How did you become an administrator and designer?
I have a certificate in information technology and had worked at Ebony Enterprises as an IT assistant for two years. A friend, who believed I had potential, asked me to forward my CV to my current employer. I was called for an interview and two days later, I went for the final one and was taken.
What motivated you to be an administrator?
People motivate me. The key role of an administrator is to handle all employees’ issues and I love helping people be their best. It is satisfying to see the smile on someone’s face after I’ve helped them solve a problem.
What exactly does your job entail?
Administration of employees and contracts, maintaining communication within the organisation, preparing a budget and managing the company’s fixed assets and databases. I also do designs and adverts for the company.
What motivates you to wake up and go to work every day?
The people that I love — my parents, siblings, friends and husband.
If you ever get sacked, how would you handle it?
I guess I would concentrate on my studies to improve my qualifications then critically consider my next career move. I would look for an enjoyable job where I can perform optimally.
