Totally agree with Ana Christina regarding the people you work with. Having a team that is collaborative, diverse and open-minded is very helpful.
I am really inspired by the opportunity for growth and experimentation at my company. I've been able to collaborate with other teams and join projects that traditionally would not fall under my job title. It's a great way to learn about my own strengths and opportunities and create my own career path. Having a company that encourages career growth has become very important to me.
I did not intend to join the Navy for 20 years, but I am fortunate that I did. I would not have changed it for the world.
Ana Cristina’s Answer
What I love about my career is that I had the chance to worked with so many people from different cultures and backgrounds. Also, I moved around to several countries so that gave me a different perspective about the world and it gave me the confidence to make new friends and not to be shy. Being my my own helped me a lot to become a stronger person and get a job at an amazing company, Okta.
My roles is Marketing Operations Specialist. At Okta the culture is very collaborative and open. People trust you and it is your responsibility to do your job.
