I first decided to move abroad in 2014. It was the hardest decision I have ever made but also the best; I knew it would be very difficult to be away from my family and my homeland but the best decision because I know there are a lot of opportunities and career development possibilities in Dubai. It was not really my plan to work abroad but I am so happy that I made the decision and am now working with MCG Associates.
Since moving here, I have fallen in love with the place. Dubai is such a safe and extraordinary place to live. The buildings, the beaches, the amazing scenery all make it a fabulous destination.
My career path has been interesting to get to MCG-Associates. I was a secretary at a well-known motorcycle company in the Philippines and gave that up to follow my ambitions to Dubai. Luckily, I found a Pharmaceutical & Consumer Healthcare Retail Company where I worked as a Customer Service Coordinator. I dealt with nurses and doctors from different clinics and hospitals around the UAE. It was this role that made me know that I am a ‘people person’ and that I wanted to be front of house and the smiling face that welcomes people to a company, whether clients or candidates. That’s why I always give the best service that I can. Working with different nationalities and cultures is not a hindrance for me but an opportunity to learn more about them. And that was the start of my career in Dubai.
Working for MCG is really a blessing for me. Why? I started here as a temporary receptionist and now I am I have been taken on as a full time member of this energetic, wonderful and passionate team. I was really amazed the first time I met them; they are so welcoming and it is a lovely place to work. I look forward to welcoming you to MCG Associates soon!
