Senior Manager, Amaris

Dear Hélène,

Great for the application! The manager's role certainly comes with a lot of rewarding moments, as well as challenges. Those challenges, yet experienced by all managers, will vary in difficulty according to your background and past experiences.

In my case, the most challenging part of the role was actually at the very beginning. To be able to launch your activities, you will need to develop a broad network of potential customers, to call them, meet with them and their teams. To also build your credibility and positioning. This will require a lot of perseverance, rigor and resilience.

Once you have a strong start, developing your activities definitely becomes easier.

My best advice for you is to ask about those challenges during your interview process and if you decide to move forward, to give your 200% from the beginning!

Have a great interview!
