Meet Rene — Going the Extra Mile All the Way from El Salvador
Rene has always been interested in customer service and virtual assistance. While looking for some extra work and side income to supplement his full-time job in El Salvador, he found an opportunity for remote work with IdeasUnlimited in 2016.
Rene’s Journey with IU
Starting with bilingual jobs, Rene began as a virtual assistant and gradually gained more projects from IdeasUnlimited.
After some time, sensing more possibilities for growth, Rene decided to quit his previous job and dedicate his full energy and time to projects and clients at IdeasUnlimited. It was not an easy transition, as it came with a vastly different workspace than a conventional office setup. It was a difficult decision for Rene, but one he is proud of today.
Rene recalls how Nick motivated him and guided him in the right direction to avoid cynicism and fear of failure. Eventually, Rene’s persistence and resolve were rewarded when he got more projects and responsibilities through IdeasUnlimited. The period of waiting patiently as he learned was now paying off in delivering better support services to the client and moving higher on the career bar.
IdeasUnlimited promoted Rene to Staffing Manager for the Central American region last year. He is very excited about the new opportunities for learning and growth that this position entails. He also understands the serious responsibility of recruiting his own teams for different budding projects and this makes him more resolute to provide exceptional support services to clients on behalf of IdeasUnlimited.
Presently, Rene is the Project Coordinator for an infrastructure solutions provider in the energy sector. The company has partnered with Schneider Electric and provides UPS and batteries, generators and HVAC, along with installation, maintenance and support services to many private and government agencies.
Rene helps their employees with internal coordination and communication. While the internal staff focuses on performing their core business activities, Rene and his team undertake operational support and backend support tasks—email correspondence, researching and reaching out to potential customers, coordination with vendors and documenting contracts, reports and other records. All these services are offered both in Spanish and English.
Rene has emerged as a leader and mentor within this role. He has learned to monitor and supervise his team. He is keen to improve his leadership skills and is never hesitant to take advice from the IdeasUnlimited HR department about managing team shifts, handling recruitment and training issues, and implementing IdeasUnlimited Rules and Policies for better productivity.
Rene is an avid learner, a committed worker, and one of the most disciplined members of the IdeasUnlimited Family. He is punctual and humble. He reaches out when he needs guidance and welcomes all support and suggestions.
