Hi Truc, can you introduce yourself and give us a little background of what you do?
Initially, I started as a salesperson, but quickly realized it wasn’t the best fit for me. Luckily, at that time, the company was looking for a marketing executive, so I applied and got the job! While working at TGM, I also took on various HR and finance responsibilities as my boss didn’t speak Vietnamese to take care of accounting, taxes, etc. I found that I really enjoyed these tasks and eventually fell in love with it. Recently, I was offered a promotion to the finance team as an office manager, which I gladly accepted, although I was sad to leave my lovely marketing team...
How do you balance being a mom of two with your work responsibilities?
Do you think being a parent has given you any skills or qualities that are valuable in the workplace or your job specifically?
Do you feel that TGM has provided you with opportunities for professional development?
So... yes! Through the years I’ve worked at TGM, my company has provided me ample opportunities for skills development and training. We are always encouraged to learn, whether it’s through offline workshops or online courses. In fact, I just earned my newest certificate few days ago on Human Resources Management: HR for people manager specialization from University of Minnesota and my bosses are already asking me what’s next (laughs). For this, I am thankful. I am and always will be inspired to drive change – not just in my industry and community but my own life as well.
