The story started
Hello everyone! I am Frances Abbie G. Aquino, Virtual Assistant, and I will share with you my learnings and experiences here in Pearl Lemon.
Applying here in Pearl Lemon was a roller coaster ride as I really don’t have any work experience at all. It’s a combination of insecurity, nervousness, and excitement. I was hesitant to apply at first but after watching the video of Deepak – the owner of the company, under the application form, my hesitations vanished suddenly. The first thing that came to my mind after watching it was, “Oh wow, he is the owner? He’s so cool and bright”.
3 days later, HR contacted me and luckily, I was given a chance to prove myself as I still need to go through a series of training for 1 week. To be honest, I have no idea about the actual work of a virtual assistant, but I always hear it especially when the pandemic caused by Covid19 was just starting.
I was full of anxiety and doubts about myself during the trial week, I’m not a perfectionist person but during that time, I always feel like I’m not doing it right even if my trainers gave me positive feedback. My training period ended and with that, even if full of doubts, I congratulated myself for making it that far. January 24, 2022 – the exact date that I got hired. I was so happy, and I can’t explain what I really feel at that moment. I promised to myself that I will really cherish this opportunity as this is my first job and I don’t want to fail the company.
As a virtual assistant, my tasks focus more on emails and date entries. I never heard of SEO and lead generation before and even though I heard of them, I still don’t have any idea about them as just as I’ve said a while ago, I don’t have any work experience at all.
Thanks to Pearl Lemon, I learned many things that are essential not just in this field of work but also in real life. I’m not a tech-savvy person but because of my job, I learned how to work smart using devices as a tool.
Thanks to Pearl Lemon, I discovered something new about myself. I pushed my limits to test my capabilities and will continue pushing myself for more improvement which will help me not just today but also in the future.
Once again, this is Frances Abbie G. Aquino, Virtual Assistant, and this is my working experience in Pearl Lemon. Cheers!
