Elena Lagada Ruta – Sales and Marketing
A blessed day everyone.
Hi, my name is Elena Ruta, my friends call me Len. I am from Naga City Camarines Sur (Bicol) Philippines. I am now 33, without kids, and soon to marry my 4-year very supportive partner, in December 2020 (hopefully).
I was born in a well-to-do family whose business by then was a fish dealership to Chinese restaurants in our town. Unfortunately, my mother got an ectopic pregnancy and acute appendicitis and had to undergo surgery so we decided to let go and sell our business and other properties to sustain the operation and medication of my mother. From then on, I have learned to engage in different small businesses and employments so to become at least financially independent.
During college and shortly after graduating, I have been a freelance Sales Consultant for a car company. It was a very hard time for me to finish my BS BIOLOGY degree but it never discouraged me from pursuing my dreams and being able to find a job and help support my family.
Soon after graduation, I worked in an office with administrative function for almost 8 years. My tasks included data entry, supplies and inventory management, sales reporting, system management, sales customer service, and sales coordination. With the demands of the job, I have familiarised myself with Microsoft Office, particularly Excel.
The main reason why I want to grab this opportunity to work from home is because I want to spend more time with my partner and be able build our own family. In our 4 years together, I had two miscarriages and it’s so hard for me to recover mentally, emotionally and financially. I was medically advised to take a break from public commuting and stress from outside work. To me, being a mother will complete me as a woman and I am praying that God will give us this soon. This, while pursuing my desire to do work-from-home jobs.
Being loyal, reliable, trustworthy, honest, hardworking, friendly, able to multi task and being positive at all times are among the qualities I hold dear. I have proven, many times, that these values are essential, more particularly in the corporate setting where I deal with different kinds of people. To me, values go on top of education because I have met people who are educated but not well mannered.
I know God leads me to this job opportunity to be able to give me more time for my personal healing, my partner, and the baby I have always longed for.
