We are halfway into 2023, and getting to know our colleagues from around the world has been an exciting journey. In our June edition, we go to Singapore, where Blue Wireless started, to talk with Carmen, our Marketing Specialist, by day – but so much more at night! (keep reading to find out!)
Hi Carmen, let’s get to know you first. Who are you and what’s been your journey before Blue Wireless?
I was born & bred (& still surviving 😉) in Singapore! Like most Singaporeans here, I went through the usual education route (primary school - secondary school - junior college - university); and ended the 15 years of formal education with a BSc in Business & Management from the University of London.
I then joined the hospitality industry (catering & event sales) while waiting for the official graduation to be over. It ended up being a 3-year stint! Then…. Covid happened. So, I took that chance to pursue my interest in marketing by leaving the full-time hospitality job for a 12-month traineeship. This was where I gained a deeper understanding and experience in marketing, and I knew then that if I were to do any office-type jobs for the rest of my life, it would be marketing, haha!
That kick-started my job hunt for marketing roles, and that was how I joined Blue Wireless as a Marketing Specialist.
And we are grateful for that! So now in Blue Wireless, how do you like it here – with your role and colleagues?
The team here in the Singapore office is small (only about 20+ of us) but SO fun to be around; and most importantly, very dependable colleagues who take great pride in their work. ☺️ They truly make my work life so much more enjoyable!
