Thank you for sharing your day with us, Jozef!

...Jozef Hámorský

I usually wake up to my dog licking my ears…

…around 5.30am!

But I don’t mind because I actually love mornings…

… I have many rituals I like to do. First, I walk my dog, then I have breakfast and a coffee, take a shower, go for another walk with my dog and then go to work. Of course, between all of this I have to put on some clothes!

I usually drive to work...

... I car pool with my colleague who lives in the apartment above me, so I can say, that I am eco-friendly, right?!

One breakfast isn’t usually enough…

… I have another breakfast once I am in the office… When I think about it, I’m pretty much always eating something!

Once I have switched on my computer…

… the first thing I do is fill in the sheet with the daily revenues and check the campaigns running online.

I work most closely with…

… my colleagues from sales, but also with the digital and marketing teams.

If I had to explain my job to a child I would say…

… I sell pictures, moving pictures, text and sound in the internet to clients who want to advertise their products and services on our radio. I spend most of my time liaising with with various people from media agencies, managers from companies and also with the people directly from our radio.

My favourite part of my job is the holidays, weekends & team building days…

… No, JUST KIDDING! I really love the opportunity I have to learn new things every day in my role.

My least favourite part of my job is Excel spreadsheets…

…that one I am NOT kidding about.

I wish more people knew that…

… It’s actually not easy to sell online advertising space on our digital radio internet platforms, because clients and agencies are used to the more traditional “on air” campaigns. However a good campaign uses all the channels available!

I consider everything I have done in my job an achievement…

… every little or a big thing matters. From starting from almost scratch to now being able to sell new online formats that clients like and bring them some results. Everything that has led to where I am today is an achievement.

I usually only have 1 or 2 meetings per day…

… I interact most with colleagues from sales, the marketing & promo department, the digital team and agencies. And when I am working from home I also interact with my dog, or mostly he is trying to interact with me.

Jozef has even been used as a actor for an online video campaign for Rádio Expres's SMS game and has shown his acting talents.

"Nothing in the world can drown out the joy of winning the Express 🤑 🥳 A winning phone call can reach you anywhere. On your way home from work, at work or while shopping. So be prepared - just pick up the phone with the right password and the prize is yours."

I don’t stick to a daily routine…

… you never know what kind of request is waiting for you around the corner, or what ASAP assignment will hit you.

Having said that though….

… I have to have a coffee and a lunch around the same time every day!

I’m a strict vegetarian…

I eat lunch around 12 each day and, having brought in my second breakfast from home, allow myself a bought lunch. I like to eat anything that doesn’t contain meat! Prior to Covid, I would eat in a shopping mall food court, but now it’s in our conference room.

I don’t really ‘stop’ work for the day…

… I am always online, so it feels like I’m always looking out for potential online sales opportunities – except when I am sleeping! Haha. But when I do log off for the day I go home, feed my dog and have another long walk with him.

I like to unwind by…

…listening to a good music album or watching a good movie. And also by taking a walk with my dog (but I am not going to mention it again because I will sound like that’s all I do!). My favourite albums are Beck´s "Sea Change" or Massive Attack´s "Blue Lines" and my favourite movie is "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".

My bedtime varies greatly depending on the season…

… during the summer, it’s around 23:00, during the winter, it’s around 20:00.

I love getting up every morning knowing that…

… every day in my role will present something new. Also because we have also fun as a team and – of course – because I have to pay my bills!
