Cheya Thousand ('09) Interviewed by WWD

2009 LIM College alumna Cheya Thousand is currently a talent supply chain engagement senior coordinator at Amazon.

In a recent Q&A with WWD, Cheya describes how her LIM experience laid the groundwork for her career, as she moved from store management—with companies like Macy’s and Victoria’s Secret—into human resources, where she now oversees high-volume hiring initiatives.

"LIM prepared me to make great career decisions," Cheya tells WWD. "When I graduated, I felt ready for the next chapter in my life—which was in the Macy’s Executive Development Program for Store Management. I was a quick learner, and I attribute that to LIM and all the resources they provided to prepare me for life after college."

Cheya continues, "At LIM, I learned how to be a leader and also how to be great in a supporting role when necessary. Those are both invaluable in the workplace."
