Carmen Lo Class of 2013, BCom in Human Resources Management
Organizational Development Executive, Jebsen & Co. Ltd

After graduation, I decided to develop my career in the field of learning and development. With a clear goal, I applied to the training administration department of a local computer training company. I was accepted as a training officer to deliver computer training. In order to achieve better performance at work, I was keen on equipping myself with technical knowledge and delivery skills. I was involved in a variety of training classes, ranging from government to corporate training. I truly believe that practicing is the best way to sharpen my skills. To further develop my training and facilitating skills, I decided to join Jebsen & Co. Ltd. as a training assistant. Although some might question my decision on taking a lower position, I found this opportunity a great stepping-stone for me to engage with a family of premium global brands. At Jebsen, I am responsible for four Business Units, and each business unit operates with different goals and procedures. It was like working with four different companies at the same time. I was exposed to new and challenging opportunities, including a wide range of engagement projects such as Walk for Millions, Porsche 60th Anniversary Employee Event and Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. With the support of my colleagues and management, I was provided with valuable development opportunities, and was promoted as Organizational Development Executive. Serving as the “Onboarding” touch point of the Employee Value Proposition Programme, I designed the onboarding journey for all New Joiners, helping them adopt Jebsen’s culture, and expand their connections. With a broadened scope, the new position allows me to obtain wider exposure. Going through all the difficulties, opportunities and changes in my career, I have learnt that being proactive and striving for every opportunity are essential. My motto is “no matter if you are at mountaintops or in deep valleys of despair, be optimistic. It is the faith that leads to success!”
