I first started off as a Management Trainee, at that time I thought that the Supply Chain Division was the most interesting option for me, compared to Technical (Factory)/Sales/Marketing /HR/Finance. By joining Supply Chain Management, I believed I could learn end-to-end business processes. After two and a half years, I considered joining a consulting firm to expand and apply my knowledge.
As a young professional one of my end goals is to become a Founder / Co-Founder and CEO in a tech start-up company.
I think networking is very important for me and other young professionals. I can successfully support business developments because of networking. I was a super introverted person, but after I graduated from my university, I have been learning to improve my social skills to build a wide network because it’s crucial for my career. Being a smart person is not enough if you don’t have a good network to support you.
I think the mentor-protégé program that naisA offers is key. It provides individuals with the fundamentals to career success and advancement.
