social, keen on learning, and an enthusiastic personality. May we present you, Elise Van de Velde, the most clever digital strategist you’ve ever seen!

We would like you to get to know Elise a little bit better, and that’s why we asked her some questions. Are you ready?

How did you get to know WLY ? Why did you apply for a job at WLY?

I got to know WLY through social media. I bumped on their Instagram page and saw that they were looking for new talent: so here I am! 🙂

If you were a social channel, which one would you be? Why?

I am a huge fan of Instagram, I really like the fact that people share their stories through great visuals. A picture says so many more than words.

Who’s your social media hero? 

Christie Tyler, a.k.a. nycbambi. I like her style. She always knows how to create the perfect outfit.

Who or which brand do you like the most on Instagram?

I really like the Instagram page of Magali Coffeeklatch. Her pictures of different interior styles are amazing. I wish my house would look like that!

How much time do you spend on social networks a day? 

 Probably a lot. When I have to wait somewhere I like to scroll over Instagram and Facebook. So probably around 2,3 hours a day. But I am sure it will be a lot more soon! 🙂

What’s on the last picture you posted on Instagram?

My meal for dinner last night. I love cooking (and of course eating), so I am sure you will find a lot of food pictures on my Instagram page.

What is the last post you did on your Facebook?

It was a repost from a vintage design showroom based in Antwerp, I always like what they have to offer!
