Today it’s International Women’s Day, the Haladjian Group highlights some women working within. Discover the testimony of Chaimae G, a young woman working in a male environment as a Mining Coordinator of the Haladjian Mining department.
“I am 21 years old. Passionate about languages, I passed a Literature high level, then I turned to an International Trade BTEC. During my BTEC, I did training courses and prepared myself especially for the professional world and trade. I have been working at Haladjian Mining for almost 2 years now ! “
Can you quickly describe your position ? What do you like most in it ?
“I am in charge of Service reports, Technician’s business trips, calls for tenders. I also coordinate the missions. I work directly with the Haladjian Mining Manager and General Management to set up projects and facilitate communication with customers, processing requests, enliven the Service…
What I like about my job is the specificity of this field. Indeed, working in the distribution of mechanical parts for construction and mining equipment is a very special field and I love it! It opens eyes to a whole new world to discover, and the experience is very enriching.“
You evolve in a very male environment; how do you live with it ? Did you have to impose yourself or did you find your place naturally ?
“I live it very well, it is true that it is a very male environment, but being a woman does not in any way hamper my integration into the company. I found my place very naturally.“
What advice would you give to young women who will soon enter the world of work ?
“Especially not to undermine your mind ! Don’t give up and keep going. I had lost hope after my BTEC because I had difficulty finding a job, but I did not get demoralized. I thought that being young and without real experience of the world of work, I would not find anything.
Today I have a job that fascinates me and allows me to learn every day. I am proud of what I have accomplished, and I can say that I am proud of myself! Do not give up! Being a girl in this business has a ton of advantages contrary to what we may think. This is a field that is becoming more and more feminine and I think it is absolutely fantastic ! “
We thank Chaimae G. for her testimony, the time she took to answer these few questions and for her message full of kindness for you young ladies!
