Working at Editec has been both challenging and rewarding. Joining our organisation with an open and resilient mind would ultimately reap amazing benefits for individuals who are willing to adapt to their environment and be a constantly hungry learner. My motto is that there is no failure in life – we either accomplish what we seek or we learn from our mistakes in order to achieve our targets.
When I first joined Editec, I was sceptical and had serious doubts since Editec’s Operations are located in developing economies and I was venturing into a whole new industry – The Gaming Industry. Nonetheless, I decided to courageously take the opportunity and I started my adventurous journey with Editec on the 18 April 2014.
After 5 years as a valuable team member of Editec, I can proudly confirm that taking this step has been fruitful as it enabled me to grow on both a personal and professional level. Editec is an organisation that identifies talent and rewards dedication and loyalty. Being promoted twice and moving from being Commercial Executive to Commercial Manager, then to my current role as Operations Manager have brought me valuable experiences and interpersonal skills.
My initial studies were in business management, and my professional background before joining Editec was in advertising and marketing. I used to be an Account Manager for an advertising agency in Lebanon, where I was stuck in the same dead-end role for several years. However, since I have joined Editec, I have been enjoying the diverse daily challenges our job constantly offers.
Career opportunities at Editec are immense. Advancement opportunities are given based on merit and accomplishments. Working with passion, learning constantly, and grasping innovative concepts and processes ultimately develop a person’s abilities and skills, especially when working within a mature and friendly organizational culture like Editec.
Furthermore, the experience of adapting to a new culture in an emerging economy often brings in a fresh perspective that can ultimately evolve our mind towards more resilience, creativity in problem solving, and flexibility to adapt to different management styles. I was lucky enough to gain an amazing life experience and collect beautiful memories throughout my career with Editec since I have already moved between 4 lovely African cultures. I am now based in Dar es Salaam – Tanzania, which is a booming African city with a lot to offer.
Finally, my best satisfaction at work is developing and empowering the locals to become well equipped with strong willingness to learn and become efficient employees and effective managers. During my past 5 years at Editec, I have identified several talents and thankfully I have managed to develop people’s skills, their abilities and know-how. These metamorphoses offer me a deep sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Building up projects and increasing sales figures as well enhance my confidence level and allow me to persistently work on my problem-solving abilities and management capabilities – the future is yet to show what I can further achieve at Editec since in our organisation SKY IS THE LIMIT!
