Sabrina Chiu is a seasoned Human Resources professional who, amid the bustling heart of Taipei with its thriving businesses, found herself at a crossroads in her career. With over a decade of dedicated service in the field of HR, she had become an expert in navigating the intricate landscapes of recruitment, compensation, and training with finesse.
One day, a call came from Joyce Chen, Senior Consultant at Robert Walters Taiwan, bearing an unexpected proposition – the role of Deputy General Manager at BIPO in Taiwan. Initially, Sabrina was surprised; her roots were deeply embedded in the realm of HR, and the prospect of stepping into a broader management position was both thrilling and daunting.
Driven by an adventurous spirit and a thirst for new challenges, Sabrina decided to embrace the opportunity with open arms. "Leaving the familiar territory of HR was like stepping into uncharted waters. But there was something liberating about it, a chance to view the corporate world from a completely different angle,” Sabrina shared. “Robert Walters saw beyond the confines of my resume; they recognised the depth of my experience and the potential I had to offer in this new role."
As she embarked on her new chapter, Sabrina found herself faced with a myriad of challenges. The transition from overseeing a compact HR team to managing a larger, diverse group brought its own set of hurdles. "It was a shift that demanded adaptability and resilience," Sabrina recalled. "But I drew strength from the years I spent honing my skills in HR. The ability to understand people, to anticipate their needs and concerns, proved to be invaluable."
Robert Walters went below the surface. They took the time to truly understand my journey, my fears, and aspirations. Joyce, my consultant, was more than a bridge between me and the job; she became a trusted guide, providing insights, addressing my concerns, and offering unwavering support.
In her new role as Deputy General Manager, Sabrina found herself empowered to make impactful decisions, to shape the direction of the company, and to inspire those around her. "This journey has been transformative," Sabrina said with a smile.
"It's a testament to the power of stepping out of your comfort zone and trusting the expertise of professionals like Robert Walters. They didn't just help me find a job; they enabled me to redefine my career, to embrace change, and to emerge stronger than ever before."
