Multitasking, an unfailing helping hand and humour!
After I graduated, I stayed in Britain, where I worked for Telent, creating support tools for engineers, but I started getting homesick for Poland quite quickly. Two years later, I came back and began working for a telecommunications company as a technical writer, a go-between for developers and engineers configuring telecom networks. Soon after that, I was informally leading a team. Then I became a formal team leader and project manager. Maybe it was partly because I was continually getting involved in various company initiatives and projects that someone told me that one of the business areas was looking for a manager and suggested that it might be worth applying. And that’s what happened. After an internal recruitment process that was certainly no piece of cake, I was given the role.
