Hi Zainab, what’s your career been like?
I am a Customer Experience Manager with six years of experience. I started my professional journey as a Contact Centre Professional, then became a Team Lead, before advancing to Supervisor. After three years of doing this, I made a career switch and became a Customer Service Officer with an Asset Management firm, then with a Merchant Bank. As of now, I have been promoted to Assistant Team Lead.
Wow, that’s quite the journey. Have you ever been laid off from work?
Fortunately, I have never been fired or made redundant from a job. I’ve only moved from one to another.
What’s your biggest fear about being laid off from work today?
If this had happened before the start of 2018, I would have been thrown into a state of confusion. I however believe I have been able to build a small portfolio that will be able to sustain me for a few months current lifestyle. My fear is that I will not be able to pay bills without requesting support from my family and friends.
