I got my first job offer when I was 23, within a few months of shifting my academic career and starting my master’s degree in digital marketing. I trusted my gut and I took the job, hoping to challenge myself and advance in my career.
Here’s what I have learned in the past year, working in a multinational Tech company, headquartered in Sousse, that is integrating world-class standards:
First things first, there are plenty of young Tunisian talents out there. Polyglots, remarkable experiences, and open-minded millennials as well as Gen Z.
The Tunisian youth never ceases to amaze the world. The new generation is promising and enthusiastic as these young people, especially the ones I work with, are always prepared to work hard and sacrifice what others, at their age, consider to be “fun.”.
Second, when it concerns building a career, young generations focus heavily on values. Thus, strong organizational culture can serve as a magnet to recruiting bright people.
Work culture plays a huge role in increasing productivity, happiness as well as decreasing absenteeism. Not to mention the high-quality equipment, the mediterranean sea view, curtain walls, and the beautiful downtown view…
Third, collaborating with everyone from different backgrounds can bring the best out of everyone. As a matter of fact, I’ve learned that great minds think differently and not “Great Minds Think Alike”.
Collaborating across departments and brainstorming across individuals allows us, as a team, to contribute our creative ideas and abilities. Everyone has something exceptional to bring to the table that will make you want to learn about.
Although this is my first job, I did experience work life when I was an intern in multiple companies and consulting for others, so I quite know what a toxic environment would look and feel like. Let me know if I should talk about what I’ve learned from these internships down below!
In conclusion, a healthy workplace, different backgrounds, and goal-oriented mindsets all contribute to a successful corporate culture that benefits everyone. A tribute to everyone working in Cyber Division, I’m grateful for you all!
