Climbing the Ladder: My Career Journey

Crystal Zhang

Crystal Z. | Senior Advisor, Field Marketing | Xiamen

Originally Published: June 27, 2022

After graduating from university, a friend, with the excellent business thinking suggested that I trained in Dell Technologies, and in 2003, I joined. I have been responsible for sales in different regions, and have also created value for different customers, laying a solid foundation for my career. With the changes in the market and the continuous optimization and adjustment of the organizational structure, I have unlocked a lot of promotion opportunities, and the team management level has continued to rise to a new level.

In 2018, when the Internet economy was booming, I resigned from Dell Technologies and joined a friend's start up: a travel platform, responsible for the one-stop work of operation and promotion, customer expansion, and service provision. After a year of training, I made a comprehensive assessment of capital investment, risk taking and other factors, and found that I was not an entrepreneurial player, but I still felt that Dell Technologies' complete and stable system was more suitable for me. There happened to be an open position in storage at the time and I decided to return to Dell Tech.

The management communication skills and market experience accumulated in the front-end sales position have come in handy in the new role. I act as a "bridge" for communication, pass the professional information of the product to the front desk, and promote efficient and stable sales results. Also get instant feedback from the front desk to help the team make quick adjustments.

Unlock the ultimate sense of achievement, security and happiness

Looking back on the 18 years of Dell, the company has always been changing and transforming, but the atmosphere of openness, connection and growth has always been the same. Excellent colleagues helped me to continue to improve. The business-oriented model has shaped my forward-looking and overall view and cultivated the strength to be willing to challenge and promote the implementation of plans. If you often think of the good times at Dell Technologies after you leave, you might as well try to get to know this "old friend" again. If you want to pursue a sustainable development environment, Dell Technologies is the right choice.
