Congratulations on your new role! How is it so far?
Thank you. So far so good, I can finally say I love my job.
Are there any secrets you used that could also help other job seekers get a job?
I can’t say it was something new I did because I have been applying for jobs for quite a while, it’s God’s doing and lots of patience. Knowing what you finally want and not settling for anything less helps keep you motivated in the application process.
What is the biggest hurdle you had to overcome as a job seeker?
The notion of taking any job just because you are looking for one in the hopes of being absorbed in the right position when it comes along. You end up settling for what you didn’t want in the first place and quite unhappy if you don’t make peace with your choice.
Your professional personality describes you as stress resistant and a finisher. What other qualities would you say make you stand out?
Persistence and I am quite keen on details which is a plus in my field of work.
Your areas of interests happen to be engineering and manufacturing, driving and logistics. You must be proud to be a lady who is thriving in this fields that have been male dominated, what does it take?
Believing that you can also do it and excel no matter what comes your way. Believing in yourself and purpose to be the best you can be in all that you do.
You still use Fuzu even after you got a job. How instrumental is it in your career?
Hahaha. I have not thought of disabling my account and I don’t plan to for now. It brought me where I am now and i'll be forever grateful. Disabling it would feel so cold.
Your profile says you speak and write Spanish fluently, how do you say or write 'Fuzu is the best' in Spanish?
Honestly speaking, I din’t know it says I am fluent, I was learning then but haven’t managed to finish. The little I know for that is (Fuzu es el major – with a Spanish accent).
