Meet Haley Carmichael
Where are you from and how did you wind up at Blue Magnet Interactive?
I grew up in the western Chicago suburbs, came to the city for college, and fell in love with Chicago! Throughout college I explored marketing through various industries, everything from water delivery to theatre to manufacturing--but always felt the strongest pull towards web marketing. After stumbling upon Blue Magnet through the wonders of the internet, I knew this was a company where I would learn and grow, but where I would also have fun.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Chicago?
See theatre! Whether it’s improv at Second City, a grand production at Chicago Shakespeare Theater, or a tiny show in a storefront theatre, there are so many exciting shows you can see any day of the week.
If we lived in a world without internet, what would be your alternate career?
I could see myself as the backstage counterpart to a fun group of travelling entertainers, perhaps like a props or costume manager. People would need more live entertainment without the internet!
Where is your favorite place you've traveled to and why?
Japan! The culture there is so different and rich, and the food is incredible! The 12 hour flight is well worth it.
If a restaurant were to name a sandwich after you, what would be on it?
Buffalo chicken, pepper jack cheese, pickle chips/fried pickle chips, and ranch dressing; really the sandwich would just contain a random assortment of my favorite toppings.
What’s your view on Malort, Chicago’s traditional sweetest swedish liqueur ?
I respect the Malort. It’s a Chicago rite of passage.
