What motivates me
Curiosity motivates me to step out of my comfort zone. Strong curiosity leads me to constantly refresh myself with new knowledge, brilliant mindsets and enlightening ideas, which further simulates my growth in many aspects. Curiosity tells me if I never try I will never know what I am capable of.
"A year after I started, I had the opportunity to work on-site support with a client in China. This opportunity was exceptional, but, at the same time challenging for a junior level consultant. The trust and support that my colleagues gave me encouraged me to continue pursuing the challenge and feel confident in my ability to succeed."
My first encounter with Techedge was at the career fair in my senior year. Techedge campus recruiters were kind and helpful. They provided great suggestions on potential opportunities in the company and encouraged me to apply. Further down the interview process, Techedge presented a trusted and supportive company culture, and I loved it. Hence, I started my first full-time job as a Business Analytics & Performance Management Consultant in Techedge, even though other companies had presented me with interesting offers.
A year after I started, I had the opportunity to work on-site support with a client in China. This opportunity was exceptional, but, at the same time challenging for a junior level consultant. Understanding the situation, my manager and colleagues arranged one-on-one training sessions and compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help me succeed. The trust and support that my colleagues gave me encouraged me to continue pursuing the challenge and feel confident in my ability to succeed.
Supporting an international client was just one of the many projects I had during my two years in Techedge. One of the advantages of rotating between different projects is that my professional and interpersonal skills are constantly improving. Starting from knowing nothing about enterprise systems, I am now proficient in HFM, FDMEE, PBCS, etc. Not to mention how much I have improved on my interpersonal skills from working with clients face-to-face on daily basis and maintaining a trusting business relationship with them.
I appreciate the opportunities that Techedge has given me to demonstrate my value as a consultant. I truly believe that the trust and support from my colleagues has built the best work space for my personal growth.
