Tell us about your relocation path.
In 2017, I started at PUMA Argentina as a Retail Business Planner. A year later, I was changed into another position as a Retail Planning Teamhead. After some months, I was offered to go to Brazil for three months to help in the retail and e-commerce planning. I accepted the offer without hesitation. When it was time to go back to Argentina, I was given the offer to stay in the position as Planning Merchandising Teamhead permanently. Finally, I moved to Sao Paulo in September 2019.
What do you like about the experience?
It is such a fruitful experience. Not only on a professional level, but also, on a personal level. Since I arrived in Brazil, there is not a day that I did not learn something new. It is such a different culture and a completely new language. The opportunity of getting to know new people is remarkable. I highly recommend it.
Did you struggle in the beginning?
Of course! At first, it was difficult for me to leave my country and more than anything, my family, my friends, and my home. But the challenge of moving to another country was what made me take the decision. I love taking risks and plunging into new adventures. I was truly sure that what I was going to learn, was going to be worth it and superior to any difficulty I may have.
Why did you choose to relocate?
I always had the idea of living in another country for some time. The fact of arriving in Brazil temporarily and then staying permanently made the decision easier.
I really like new experiences and challenges and living abroad is without any doubt a constant challenge where the key is the capacity to adapt.
