I have always dreamt of receiving recognition through this prestigious platform to shine a light on the years I have spent in the industry. Therefore, it was an honour when my Managing Director, Ms Janet McNab, and our Director of Public Relations, Ms Karen Kang, nominated me for the awards.
Because I was nominated by my colleagues, I did not personally reach out to individuals for the testimonials. However, when I got a copy of the application after it was submitted, I was truly touched by how my peers and subordinates viewed me as a person and within my role.
My Managing Director, EAM of Sheraton Grand Macao and Housekeeping Manager wrote my testimonials. Reading their endorsements was indeed a very humbling experience because it showed me how my success was only made possible by having a very supportive team.
My advice would be to candidly share your passion for your work in the application. Choose a few topics that are dear to your heart and your greatest achievements to write about. Be sure to highlight your accomplishments in the areas of developing talent, implementing innovations and promoting sustainability in the workplace.
Below are the key reminders I followed for the phone interview:
Yes. The person I am especially inspired by is Ms Janet McNab, my Managing Director. She represents the modern-day woman, who has achieved great heights in her career through the power of positive thinking and self-motivation. She is my mentor and a great advocate for women in leadership. Notably, her genuine belief in working hard and setting one’s mind towards a goal to achieve success has truly encouraged me to reach for my dreams.
