Do you have a golden rule that you apply in your work?
I don't know if I would call it a rule or rather a conviction - to always listen to my inner voice and believe in my own expertise. As a human resources manager at Schwarz IT Bulgaria, I am daily confronted with many points of view, many opinions, requests and, of course, feedback. They are all extremely valuable and must be heard. But when I make my decision, I need to know that I make it reasonably and fairly, both for the specific person I am working on and for the company as a whole. That is why my faith in my personal judgment always leads me and my goal is not to allow circumstances to obscure it.
What are the best ways to deal with the challenges?
First a lot of research. Second count to 10 before answering. And third, surrounding yourself with colleagues who will both stimulate you to work harder and better and at the same time will always be a shoulder that can support you, give you advice. The standalone warrior is a mighty one, but great and amazing things are accomplished with many hands and many minds. And we have gathered to do great things :)
What is your advice for beginners in your profession? How to become successful in the IT sector?
Proactivity, taking responsibility and going the extra mile. The sector is extremely dynamic and does not wait for anyone. As much as there is a need for patience, there is a need for quick decisions and completing tasks. They must be ready to make decisions and take responsibility for them and learn very quickly which are the areas of their work that are critical for the business and must always be prioritized. And as the vision of our company states, this will make them fast, efficient and flexible.
