I'm Robert Walters
I was always looking for an international work environment, especially since I had previously worked and studied in Australia, so I was really attracted to Robert Walters’ reputable, global brand and its wide network of clients and candidates. Before stepping into Robert Walters, I could see the company’s expansion in Indonesia, and once I was fully embedded in the business, I realised there are many opportunities for career progression as well – how fast you progress all depends on your motivation; you take charge of your own actions to get results.
Starting as a consultant in Robert Walters in 2016, it took me two years to be promoted to senior consultant, and another two years to become a manager with my own team. While I did experience emotional ups and downs during this time, it has also taught me to be consistent and self-disciplined. And when things don’t go as planned, I try to look at issues from a holistic viewpoint, and I know I could always seek support and advice from my colleagues.
To this end, Robert Walters has provided us with lots of formal training, from lessons on basic recruitment to roleplays, together with informal support from our predecessors and the Group to cultivate the right mindset in order to take on more senior positions in the firm.
If you have the right motivation and interest to do something different for your career, join Robert Walters. Working here will equip you not only with professional experience but also valuable life experience, which helps you to develop your confidence and maturity, and will turbo-charge your career.
