As a Melbourne headshot photographer I come across some incredible women. I created this blog category to show them off and the headshots we make together. I sat down with Jessie and asked her these 15 questions:
Jessie Ivancic, former Head of HR – SSO & TA, Myer Pty Ltd, current full-time mum to sassy toddler.
Many. I was big into the fluoro phase of the mid 2000’s. We were human highlighters. Another that springs to mind from the same era – not my own, but glorious nonetheless – was my cousin’s platinum blonde clip in hair extension flying loose from her head mid aggressive dance move on a podium, and landing in a light fitting.
A fancy boat. I am the dichotomy of luxury-loving and a keen fisherwoman.
Recently, laughing at a video of my friend taking a spectacular stack down a playground slide. Disclaimer: no one was hurt in the making of the video.
“Have you seen the latest Kardashian’s ep?” – it’s just not my jam. #nonfictionforlife
Unsolicited or unfounded opinions. Just because we have one, doesn’t mean it should be offered. And the social expectations of women, generally speaking. Oh, and climate change deniers.
When my daughter holds my hand.
Having a hand in the recovery of $2.5 million worth of employee entitlements, via FEG, lost when STA Travel went into liquidation as the Employee’s Representative in the Committee of Inspection. (While I was heavily pregnant on my journey to solo parenthood.)
HR should bring in revenue. It isn’t enough to just do HR.
Making an error in payroll right before Christmas. I still don’t think I have forgiven myself.
My Nonna’s Slovenian apron from the 1960’s. It helps me channel the cooking skills of my ancestry.
Not a lot. I’m a pretty intentional communicator; goes with the HR Leader territory. Others would probably wish I’d stop singing though. I’m unusually talented at remembering song lyrics, much to the displeasure of my loved ones, I’m sure.
Not one that requires excessive overtime! Time for connection is key.
Thank you so much for your time Jessie.
