What do you love most about your job?
I love arts and design that’s why I pursued a design engineer career path. I love being able to express my creativity and my engineering expertise in the projects we have been doing. I also like being challenged with the tasks given to me which drives me to learn things I’m unfamiliar with.
What are your strongest skills?
I am detail-oriented which is helpful with the projects I have been working on. I am also quick to learn things so whenever I’m faced with something unfamiliar, I try to learn it on my own with different materials I can get from the internet and apply it to my tasks.
What was a challenge you experienced at Yempo and how was it solved?
I think the only challenge I experienced was during my first few weeks which has something to do with the Solidworks application set up on my computer. It was easily resolved with Yempo IT team as well as my manager who helped me initiate communication with both parties.

I like how the management has been giving constant updates on how the company is doing every month thru newsletters. I also like the work-life balance that we have which is something I really value.

The most important for me is commitment. When you commit to something, you make sure you do your best to achieve the best results.
