Why did you join the Oracle NetSuite team?
With my experience as an Implementation Consultant and Project Manager for ERP platforms, I joined Oracle NetSuite back in 2016 to expand my knowledge and capabilities with the best cloud-based ERP system in the industry. Before joining the company, NetSuite had already built its reputation on creating industry standards, combining it with great innovation through its highly reliable platforms and cloud solutions.
Because of the company’s maturity in the IT industry, and how it delivers, I knew from the very start that joining Oracle NetSuite would be one of my best choices for my career advancement.

With the expertise of my consultants in each project, I get to see how well Oracle NetSuite’s leading practices help each customer on how we can improve their business.
Despite everyone’s competitiveness, helping fellow colleagues with any difficulty they encounter at work drives people at Oracle NetSuite. It’s a common thought here that one’s success is everyone’s success. I believe that this kind of environment is one of the best benefits of working here.

Do you have any career advice to share with our readers?
One of the things I’ve learned in my years in the industry is to invest more on your long-term goals and to value your passion.
In the earlier years of my career, I used to take different work roles that didn’t require much interaction with people, although I knew from the very start that collaboration and mentoring people were what I generally enjoyed. Later, I explored taking an IT Consulting role, which opened my doors in helping customers with solutions that worked best for their business.
Through these active interactions with customers, I learned that I had something more to offer in my career: leadership. This brought me to opportunities in Project Management where I got the chance to lead people and customers in achieving goals by delivering project implementations. Through continuous exploration of your passion, you’re also opening yourself to understanding who you are and of what you’re capable.
One of the reasons why I’m thankful for being with Oracle NetSuite is that they support their employees in achieving their long-term goals, and lead us to internal opportunities that fulfill our passions.
