Before joining Linklaters, I acquired my M.B.A. and worked as a Financial Analyst for a major corporation with operations around the world.
I decided to join Linklaters for many reasons: its global presence, the diverse and welcoming culture, and the great people being just a few. However, the main thing that stood out to me during my interview process was learning that many of my future Business Team colleagues had been with the firm forever! That validated my gut feeling about the firm.
During my years at the firm, I've had the opportunity to grow professionally, interact with colleagues from the global network, and give back to society through community investment opportunities. It's gratifying to work for a firm that values my hard work and dedication and recognizes it by providing a path for career progression. One of the highlights of my journey has been my two-month secondment to the Hong Kong office as part of the Global Talent Program.
I'm very proud of the work I've done and continue to do at the firm, not just in my Finance role but also in the business management impact I've had in the São Paulo office. My background, local knowledge, and language skills have empowered me to play a more significant role in influencing decision-making and driving various positive changes.
