  • SolBridge Alumni Highlight: Hanseok Park">SolBridge Alumni Highlight: Hanseok Park

      This month we are proud to recognize HanseokPark, who graduated from SolBridge almost 10 years ago. He is now working as one of the leading logistics company in the world. He is currently working as a Regional Customer Manager of DHL. This interview is conducted with the help of SolBridge Alumni Association.  Q1. Pleasure to meet you! Could you briefly introduceyourself?Hello! My name is Hanseok Park, and I’m currently at DHLExpress Asia HQ as the Global Operations Manager. It has been nearly 10 yearssince I graduated. It’s a great privilege to be able to share my story with theSolBridge community.Q2: Can you please introduce the company that you areworking?DHL Express is headquartered in Germany and is currently theworld’s leading Air Express company in the industry. With over 120,000 employees,3,500 offices, 300 aircrafts, 34,500 vehicles worldwide, DHL Express operates inapproximately 220 countries. Notably, the air express industry encompasses B2B forwardingand B2C global E-commerce- which has seen recent exponential growth.Q3: How is the day as a Global Operations ManagerMy role is to develop customer needs-based solutions by consultingon the supply chain model, and I coordinate freights with client companies to ensurea seamless operation. You can say that I carry out the Front Door + Back Door responsibilities.Many would be curious on this- but I relatively have a good work-life balance. Sure,with freedom comes responsibilities for the coming year’s sales objectives, I considerthis as fate for all those that work in sales. I also go on a lot of business tripsoverseas, and they are primarily to the Asia region. I primarily focus on Multinational Corporations (MNCs) thatare technology and manufacturing based. Google for example, which is also one ofthe companies I work on- we are delivering the gears for Google Cloud servers, andconsumer electronics such as Pixel and Fitbit to worldwide research labs, servicecenters, franchise stores, Google engineers and consumers.Q4: Are there things we should know about getting a job inthe logistics industry?Employment in the distribution industry is also becoming quitedifficult. Domestically, there are some notable companies such as Samsung SDS, HyundaiGlovis and LX International. Globally- DHL, Fedex, UPS, Kuehne+Nagel, DB Schenker.As maintenance is an integral part of global supply chain, it has potential forinfinite growth. However, Korean industry is based on manufacturing and istherefore in a transitional period. As such the conditions may not be so attractive.Personally, if we were to categorize them as either superior or inferior, they arein the latter- frankly speaking.As such, for those looking for a career in the distribution industry,I recommend looking into global companies. Q5: How did you get in the distribution industry?While I was preparing for employment in a sales position in Indonesia,I had the fortunate opportunity to get in touch with Chairman Kim, Sung Kyung.Chairman Kim later introduced me to a businessman in Indonesia. Upongraduation, I was able to start my sales career in a Korean distributioncompany located in Jakarta- Indonesia’s capital. I would like to take thisopportunity to express my most sincere gratitude to Chairman Kim who providedunyielding support when I was preparing for my first embark in the world ofdistribution.Q6: You were preparing for a sales position in Indonesia? Howdid you prepare so specifically? A: When I was in school, I continuously asked myself thefollowing two questions, and I finally found the answer close to graduationWhat to do?Sales: Not the typical office job, meeting people, ratherthan repeated work, finding new projects and dive into new challengesWhere to be?Indonesia: I want to work in a freer environment than thetypical Korean working culture. I want to leverage my English skills as acompetitive advantage in a non-English country. Even if I begin as a regular staff,I want to work in an environment where I can grow quickly. I don’t know anysecond language so a language that I can quickly learn- Indonesian (BahasaIndonesia)As I narrowed the scope, I could find an area that I want todo, and can do well. In order to get the answers even quicker, I wenttravelling, consulted with my mentors, interacted with international friends, didan internship, took part in various extracurricular workshops and activities.Q7: So you are now in Hong Kong at the DHL Asia office. Any advicefor juniors that want to work overseas?A: Interestingly, I am the first ever Korean to join the HQ’ssales team. This doesn’t mean that the entrance barrier is high, but most of thetime the job opportunity is not sought after because no active research is undertaken,and not many people take up the challenge. This is what I personally fight veryregretful. I hope that students will take full advantage of the SolBridge curriculumand the faculty, as well as the international student body. By doing so, you canconsider many domestic and overseas job opportunities. Also, please take enoughtime to ask yourselves what you need to do to become a global talent.Furthermore, always refine your capabilities and attitude. Inorder to know how much you can contribute to society, you need to have a clearunderstanding of metacognition. You need to regularly put together your achievements,review company’s financial standings, directions, and desired talent, to see ifit aligns with my potentials, capabilities, leadership, as well as continuouslycontemplating on how to improve my strengths and refine my weaknesses.  Q8: Can you share your understanding of Metacognition?Yes. For example, one metrics I use to objectively evaluatemy capabilities is calculating my hourly rate. For example, if an intern ispaid 1 million KRW / month, works 160 hours, the social value would be6,250KRW. Especially for overseas employment, one needs to align theircapabilities and attributes to the country’s cost of living, ethnicity,religion, GDP, growth potential, and decide whether or not it is suitable forthem. As countries have different income tax, one needs to research on thebefore/after tax salary, flights, cost of living, transportation, healthinsurance, accommodation stipend, yearly increase, pension, before salarynegotiations.Q9: What is SolBridge to you?‘Growth Pivot’, SolBridgeWhen I was in school, I was one of those students who lackedEnglish skills. After returning from the military, there were some students whodidn’t view my in a positive light as I tried speaking English to Koreans. Later,students knew of my hard work and struggles, and helped me out a lot as well. SolBridgehas taught me that I lacked in so many ways to do the things I wanted to do. Albeita little late, I received a lot of help to make mid/long-term plans, and I did everythingI could to be recognized as a valuable member in society. SolBridge- my pivotof growth, thank you!If the opportunity allows, I would love to visit SolBridgeand meet the faculty and current students, and share many good stories.To my seniors, juniors, classmates- I wish you the best ofluck in your endeavors, and let’s talk all about it when we have the chance tomeet.Those interested in global careers, please do not hesitateto reach out

  • SolBridge Alumni Highlight: Dahye Lee">SolBridge Alumni Highlight: Dahye Lee

     This month we are proud to recognize Dahye Lee, who enrolled in SolBridge back in 2014. She is now working as one of the biggeste-commerce company in South Korea. She is currently working as a Recruiting Coordinator of Coupang. This interview is conducted with the help of SolBridge Alumni Association.“Be bold and utilize the resources around you” Q1.Pleasure to meet you! Could you briefly introduce yourself?Hi! My name is Dahye Lee - currently at Coupang as the Recruiting Coordinator (RC). I entered SolBridge back in 2014, and it’s such apleasant surprise to be doing this interview! Q2. Could you tell me what motivatedyou to work at Coupang?Coupang’s RC process is very intact. HR carries outvarious engagement activities to ensure that the candidates have the bestpossible Coupang experiences. This came across to me as something veryattractive. I’m involved in various HR projects to contribute to theimprovement of the overall experiences. I joined Coupang during the COVID pandemic, manycompanies were going through a period of downsizing of stagnant growth. Coupanghowever were expanding to Taiwan and Japan. I thought that I’d also be able togrow together with the company.  Q3. What’sit like to be a Recruiting Coordinator at Coupang? I think many people may be unfamiliar with the RCfield, so I’ll briefly provide some background. In the Business CandidateExperience team, we consider each candidate as a primary customer. We carry outvarious activities to ensure that they have the optimal customer experiences.Notably- notification of a prompt interview scheduling, signing of theemployment contract and on-boarding. All of the process is closely monitoredand managed to ensure that the in/external customers will have positiveemployment experiences.  Let me briefly summarize my dailyroutine at work. I start the day by checking new candidates andcross-checking their current status with the respective recruiters. Then Icoordinate their interview schedules, and communicate with interviewers inadvance. As this is a subsidiary company recruitment, I coordinate with theirHR to align the real-time updates and share them with my team. I wrap up theday by checking the meetings and interviews for the following day. Q4. Beforeyou joined Coupang, I heard that you had various experiences. Is there aparticularly memorable experience you’d like to share?Before entering Coupang, I worked as a flightattendant at one of the Middle East Airlines. The position had nodirect relevance to my major, and it was a huge challenge for me to live andwork in a Muslim country that was so culturally different. At SolBridge, I grew as a person together with so manystudents from across the world. Overcoming and understanding these differencesgave me the desire to work in a larger environment. Qatar Airways has over 160destinations with flight attendants from all corners of the world. I thoughtthis would be an invaluable experience and I was lucky to have been able togain such a precious experience. Q5. Whatdoes SolBridge mean to you?[SolBridge - ‘Learning the Challenge Spirit’]It’s a place for learning what it is like to take on achallenge. Apart from my academic studies, I applied for a short-term study program in China, overseas internship program, workingstudent scholarship, student council and various extracurricular activities.Not only did I improve my language skills, also I was able to gain a huge boostin my self-confidence. Even at times of difficulties, the professors and the CDC(CareerDevelopment Center) were always willing to give helpful advice. SolBridge is aplace where I was able to elevate my tipping point and widen my values - forthat I am so grateful. Q6. Advice to SolbridgersI would really ask them to reach out to the professorsand seniors. There are times where you just don’t have a clue where to start.Apply from the small programs at school. Start, then if you face some obstacles- consult with professors or seniors. Assuming you are starting from scratch,there are quite a lot of things to prepare. So always keep an eye on your fieldof interest, and new updates. Don’t just think on your own - be bold andutilize the resources around you!

After graduation, she applied totrainee programs which helped her open doors, and now Victória is an associatepart of the People & Organization department at PwC. PwC is a consultingcompany that provides Trust Solutions and Consulting Solutions.Here’s a catch-up betweenVictória and SolBridge on what she’s done after she’s graduated. 1. What is your Full name, Major, Year graduated:My name is LuisaVictória Zacharias Martin, graduated in August 2020. 2. Can you tell us the company thatyou are working, its location, and itsmission and purpose, I am currently workingat PwC at Brazil.Our company’s mission is to providean unrivaled level of service and to contribute to the sustained growth of theeconomy through the execution of vigorous, fair, and high-quality audits basedon clear leadership and creative teamwork. PwC's purpose is to buildtrust in society and solve important problems.3. Can you tell us your role,position and responsibilities? I am currently anAssociate 2, in the People & Organization department. I'm currently responsiblefor the clients’ main deliverables using Office 365 to do so, this includesmapping indicators, SLAs and opportunities. Not only that but also, to givesupport to the workforce planning, people analytics and organizationaldesign. Lastly, I've been acting as a scrum master setting agile rituals,scheduling, transcribing and sometimes translating meetings to multiplelanguages.4. What did you do after graduation and some of the steps you’ve taken to reach this position? After graduating, I decidedto apply for trainee programs after taking into consideration that in Brazildoing so can open many doors when you don't have any work experience. In myopinion, something to keep in mind when looking for a job is that you will berejected a lot of times, especially when looking for an entry-level one, andwith time it will get better. I've learned how to grow a thicker skin andeventually succeed, someone believed in my potential and someone will believein yours too. Lastly, I've never stoppedstudying something I liked. I firmly believe that when we start working and getswept into the routine it's very easy to lose sight of our goals, hobbies andinterests. For me, I'm always studying or trying something new, even if it'snot something that directly helps in my career.5. Can you tell us how your time in Solbridge, special events, andmemories, have helped you? My time at Solbridge wasfundamental for me to get to where I am right now. I've met people there that Ihaven't seen in years, but we still keep in touch and call each other every nowand then. Not only that but, during that time I went to almost allexcursions, participated in every single event I could and enjoyed the beststudent life possible.  For instance, I won 1stplace in the Asian Case Study competition and in the Leadership Camp with bothmy teammates. I participated shortly in the debate club and the experience wasincredible, Professor Danielle was such an amazing mentor for me.  Moreover, I was amerit-based full-time scholarship student and Brazil's country representativefor 3 years. It was a lot of work to train for a performance or to cook for somany people at once, but thankfully everything went according to plan (evenwhen it didn't). My first cultural day I was the only Brazilian at Solbridgeand by the end of the event I was literally covered in chocolate. Quite a sweetmemory if I may.  Lastly, Solbridgehelped me to change my views of the world and helped me to grow into the firstbest version of myself. I really hope you guys enjoy your time there as much asI did. 6. Do you have any advice for students whowant to pursue this field?Working at one of the BigFour isn't an easy task, but it's a great way to start a career. If it'spossible to get a job in one of them, it's wonderful and you should apply forthe job openings and do your best. However, if it's not possible don't beatyourself up for that. Our careers can change drastically even if they didn'tstart at the Big Four, what matters the most is to find something that is worthit and that matters to you.  Become a global citizen ornot, never give up your dreams and goals.
