Assistant Manager - Transport Operations Support
Q. What are some advice you can give to the graduates entering the workforce?
As a recent graduate, especially in the operations line, it will be hard to convince people who are many years your senior. Setting processes is very easy but changing something that has been running for 5-10 years is very hard. You will need to handle, convince and persuade people that your idea is better for the company.
"The lecturer said this. “Who do you think takes over the CEO role when he moves up the rankings? It will be the COO, as he knows everything. Just look at Tim Cook and how he took over the reins of Apple” Thus, I decided take operation management as my specialisation and aim for the COO position."
Spotlight stories is a program that reaches out to alumni at different career stages to hear about their stories and life experiences. Run by the BSA Youth Wing, Spotlight Stories interviews are conducted by NUS Biz Undergrad student ambassadors selected through an interview process every year. Students get to meet alumni at their workplaces to conduct an hour long of in-depth interview and build closer relationships.
