Web content coordinator, Latin America
There is not a boring day in my job, I am always in touch with colleagues around the world and I love the atmosphere in my office. I see myself working here for a long time.
My career path with the company
I joined the Company in January 2012 as Web content coordinator for Smurfit Kappa Latin America (where we have operations in 9 countries). It was a big step in my career, because Smurfit Kappa Carton de Colombia is one of the best places to work in my country.
The project to renew our online presence is a new approach for the company in its marketing and communications strategy, so I have been constantly learning during this journey.
My most rewarding experience at Smurfit Kappa
The short time I have been with the company has been a great professional and personal experience for me. One of the highlights for me is the travel. As part of my training, I went to the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States. This was especially exciting as it was my first time travelling outside of Colombia! I have also traveled to Argentina and Chile. Meeting and learning from colleagues from different countries and cultures has been fascinating and enriching for me, both personally and professionally.
What advice would you give someone considering joining Smurfit Kappa?
I would tell this person that Smurfit Kappa is a great company and it is a pleasure to work here. There are always opportunities to grow, learn and contribute. I think the best advice is to keep an open mind and always be willing to learn.
