What is your name and what do you do at Zemoga?
My name is Yody Castro, I’ve been working at Zemoga a year and a half, approximately, as a Web Designer.
What made you want to take part in the employee exchange program?
A couple of years ago I was studying in London, speaking English, but I’ve never had the chance to get to know how it is working in my discipline abroad. That’s why, when I knew about this opportunity, I just did’t think about it twice. It’s so much fun to try a different work environment for a bunch of weeks and have a look at the office and the people who probably are in contact with you everyday by chat, but you’ve never seen before in real life. For me, it’s like matching a face and a voice with a name that you just have read in emails.
In other words it’s a breath of fresh air.
What have you learned so far in the time you’ve been here? What do you think of the program?
I re-confirmed that everyday can give you surprises and chances to learn incredible things about people and places, and I’ve been here just 2 weeks, so there are a lot of good stuff coming! And… I’m in NY!
Last month, we launched a new HR initiative in our Bogota office: “Exchange Experience”.
As evident by the name of this blog, Zemoga has strong ties with Bogotá, Colombia. It’s where the heart of our company lies.
