During this time at CLARO, due to my human communication skills associated with technical knowledge, led me to technical leadership positions in several projects., which allowed me improving not only my technical background but also my management capabilities.
2. When you realized it was time for a career change?
In order to reach this new level of knowledge in my professional life, I realized that I had to start an international career, i.e., travelling abroad and exposing myself to different cultures, ways of thinking and situations would lead to develop the necessary skills on this area. I strongly believe that in a couple of months or years, this cicle will be completed and this will lead me to more interesting positions in my area.
Of course this decision has a price. The distance with family and close friends. Family is everything to me. So one has to have a great phsicological condition in order to deal with this high price to access all the offers around the world. But if onercan deal with it, the international career is simple amazing, which makes one feels that the world is small.
