Graduate Life at Dell: An Invitation to Amsterdam

first_imgMy name is Diana, and I am an Inside Sales Representative in Bucharest who would like to share with you one of the best experiences I´ve had at Dell EMC so far.As of last year, I am part of a program called EMEA sales graduate program, which offers the chance to work in the sales field. It is a great opportunity for me to connect with people all over EMEA because I have gotten the chance to travel to different events of the company.My first international experience with Dell EMC was in Amsterdam. We had an induction there for two weeks, with graduates from different countries all around the EMEA region. Sounds really great, right? Then let’s discover together how it was.Cross your comfort zone and grow using the right IT solutionsThe first day when we arrived at the Dell office in Amsterdam we met the team and we played a speed-dating game in order to find out things about the others, and to connect with everyone. In the following days we had a lot of trainings about Dell as an organization, our culture, advantages of Dell EMC and we learned negotiation skills. After that we were split into teams to learn selling skills through different study cases and games.The trainings were really intense and in order to maintain a balance between work and fun, the core team organized a canal tour for the whole group in Amsterdam. That night was really special because we had the chance to talk a lot to each other and get to know each other better on a personal level. We also got to admire the outstanding views of the city and create a united team. So, from my point of view the canal tour was a very good idea for a team building activity.After those great days of trainings, conferences and speeches, we had the possibility to spend the weekend to have fun and discover the beautiful Amsterdam. For those who will visit the city in the future I strongly recommend you to go to the Van Gogh Museum, the Swing Over the Edge and of course to explore the beautiful city on foot.“…an essential fact that I have learned at this training was that you have to cross your comfort zone to create the best version of yourself.ShareDuring the second week, we began trainings about selling skills and possible solutions for our clients. Since we had gotten to know each other the week before, the vibe was really good and the energy level really high. It was also very interesting to find out how important the technology is in our life and how much a business can grow using the correct IT solutions. Also an essential fact that I have learned at this training was that you have to cross your comfort zone to create the best version of yourself. Our trainer helped us understand that courage and trust in ourselves is really important in our career.In addition to this, I want to say that I really enjoyed a study case where we had a role play seller-client-observer, where each of us had to present a solution for a client and to tell them why what we sell is the best. If you are interested in sales, the EMEA Sales Graduate program is the perfect program for you. I have learned how to identify the needs of our customers and how to find the best solutions. So, I think it’s a great opportunity to start a career in Dell EMC.In the final days we had great speakers talking about the pillars that we have in our company, the ERG’s (employee resources groups) that you can be part of and make a difference to the society. Also, I created a 30/60/90 day plan where I established the necessary steps for my role and the development of my career.Together we go big and win bigAmsterdam was a powerful experience, were we had a lot to learn but also a lot of fun together, we formed a strong and united team. We were all very different but we complemented each other as a team, were we all have big dreams, life stories and visions that connect us.I am really happy to be part of this programme, because it gives me the possibility to begin a career in sales, in an international environment and also to expand my knowledge in this field. Our time in Amsterdam was one of the best of my life, I met extraordinary people, I formed friendships and I can’t wait for the next event to see all of them again.If you are at the begining of your career and you are passionate about sales, technology, IT and digital transformation I can’t repeat myself enough: because then The EMEA Sales Graduate program is the perfect opportunity for you. I strongly recommend you this experience, Dell EMC is a company that offers unique chances for fresh graduates and from my point of view it is an invitation to go big and win big, together.last_img read more

Senior designs, sells bags for children’s hospital

first_imgSenior Kate Kellogg, vice president of Saint Mary’s Dance Marathon, first introduced her custom-designed canvas tote to campus in the fall of 2011. “When I was in high school, I would choose colors and fabric to create my own bag to bring to school,” Kellogg explained. “My mom’s business, the Queen and I Designs, had talented sewers that would put together exactly what I was envisioning.” Last year, when Kellogg constructed her own vision of a Saint Mary’s bag for students to haul their books around campus, she thought of incorporating Dance Marathon. “I decided to mass-produce the bag that I had wanted for my own personal use and sell it through Dance Marathon,” Kellogg said. “I thought it would be a great way for business and to raise awareness and donations for Dance Marathon.” Kellogg’s mother Jan said she and her company are very supportive of the Saint Mary’s Dance Marathon totes. “I have loved working with Kate on her bag designs,” Jan said. “It’s fun to have a mother-daughter project and to see her ideas produced as a product.” The popular navy canvas totes with a white imprinted French Cross have been extremely popular around campus. This year Kate engineered a new canvas tote for Dance Marathon with a black and tan block pattern, but still imprinted with a white French Cross that is a signature of the College. Kate said Dance Marathon has multiple fundraisers throughout the year in order to reach the final goal of $88,000. Throughout the rest of this week, Dance Marathon will be selling Kate’s custom-designed totes with 30 percent of the proceeds benefitting Riley Children’s Hospital. Along with the sale of the canvas totes, Dance Marathon is also hosting a Giveback night at Between the Buns on November 19, where 15 percent of all purchases will go towards Riley Children’s Hospital. Kate said she has enjoyed her involvement in Dance Marathon and Riley Children’s Hospital and urges all of the Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross communities to participate. “It’s great to be doing something that I love and that expresses my creativity,” she said, “while also knowing donations will be going to a great cause.”last_img read more

Salvadoran Gangs Offer Insulza Partial Disarmament as Part of Unprecedented Truce

first_imgBy Dialogo July 16, 2012 On July 12, OAS Secretary General José Miguel Insulza held a prison meeting with leaders of El Salvador’s feared gangs, who promised him “partial disarmament” as a “gesture” in the context of an unprecedented truce they began four months ago. Amid heavy security measures, in a room in La Esperanza penitentiary in northern San Salvador, Insulza spoke in private with the leaders of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and Mara 18 (M-18), who gave him a list of requests and announced their offer. “We’ve agreed to make a new gesture of good will, with which we hope (…) to contribute to restoring social peace (…); it consists of a symbolic partial disarmament,” they stressed in a joint statement, read to the press by one of the leaders of M-18, Carlos Mojica Lechuga. Insulza, who concluded a two-day visit to El Salvador to learn about the evolution of the truce on July 13, announced that the organization will design a procedure for carrying out the partial disarmament. “An appropriate reception mechanism has to be designed, some things should be verified, there are weapons that might be linked to crimes committed previously, it’s of interest to know the origin of the weapons, it will be necessary to design a procedure,” Insulza said after meeting with President Mauricio Funes. “I’ve received their proposals, I’m very impressed with what I’ve heard, it was a very significant meeting, (the truce) is a work in progress, but we’re going to give it all possible support,” Insulza stated, describing himself as “very hopeful.” The gang leaders declined to specify the number or type of weapons, but they said that they would turn them over to Insulza to be melted down and made into a monument, through military chaplain Fabio Colindres and former guerrilla commander Raúl Mijango, the mediators of the truce. One of the leaders of MS-13, Carlos Tiberio Valladares, confirmed to the press that they directly asked Insulza for the Organization of American States (OAS) to “be a guarantor of the process (so that) it leads to social peace.” MS-13 and M-18, which have links to drug trafficking and have sowed terror in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, agreed in March on a truce that, according to official data, has helped to cut the average daily homicide rate from 14 to 5.6, although sectors of society question its real effectiveness. For analyst and academic Juan Ramón Medrano, the greatest challenge is the “maintenance” of the truce and “preventing more young people from joining gangs.” The state should “take away from them” the “territories they control” with social projects, he noted. Despite the fact that as part of the truce, the gangs decided in May to halt the forced recruitment of young people and declared disputed schools “peace areas,” crimes and the disappearances of students have continued, according to human-rights organizations. Nevertheless, Mijango noted to AFP that in the first 123 days of the truce, 1,077 deaths were prevented, and there was a “significant reduction” in gang extortion targeting private individuals, retailers, and transportation workers.last_img read more

Makarska Riviera, Imotski and Vrgorac are working together to promote cycling tourism

first_imgThe race “CRO Race” was previously organized under the name “Tour of Croatia” and also passed through the Makarska Riviera, Biokovo and Zabiokovlje, and footage of the race was shown in 190 countries, which contributed globally to the promotion of this part of Split-Dalmatia counties. This is the result of cooperation between the Tourist Board of Makarska and the company Spot, which through its brand “Trail – Full Cycling Experience” is developing a cycling tourist destination of the Makarska Riviera, Biokovo and Zabiokovlje. Namely, it is a race organized by the company Top Sport Events, which started all this and proved itself through the successful organization of all editions of the tour in the past four years. This year’s race will include six stages, which will cover more than a thousand kilometers throughout Croatia. The footage of Croatia through which the race passes will be broadcast on six continents of the world. Makarska Riviera, Imotski and Vrgorac, which includes Biokovo, are actively working together to promote cycling tourism in the county. One of the projects that will promote this outdoor segment of tourism is the cycling race “CRO Race”, which starts on October 1 from Osijek, and ends on the third day in Biokovo and Makarska, reports Lokalni.hr. “Makarska Riviera, Imotski and Vrgorac are a unique area along Biokovo, ideal for the development of cycling tourism, so we signed a contract with Spot, which records the situation, after which they will propose measures to take to raise the offer to a higher level, complementing all that modern the cyclist is looking for, promoted. The development of cycling tourism is one of the strategic in the development plans of our destinations for the purpose of post-season and pre-season development”, Said Hloverka Novak Srzić, director of the Makarska Tourist Board. The development of the cycling tourist destination was entrusted to the company Spot. “We are currently checking the condition of existing trails and tracing new ones. Once we determine the complexity of the route, we go to different stakeholders. Of course, the method of route preparation, its equipment, services and other services are defined. We also have education of businessmen who we introduce to the specifics of guests, as well as local governments that we educate on how to maintain the route.”, Explains Karlo Kučan, director of the company. But he adds that he will be cycling in different stages this year. “We will cover all places on the Makarska Riviera, and cyclists will pass through all their centers. It will be spectacular! Thanks to the fantastic television footage from earlier races that toured the world, a group of journalists from the UK came, driving across Biokovo along a fascinating road leading to the very top. They were thrilled! They wrote a great report, published on 7-8 pages, a subtle, honest, own experience. We who live in that destination only when others open our eyes realize that we actually underestimate it. Cycling can bring only good to this destination, discover it in a new way, with a different view”, He explains and points out that it is necessary to develop an infrastructure that includes bike paths, but also other services that cyclists need. Miholjević notes that he participated in the meeting of the tourist board and hoteliers and is satisfied that the potential has been recognized and that there is a will for its development. Stage of the CRO Race race that passes through the Makarska Riviera, Biokovo and Zabiokovlje “After that, there is a promotional part in which we include hotels, we prepare photo, video and printed materials, and during 2020 and 2021 we will present the Makarska Riviera at four tourist fairs. The destination cannot be branded overnight”, Emphasizes Kučan, and adds that”on Biokovo we can’t do adrenaline parks because of the karst that doesn’t allow it, but we have an excellent opportunity to develop mountain bikes. Fire paths are great for the family variant. In the coastal part, we are a bit limited by the traffic on the highway, but that is why the hinterland of Biokovo is an uncut diamond for cycling tourism.”. “Beautiful nature, spectacular view, with quality roads, accommodation facilities, gastronomic offer makes Makarska Riviera and Biokovo ideal for cycling. This is a very large potential that can be greatly developed with a serious approach and program”, Announced the race organizer Vladimir Miholjevic.

COVID-19: Government to conduct PCR ‘pool tests’ in 8 provinces

first_imgThe government is looking to gear up efforts to control the spread of the coronavirus in the coming weeks, as it has ordered the task force to prepare steps to ease large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) by July.“As for easing [the PSBB] in July, the President has given instructions that we must be careful. So, both the central government and regional administrations have to prepare a plan and think of anticipatory steps,” Doni said.Doni added that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo had instructed the task force to prepare a simulated easing of the PSBB, and that his task force was now studying the timing and priorities, as well as strengthening coordination with regional heads.In pursuance of the plan, Doni said the task force must work hard to carry out mass testing to prevent the potential for transmission.“Therefore, the task force must continue to optimize its ability to prepare reagents and help areas that do not yet have PCR machines,” Doni said, adding that more PCR machines would also be sent to areas with a rising number of new cases, such as East Java.As of Wednesday, Indonesia had conducted PCR tests on a total of 169,195 samples taken from 123,572 people — 15,438 of which tested positive for the coronavirus, with 1,028 deaths.Topics : The government plans to conduct polymerase chain reaction (PCR) “pool tests” in eight provinces that have been hardest hit by the coronavirus outbreak, namely Jakarta, Banten, West Java, Central Java, East Java, Bali, North Sumatra and South Sulawesi.The pool tests will use multistage random sampling with epidemiology, statistical and survey approaches.COVID-19 task force chief Doni Monardo said his task force was currently preparing a detailed plan on the pool tests, which would target 1,000 random people to get a rough idea of the rate of COVID-19 transmission in the epicenters of the outbreak. “These 1,000 people will represent the community in each province so that we will be able to get data derived from the swab tests. We will also ask them a number of questions as respondents,” Doni said in a video conference on Tuesday.He added the results of the pool tests would provide input and appropriate consideration for ministries, institutions and regional administrations for decision-making purposes in controlling the spread of COVID-19.“So, what is now being discussed is preparation, which will lead to decisions about the smallest risks to take,” the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) head added.Read also: Businesses worry easing restrictions could prolong recoverylast_img read more
