HOW DID YOUR CAREER AT STREPARAVA DEVELOP?
The months passed quickly and I worked hard to absorb as much information and expertise as possible. Luckily, at the end of that six-month internship, I was given the chance to replace a person in the purchasing office who was absent on maternity leave. I accepted right away with great joy, and on 1 July 1996 I took my place in the purchasing office secretariat. I had just one month to learn everything about that job, and I was very worried, but I set to work, wrote pages and pages of notes, and then got going. At that time, a lot of the work was done by hand, typewritten, and our business management programme was Gipros. My colleagues gave me all the support possible, I was the “house junior”. I liked the work in the purchasing office from the start, and I didn’t know that it would become a major portion of my life. Yes, because except for a very short interlude in the goods receipt and shipping office, I never moved from the purchasing office… That office gradually became my office as well.
