Atria Mian – Executive Assistant, HR & Recruitment Specialist
“Everybody’s story begins with “once upon a time,” and it’s up to us to cherish the time we’re given to ensure we live happily ever after.” — Scarlet Witch
Let me share with you my sweet journey to give you some insights into who I am…
I’m Atria, a Filipino expat based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, a 9-hour plane ride away from the Philippines via straight flight. Just like every Overseas Filipino Worker, I dream of the day I can make the journey back home, laden with enough funds to last a lifetime and interesting stories to regale my family and friends.
I’m currently holding a position as an Executive Secretary to our Company Chairman of a Lebanese Construction Firm. I enjoy the opportunity to work in an organisation that promotes multiculturalism and provides a working blueprint that inspires and encourages collaboration of workforce that comprises of different cultural backgrounds. Because of my keen interest of the Middle East culture and its language, I studied and took up Arabic Language in the Philippine Institute in Dubai and in fact, graduated First Honour last year. 🙂
Life is beautiful no matter its complexities. This has been my motivating factor, on a day to bay basis. As an expat in the Middle East, with no family, no close relatives and only good friends to rely on, I experienced the harsh realities of life. But like what my father used to tell me, in a competitive world, those who are willing to take risks, step out of their comfort zone and into the discomfort of uncertainty will be those who will reap the biggest rewards. This actually hit home and I learned to stand up for myself in any situation.
I value lasting relationships and loyalty. Although I am a newbie home based freelancer, I could be an effective virtual professional. A superhero with unwavering ability to save the day, a reliable person who takes care of the tasks that you don’t do, can’t do and shouldn’t do.
And if you review my CV, I am a professional with over 14 years of loaded and diverse experience in customer service, administration, and managing proficiency in overseeing smooth operation to keep up with minimal or zero customer complaints.
My passion lies with helping businesses to grow and succeed and if you are looking for someone who multi tasks, thinks outside of the box, can work with less supervision, and a lot of fun to work with, well I guess we’re on the same page. Hit me up and I’ll pick up right away. 🙂
