Khryzel Castañeda Baring – Accounting
Hi, my name is Khryzel Castañeda Baring from Cebu, Philippines. I’m 28 years old and married to a loving husband for two years now with no kids yet. I studied in the University of San Carlos with a degree in Management Accounting last 2012.
After graduation, I first worked with Accenture Philippines as an Accounts Payable Analyst for three years. I handled three different processes during my tenure namely, invoice processing, accounts payable helpdesk and vendor master data management.
My experience with Accenture was definitely a challenge since our markets were then from US and Canada. Imagine working on a night shift while being a fresh graduate! Although the schedule was quite difficult, I still managed to excel and rose to the top. I was awarded with the highest score every month. Because of this, I was entrusted to migrate a new project for the team. I did the training for one month and documented the whole process until its final implementation. We stabilized the project in three months and had a successful go-live thereafter.
After Accenture, I moved to Mercedes Benz Group Services Philippines, Inc. as an Interface Management Analyst for four years. This was actually more of a support/admin role and was very different with my previous job. We basically aid in ensuring that the documents/files from the local servers were successfully integrated into the central system so that the accounting team could start processing. We served as the first step of the business cycle because we load the day-to-day files and resolve any error or issue in between.
Although this job was not accounting-related, I still managed to excel among my colleagues. One year after, I was sent to Madrid, Spain to handle a new project for the team. I worked hand in hand with our Marid colleagues and did the testing until its final implementation. I still authored the documentation for the whole process to ensure that there were no missed steps. The project was stabilized after three months and I trained three team members to learn and support the project with me.
My career had been very interesting in the past seven years. I had 3 years of experience in accounts payable and 4 years in a support/admin role. These may be two different processes but I only have one definite goal – to excel. I have to stay focused and do the best in everything. I can proudly say that my achievements are born from determination and hard work because I believe that nothing is impossible as long as you put your heart and mind into it.
