“Without the baccalaureate in my pocket, I had made my way in the hotel industry. First team member, then baggage handler, and receptionist. I have always kept in the back of my mind the desire to return to my studies one day and I even passed a Diploma of Access to University Studies (DAEU) in English language and literature in 2016.
I was 26 years old and I was planning to enroll in BTS Negotiation and Digitalization of Customer Relations. But my schedules being hardly compatible with a resumption of studies, I ended up giving up, until we were confined in March 2021.
The click of containment
Working in the hotel industry, I was quickly put on partial unemployment, with no date for recovery. My sector of activity, very affected, will recover?
I am seriously thinking this time of converting myself. I have time for the first time in a long time and I decide to take advantage of it to use My Training Account: I register at the Institute of Strategy and Management (ISMI). I like customer relations, it's this type of business in which I want to continue working. My training must end with an internship. I go hunting.
BFM Business and a highly motivated spontaneous application
One day, while I'm watching BFM Business between noon and two (a habit because I'm interested in the stock market and am also a bit of a geek!), I see a young startupper presenting his company, which specializes in the automation of E-mail.
I really liked his speech: less email, better targeted and participation in reducing the carbon footprint. The company looks young and dynamic. I tell myself that I would like to be part of this adventure: the product seems to work well, I recognize myself in the values of its leader, and like him, I want to make things happen. It offers internships: I'm trying my luck!
The digital professions are professions of the future, I want to get on this bandwagon. I'm motivated. During my job interview, I said that I saw the CEO on BFM business and the start-up took me on an internship. I was then trained in a new profession: Business Developer Representative, pre-sales sales representative in good English.
At the end of my internship, I was offered to sign a permanent contract. I accept. At the end of November 2021, I learn that my hotel, Bank Opera, will not reopen. I am fired… I sign my CDI at Kiliba in stride.
Life projects, finally
Today, no more night shifts and weekend work. For me, it's a luxury. I share more moments with my friend and I will get married. I project myself into a family life, which was not possible in my old life.
I love the atmosphere of my new job, young and dynamic. My days are not alike: I meet a lot of companies who explain to me how they work and I learn from their contact. Innovation is permanent in digital and my start-up is evolving rapidly. We are told that we will be 100 at the end of the year whereas we are currently around twenty.
The confinement allowed me to raise my head, ask myself the right questions, and make the right decisions. This TV show changed my life and my horizon cleared up. »
